Analysis of Aluminum Alloys with the Avio 200 ICP-OES Following London Metal Exchange Guidelines

Due to its unique characteristics, aluminum (Al) is used in a wide variety of commercial and industrial applications. Its utility can be further enhanced by combining it with other metals to create aluminum-based alloys, where the non-aluminum additives can make up to 15% of the total alloy, by weight.

Because of its popularity and multiple compositions, the London Metal Exchange (LME) lists four different specifications for Al alloy compositions. In these specifications, silicon, copper, zinc, and iron are considered major additions, as they are mostly greater than 1% composition by weight. Therefore, these four elements must be determined with greater accuracy (± 2%) than the others.

This work describes the determination of additives to Al in aluminum alloys at the LME specifications using the Avio® 200 hybrid scanning ICP-OES, an ideal choice for labs performing this application thanks to its charge-coupled device (CCD) detector, providing simultaneous background and analyte measurement, important when dealing with complex matrices, such as alloys.

Analysis of Impurities in Aluminum with the Avio 200 ICP-OES Following London Metal Exchange Guidelines

Due to aluminum’s varied uses and popularity, there are many grades available. The London Metal Exchange (LME) lists specifications for two commonly-used aluminum (Al) purities: 99.5% and 99.7%1, with each having up to six inorganic impurities specified. ICP-OES is the best technique for measuring these impurities at these levels due to its ability to easily handle high-matrix samples and simplicity of operation.

This work describes the analysis of impurities in Al at the LME specifications using the Avio® 200 hybrid scanning ICP-OES, an ideal choice for this application – its optical design provides excellent light throughput, essential for measuring lower concentrations with shorter analytical times, plus, its charge-coupled device (CCD detector) provides simultaneous background and analyte measurement, important for samples such as metal matrices.

Early Detection of Chloride in 3-MCPD Precursors in Palm Oil through the Analysis of Chloride in Edible Oil with the Avio 200 ICP-OES

During the production of palm oil, 3-MCPD forms from the reaction of acylglycerol with the chloride ion (Cl-). 3-MCPD is a potentially carcinogenic compound, with a tolerable daily intake of 2 µg/kg of bodyweight. As a result, the palm oil industry limits the 3-MCPD concentration to less than 10 mg/kg.

Because 3-MCPD only forms in the presence of Cl-, removal of free Cl- is critical. Chloride is introduced from the raw palm fruit, which accumulates Cl- by uptake from the soil, water, and fertilizer. During the processing of the palm fruit, steam is introduced to remove as much Cl as possible. However, if all Cl is not removed, 3-MCPD can be formed in further refining steps. Therefore, after initial processing, the crude palm oil (CPO) must be monitored for chloride content.

This work describes the ability to measure chloride extracted from palm oil by ICP-OES, leveraging the unique capabilities of PerkinElmer’s Avio® 200 hybrid-scanning system.

Meeting the Challenges of Soil Analysis with the Avio 200 ICP-OES

The analysis of soils for elemental contents presents challenges during the sample preparation step. A common method for preparing a soil sample for inorganic elemental analysis involves digesting the soil sample in an acid that is heated to near-boiling to extract the elements for analysis. When using open vessels in heating blocks, this extraction method typically takes four hours or more to complete. The sample must then be centrifuged or filtered to remove solid particles prior to analysis. The use of a microwave digestion system can speed this up significantly by completing the acid digestion in less than 50 minutes.

Meeting the RoHS Directive with Microwave Sample Preparation and the Avio 200 ICP-OES

With the increasing demand for electronics, manufacturers are continually developing new products with enhanced capabilities, and consequently, the lifetime of electronics is becoming shorter as consumers more frequently upgrade to newer, more advanced models. The result is an increasing number of electronics being discarded, with a high likelihood that metals will enter the environment. To address this issue, the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive implements limits for the levels of toxic metals of greatest concern, which can be present in electronic devices.

This work demonstrates the ability of PerkinElmer’s Avio® 200 hybrid-scanning ICP-OES with the Titan MPS digestion system to rapidly and accurately measure elements in a variety of sample types which fall under the RoHS directive.

The Analysis of Brines with the Avio 200 ICP-OES

The most common form of brines is sodium chloride (NaCl)-based. These are used primarily in the production of chlorine gas (Cl2) via electrolysis and the polymeric membrane cell process, in which brines are passed through an ion-exchange membrane, where the brine is de-chlorinated via electrolysis to produce chlorine gas. This is the most widely used means of producing Cl2 because the membrane cell process consumes the least amount of energy compared to other Cl2 production processes.

The membrane must remain clean, as contamination will poison it. And since replacing the membrane is expensive, it should only be changed when needed – this can be defined by monitoring the elemental concentrations in the brine, particularly elements which can poison the membrane: aluminum, barium, calcium, iron, magnesium, nickel, silicon, and strontium. These elements should be present at less than 0.1 mg/L in the brine, meaning that low concentrations have to be measured accurately.

Brine analysis presents a challenge due to the extremely high levels of total dissolved solids and the low analyte levels. And because of its ability to handle high levels of dissolved solids, ICP-OES is the preferred analytical technique for brine analysis.

This work demonstrates the ability of PerkinElmer’s Avio 200 hybrid-scanning ICP-OES to accurately measure important contaminants at low levels in brines.

    PerkinElmer's ICP-OES Flat Plate Plasma System

    A robust and stable plasma is essential when performing analytical analyses by inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES). The plasma is traditionally generated by passing argon through a series of concentric quartz tubes (the ICP torch) within a helical, radio frequency (RF) induction coil. Once established, this highly-ionized argon plasma canreach temperatures as high as 10,000 K, allowing for complete atomization of the compounds within a sample and minimizing the potential for chemical interferences.

    PerkinElmer's patented Flat Plate™ plasma technology for the Avio® series ICP-OES provides several advantages over traditional helical coil systems - while capable of accommodating the same sample introduction systems and achieving comparable analytical precision, Flat Plate technology achieves greater plasma robustness and stability because of its unique design, leading to less sample loss, greater analytical signal, lower argon consumption, and less maintenance.

    The Determination of Metals in Non-Medical Face Masks

    With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the use of face masks by the general public has become a critical personal protective measure to minimize person-to-person transmission. While health care workers use medical or surgical masks, the general population uses non-medical, otherwise known as hygienic, face masks to greatly reduce the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 by capturing droplets and aerosols from those infected with the virus.

    In response to the increased demand for both the number and variety of non-medical face masks, many companies are now producing them to meet the public’s need, and with this great variety, the quality and the safety of the face masks must be assessed. This work describes the considerations surrounding metal analysis in hygienic face masks used to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
