DIANO X-Ray Diffraction systems are used in a wide variety of applications. Diffraction is one of the most powerful methods available for fundamental research, product development and production control. As a non-destructive procedure, DIANO Diffraction systems are used throughout industry, education and independent laboratories. The following list gives you a sample of the many and diverse diffractometer applications solved by DIANO today.
  • Furnish a unique and unquestionable characterization of individual chemical compounds.
  • Qualitative and quantitative determination of compounds in a mixture.
  • Positive identification of the phases of identical chemical formula but differing in crystal structure and in physical properties.
  • A non-destructive method of determining residual surface stresses in metals.
  • Identification of inclusions in metals.
  • Determination of the amount of retained austenite in alloy steels.
  • Study of the mechanism of fatigue and other types of metal failure.
  • Study of precipitation and hardening.
  • Study of relations between time and temperature of anneal.
  • Determination of quench and temper structures of spring steel.
  • Determination of the structure of welds and the presence of strains or distortion.
  • Determination of the structure and chemical changes occurring during sintering, fusing and other thermal treatments.
