Title and Description
Cement Clinker Preparation and Microscopic Examination

Cement Clinkers are an intermediate product in the production of Portland Cement, one of the key ingredients in the manufacturing of concrete. Microscopic examination and analysis of Clinkers is a Quality Assurance process that assesses the nature and quality of Clinker constituents. This Webinar will discuss the process of sample preparation, microscopic examination, and the assessment of Cement Clinkers.

Carbon and Nitrogen Determination in Adhesives, Laminates, and Cement Fiber Board

Determination of carbon and nitrogen in construction materials plays an important role in maintaining quality and durability of these products. This webinar will focus on this application using both the LECO CN928 and the C832. Data will be presented from a wide range of materials used in the construction industry. | Presented by Fred Schultz, Applications Chemist

Total Sulfur and Carbon Determination in Cement and Raw Materials

This webinar will review the application of the LECO SC832 family for the determination of sulfur and carbon in a wide variety of construction materials. Sample types covered in this presentation include cement, fly ash and ore materials. In addition, the basic operating principles will be covered as well as software features that can be used to simplify the analysis and reporting of results. | Presented by Lloyd Allen, Ph.D., Director Technical Services Laboratory

Basic Metallographic Analysis of Welds

Dave Coulston discusses what benefits can be derived from the different weld examinations and how best to prepare welds for such analyses, as well as typical weld measurements and examples of automated hardness testing of welds.

Determination of Moisture in Welding Flux

The American Welding Society (AWS) method A4.4M:2001 (R2006) “Standard Procedures for Determination of Moisture Content of Welding Fluxes and Welding Electrode Flux Coatings” outlines the appropriate methodology for sample preparation and analysis for this application. Moisture content in the flux can be correlated to the hydrogen content in the weld metal, and to varying degrees, the potential for hydrogen embrittlement. Clearly, determination of moisture content in welding flux is necessary to understand the quality of the final weld. Join us to learn how the LECO RC612 can be utilized to quantify the moisture present in welding flux samples, as outlined by AWS A4.4:2001 (R2006). Adam Darling, Analytical Chemist, LECO Corporation

Analysis of Carburized Steels by Glow Discharge Spectroscopy

Precise measurement of carbon in carburized steel can be challenging due to changing concentrations throughout the hardened case of a sample. Glow discharge spectroscopy (GDS) offers a repeatable ability to measure carbon in a region spatially discrete from organic carbon on the near surface and in the base material. The presentation includes comparisons to other measurements, relationships to microhardness measurements, and characterization of the materials with GDS compositional depth profiles and bulk analyses.

Metallographic Preparation and Analysis of Carburized Steel

Many steel components can benefit from surface hardening, which improves wear resistance while maintaining a part’s toughness. Surface hardening can be accomplished by nitriding, induction hardening, or even shot peening; but carburizing remains the most viable choice for many applications. In this webinar, Dave Coulston explains what carburizing is, how it is accomplished, and then describes the important chemical, metallurgical and mechanical property results of a carburizing treatment. This is followed by metallographic preparation of carburized steel and microscopic evaluation of the carburized layer.
