Laboratory analysis

Everything from A to Z in material analysis


thyssenkrupp’s Steel division examines solid, liquid, and gaseous materials in its ultramodern laboratories to determine their complex chemical compositions.

Did you know that thyssenkrupp’s Steel division maintains a number of Technology and Innovation labs in which nearly 60,000 analyses are performed every month? Employees there examine the compositions of a variety of materials ranging from mineralogical raw materials and metals to coatings and recycled materials.

Our lab technicians investigate water, air, and soil samples through routine testing or comprehensive systems analyses to determine the ecological or economic benefits of these products that are so vital to our daily lives. For example, water is both an essential operating resource in manufacturing our products and an indispensable product in maintaining our own lives.

60,000 analyses every month in the labs of thyssenkrupp. Things can get pretty colorful, too.

We uncover the hidden properties of materials

One of the most important tasks of our chemists is to regularly analyze drinking, boiler, dump, and waste water. The composition of coal, natural gas, and the gases from coking plants and blast furnaces is analyzed to optimize the operational processes and reduce our carbon footprint. In the lubricants lab we investigate which oils and greases are best suited for reducing abrasion or protecting materials from corrosion.

The chemists and their analyses enable production processes that are as environmentally friendly as possible and extremely efficient and allow for further processing of by-products or disposal of waste products. We naturally use state-of-the-art scientific methods to investigate our products at every stage of the manufacturing process.

We have quickened the pace of our monitoring of metallurgical processes: It only takes us 200 seconds to proceed from the preparatory work to the analysis.
