DC Arc

Prodigy and the DC Arc Technique

The ultimate solution for elemental analysis of solid samples

Fast, quantitative, elemental analyses of difficult samples are hallmarks of the DC Arc approach. Few other techniques can challenge the ease-of-use or productivity of DC Arc when it comes to samples that are difficult or impossible to digest. Prodigy DC Arc performs elemental analysis of samples in their native form without sample digestion. Samples such as:

  • Ceramics and Glass
  • Metal Oxides, Carbides, Borides, Nitrides
  • Refractory powders such as SiC
  • Graphite Powder
  • Precious Metals & Traces in the Metals
  • Geological Materials
  • Nuclear Materials – Uranium Oxide, Plutonium Oxide
  • Soils, Sludge, Ashes
  • Paints

For some applications, such as the measurement of trace elements in high purity copper, DC Arc is one of the only techniques available that can provide the sensitivity and ease-of-use needed.
