Eltra GmbH, Haan, Germany, is celebrating forty years of innovation in elemental analysis, following the development of its first carbon and sulfur analyser in 1981. Its focus from the beginning, the company states, has been on the design of analysers for the precise determination of carbon (C), hydrogen (H), nitrogen (N), oxygen (O) and sulfur (S) element concentrations in solids, and over the years the product portfolio has been further expanded and refined.
Today, the company is viewing its ELEMENTRAC series as a milestone for C/S and O/N/H analysis in Powder Metallurgy and Additive Manufacturing, offering ease of use, fast analysis times and reliable results for metal powders and processed samples.
In addition to providing high precision and detection sensitivity, Eltra states that the ELEMENTRAC systems are also robust enough to provide reliable measurement results in challenging conditions.
Eltra became part of the Verder Group in 2012 and was integrated into its Scientific Division, which is home to other companies from the laboratory and analytical sector, including Retsch and Microtrac. Eltra is represented in more than 80 countries by a broad sales and distribution network.
