Laboratory Facilities

EAL has both fixed and mobile laboratory facilities equipped to analyse propellants to all current specifications. The fixed laboratory contains Gas Chromatography, Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy, UV/Vis Spectroscopy and UV/Vis/NIR Spectroscopy instrumentation, as well as a complete suite of wet chemical apparatus.  The mobile laboratory is equipped to provide complete analysis to current specifications using specially adapted chemical techniques that have been fully validated under ESA contact.  The mobile laboratory can be deployed anywhere in the world and just requires power and water inputs to function.  Gases can either be provided on site or shipped with the mobile laboratory at the customers request.  

The EAL fixed facilities offer the opportunity to perform passivation of metallic surfaces in preparation for contact with live propellants, and temperature programmable incubators and equipment to allow compatibility testing of materials in contact with hazardous liquids.
