Elemental Analysis

Elemental analyzers provide elemental composition of minerals, chemical compounds, soil and waste. Elemental analysis can be qualitative and quantitative and applied to bulk and surface analysis.

HORIBA provides a wide range of elemental analyzers including:

  • Inductively Couple Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometer [ICP]
  • Glow Discharge Optical Emission Spectrometers [GD-OES]
  • Carbon/Sulfur & Oxygen/Nitrogen/Hydrogen analyzer
  • Sulfur-in-Oil analyzer
  • X-ray Fluorescence analyzer [XRF]


These instruments are used over a broad range of industries such as:

  • Energy and Fuel for the investigation of Lithium-ion battery, characterization of CIGS [CuInGaSe2] solar cells and sulfur-in-oil analysis
  • Mined Materials and Metal for elemental analysis of metals, ores, and other inorganic materials
  • Environment and Agriculture for plant, soil and fertilizer quality

ICP-OES Spectrometers

Do you need fast, accurate results in your laboratory? Want an instrument that will grow with you and your business? The HORIBA Scientific ICP Spectrometers with their innovative design provide a tool that will increase your lab productivity not only with fast analysis time, but with less complicated methods, shorter warm-up time and better performance.

RF Glow Discharge Spectrometers

HORIBA Scientific Pulsed RF Glow Discharge Spectrometers are used in universities where they contribute to the development of new materials with coatings at nano-scale and upward and in industries to monitor photovoltaic devices manufacturing, to understand the origin of corrosion on painted car bodies, to assess the composition of precious metals, to control hard disks or LED manufacturing, to improve Li batteries, etc.

Cross collaboration with the advanced plasma coating research community has helped to drastically improve the instrumentation in the last 15 years, ISO standards have been published and the technique is now well established for material characterisation.

Carbon / Sulfur Analyzers (EMIA Series)

HORIBA's advantaged combustion technology makes carbon and sulfur analysis easier with great performance and more sophisticated functions.

The carbon and sulfur analyzers in the EMIA-Expert, EMIA-Pro, EMIA-V2 series, EMIA-8100 series are products of the vast experience and technology accumulated by HORIBA over many years in the production of equipment for elemental analysis. The variety of models available allows you to select the furnace system that is best-suited to your target samples and applications.

Each model is equipped with unique and sophisticated functions that support accurate and fast carbon and sulfur analysis.

Oxygen / Nitrogen / Hydrogen Analyzers (EMGA Series)

An abundance of analytical functions and excellent, stable control technologies provide fast, high precision analysis of materials ranging from micro-quantity sample to high-concentration samples.

The EMGA series is ready for variety of applications from reserch and development to on-site (field) analysis.

Micro-XRF Analyzers

The XGT X-ray Fluorescence micro-analyzers combine the fast, non-destructive elemental analysis of energy dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (EDXRF) with the capability to pinpoint individual particles with diameters down to 10 µm in size. Automated sample scanning provides detailed images of element distribution, over areas as large as 10cm x 10cm.

No other technique provides this depth of information with so little fuss. Simply position the sample, and the measurement can begin. Optical and elemental views are seamlessly merged, with the fastest possible acquisition times.

Sulfur-in-Oil Analyzers

HORIBA's series of Sulfur-in-Oil Analyzers have been the overwhelming choice in the petroleum industry for years. Continuous improvements in performance and usability allow us to offer a range of instruments to suit your requirements.

Our XRF sulfur analyzers comply with ASTM D4294 and ISO 8754 while offering the most cost effective alternative for sulfur in petroleum measurement.
