Analyzing Plastic Microparticles with the Agilent 8700 LDIR Laser Chemical Imaging System 10.22184/2227-572X.2022.12.1.68.77
Agilent has developed a new, unparalleled equipment for the analysis of plastic microparticles, as well as a method for visualizing chemical composition based on direct laser IR spectroscopy – the Agilent 8700 LDIR. The Agilent 8700 LDIR with automated Agilent Clarity software was tested on real samples collected in the Indian Ocean using the Geesthacht Microplastics Fractionation (GIMPF) system. It has shown high efficiency and reliability for the search and characterization of microparticles and microfibers of plastics in various samples.

Experience of Using a MAES Analyzer for Analytical Control of Uranium Products in the Central Plant Laboratory of the Novosibirsk Chemical Concentrates Plant 10.22184/2227-572X.2022.12.1.38.42
The VMK-Optoelektronika company has made a significant contribution to the development of spectral instrumentation for atomic emission spectrometry. The cooperation of the Central Plant Laboratory of the Novosibirsk Chemical Concentrates Plant with this company began in the mid‑1990s with the upgrading of spectrographs and quantometers. At present, an Express spectrometer, which includes a universal Vezuvii‑3 generator. Flexibility in setting the generator discharge parameters and the capabilities of the Atom 3.3 software allow analysis of uranium powder samples evaporated from the graphite electrode crater with metrological characteristics that meet regulatory requirements. The Express spectrometer allows the Central Plant Laboratory to successfully cope with the tasks of analytical control of uranium products and other analytes.
Experience of Using the MAES Analyzer for Analytical Control of Lithium Products in the Central Laboratory Plant of The Novosibirsk Chemical Concentrates Plant 10.22184/2227-572X.2022.12.1.44.47
Analytical control of lithium production at the Novosibirsk Chemical Concentrates Plants carried out by the Proximate Analysis Laboratory which is part of the Central Plant Laboratory. The Proximate Analysis Laboratory has at its disposal three spectrometric systems that allow analysis by flame photometry. The object of analysis is a process solution, which can contain analyte elements in a wide range of concentrations. Concentrations in the range of 0.01–5 mg / l are determined using a modifiedS‑115 spectrometer with a MAES analyzer, concentrations in the range of 0.1 mg / l‑100 mg / l are determined on a Pavlin spectrometer, and high concentrations (up to 70 g / l) on a Kolibri‑2 spectrometer. The analysis is controlled from the Atom software, which has extensive capabilities.
Experience of the Spectral Analysis Laboratory of the NPO NIIIP-NZiK company 10.22184/2227-572X.2022.12.1.48.56
The Spectral Analysis Laboratory of the Central Plant Laboratory of the NPO NIIIP-NZiK performs incoming inspection and monitoring in the production of metal alloys based on tin, iron, copper, aluminum, and zinc in order to ensure the quality of products manufactured by the company. The product assortment ranges from foil and wire to heavy plates, sheets, and profiles. Atomic emission analysis is carried out using two spectral systems: an ISP‑30 spectrograph with a MAES analyzer, a Vezuvii‑3 generator, and a Kristall stand and an Express spectrometer. A comparison of the analytical capabilities of the two spectral systems has been carried out, showing that the spectral system based on the ISP‑30 is inferior in analytical capabilities to the Express.
