Optical Emission Spectroscopy (OES), or Spark Testing, is a well trusted and widely used analytical technique that determines the elemental composition of a broad range of metals.
In the case of pipeline integrity inspections, Spark Testing is used to determine carbon content of existing pipeline materials. This determines the weldability of the new pipe replacement material to the existing materials and guides the selection of optimal welding techniques and procedures.
