Steel plays a huge role in almost everyone’s daily life across an array of industries. To fulfil its requirements within these applications, steel must be tailored individually via alteration of the micro-structure or the chemical composition. For example, properties such as brittleness can be influenced by impurities like sulfur atoms. The amount of carbon in steels can quickly massively change the micro-structure and thus the material’s behavior by forcing a phase transition
Regardless of the application area, highly precise, quick and dust-free carbon and sulfur analysis is necessary to effectively tailor the required material properties.
