Millions of Metal Shelving Units Recalled Due to Potential Injury Hazard from Shelves Bending or Breaking
Advanced MicroAnalytical offers product failure analysis and other material testing services to ensure products meet manufacturer specifications.
Salem, NH, March 15th, 2021 The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recently announced that approximately 2.2 million shelving units are being recalled due to an injury hazard. The recalled units, built with a steel frame and plywood shelves, were manufactured in the United States and sold online through major online retailers from January of 2015 through September of 2020. According to CPSC, the shelves can fail to support the 800-pound weight load as stated on the packaging, posing an injury hazard to the consumer. At the time.......[Read More]
Identifying Soot and Other Soot-Like Materials to Resolve Environmental and Industrial Challenges
Advanced MicroAnalytical offers unknown material identification services to detect and categorize unexplained residues, deposits and other unknown substances.
Salem, NH, March 2nd, 2021 Soot and soot-like materials can appear in a building or manufacturing facility due to a number of reasons. These materials may deposit on floors, walls, furnishings and other objects or materials. Quite often, they are observed around ventilation grilles and electrical outlets. The culprit for this “ghosting” phenomenon is sometimes caused by smoke residues or due to activities and materials being used within the property. Soot, also known as black carbon, is a fine-grained solid residue that results.......[Read More]

X-Ray Material Imaging Provides Industry with Precise Details of Internal Structures and Features
Advanced MicroAnalytical offers X-ray imaging, 3D X-ray CT and other exacting material testing services to support a wide range of industries.
Salem, NH, October 22nd, 2020 X-ray imaging is a well-known method for examining the internal structural composition of a material in a nondestructive manner. This can be achieved because X-rays penetrate most substances and are only absorbed by relatively dense materials, allowing the inside of many materials to be examined without destroying or damaging it. As an inspection tool, X-rays are often used to document internal structures and measure parts. With the substantial range of magnifications possible with a modern industrial X-ray.......[Read More]
Identification and Characterization of Crystalline Materials Utilizing X-Ray Diffraction
Advanced MicroAnalytical provides precision testing services utilizing XRD and other advanced techniques to provide clients with answers and solutions to material challenges.
Salem, NH, September 29th, 2020 X-ray diffraction (XRD) is a technique that is widely used today for the identification and characterization of crystalline materials. It is a rapid and nondestructive technique based on Bragg’s law that can offer scientists and engineers a wealth of information when examining crystalline materials. Due to the long-range order of the atoms or molecules in the structure of crystalline materials, a sample will generate unique diffraction patterns when irradiated with X-rays. These patterns can then be.......[Read More]
