Optical emission spectroscopy (OES) technology has been relied upon for years to deliver the full chemistry of a sample with excellent precision and accuracy. However, the rise of handheld laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) analyzers that boast their ability to test for carbon has challenged this perception. But can they provide the precision and accuracy that’s so critical in this field?
We understand the industry’s need to meet the evolving regulations and industry standards, including American Petroleum Institute (API) standards and the new PHMSA "Mega Rule," which highlights the importance of selecting the right analysis methods.
