Ultra Precise Chemical Analysis by ICP-OES
Boron Determination for Manufacturers of Synthetic Detergents
Manufacturers of synthetic detergents need to accurately determine the level of boron in their products, but the methods available have been less precise than required.
Boron is an important additive in soaps and detergents, as it
- controls alkalinity, which is needed to remove dirt;
- softens the water, vital in areas with hard water;
reduces the temperature and time required for a clean wash, so reducing the overall energy consumption.
HRL has set up a method to ensure ultimate precision for the determination of boron in detergents using ICP-OES.*
This method can be applied to the detergent industry, but also to other industries where high precision and accuracy are required. Some of these industries may include the chemical manufacturing, speciality metals, and precious metals industries.
This method is fast, economical, and provides extremely accurate results, reducing uncertainty around manufacturing. It is also possible to lower operating cost by ensuring the minimum required material is added to obtain the desired outcome.
