Surmet's Analytical Capabilities

X-Ray Diffraction

X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) is an important tool for characterizing powders and bulk samples. It is typically used to determine composition, phase, crystal structure, and lattice parameters. Our engineers and scientists use XRD for quality control and R&D work.


Surmet has vacuum, controlled atmosphere and air furnaces capable of synthesizing and heat treating powders in tonnage quantities. Some were custom-designed and for manufacturing and developmental operations.

Particle Size Distribution

Particle Size Distribution (PSD) is another important tool for quality control of powder production. Surmet's equipment is capable of analyzing powder of sizes ranging from a few nanometers to hundreds of microns.


Surmet's optical microscopy lab has several stereomicroscopes and compound microscopes for production and research.
