FAST AND RELIABLE
The laboratories are accredited under ISO/IEC 17025 and are actively participating in inter-laboratory tests and international round robins.
RCI Analytical Services The Netherlands – RvA registration nr.: L611
RCI Asia Assayers – MASM registration nr.: TL110
RCI Analytical Services Ukraine – NAAU registration nr.: 2T1083
RC Inspection Group companies are carrying out an independent qualitative and quantitative evaluation of the chemical elements contained in metals listed on the LME. By using subsequently required techniques to define the required purity and minimum assay that registered brands must meet.
In addition, RCI Analytical Services determines the Gold and Silver content in Copper-, Zinc- and Lead Concentrates. By applying Fire Assay / Cupellation techniques with ICP-OES Finish in combination with Graphite Furnace AAS and Titration.
Furthermore, the laboratory based in Mariupol – Ukraine, is approved by the Grain and Feed Trade Association (GAFTA). As a result, they are competent to issue commercial analytical certificates for grain products which are traded under GAFTA contracts.
The analysis are performed using all relevant modern analytical techniques such as:
- ICP-OES (Inductively Coupled Plasma-Optical Emission Spectroscopy),
- X-ray Fluorescence,
- Instrumental Gas Analysis for all relevant gases,
- X-ray Diffraction (XRD) Analysis,
- Fire Assay / Cupellation,
- Muffle furnaces,
- Chlorine determination,
- Hardgrove Grindability Index,
- Proximate analyzers,
- Porosity test device,
- Grain mill,
- Infrared analyzer,
- Laboratory device for gluten index,
- Hectoliter test weight device for grain.
- Sulfur analyzers
Most recent additions to the laboratory equipments consists of the PinAAcle 500 Flame Atomic Absorption Spectrometer and the PinAAcle 900Z (Graphite furnace) Atomic Absorption Spectrometer.
The PinAAcle 500 is the world’s first completely corrosion-resistant flame atomic absorption spectrometer, designed to withstand the harshest environments and most corrosive samples. Resulting in a better consistency and stability for all analysis in future years.
The PinAAcle 900Z is a perfect addition to the laboratory with its longitunidal Zeeman system with a true double-beam design for fast start-up and exceptional long-term stability.
Due to the high precision and stability, these systems will solely be used for the analysis of precious metals in a whole variety of geological samples.
