  • New developments for the quantification of non-conductive materials (Slags, inclusions) in the steel industry by optical emission spectometires (laser, spark)


Spark source OES has been developed intensively during recent years, leading to the use of pulse discrimination analysis (PDA-OES) to provide information about metal desoxidation.
At the end of this research (applied on low carbon and stainless steel grades), we can conclude that some degree of consistency has emerged from the various inclusions content assessment methods considered (chemical analysis, optical emission spectonometry and electron microscopy with EDS analysis)
