JASPER® Uses LECO Mass Spectrometer to Analyze Metal Composition


JASPER may surpass excellence in the never-ending quest to produce The Perfect Product. One of the ways we do that is through the use of cutting-edge technology, such as this LECO Mass Spectrometer. It’s used to measure the chemical compositions of different metal alloys within the components we use in remanufacturing. 


“We use it to help us reverse-engineer different parts,” said JASPER Product Design Engineer Noah Fritchley. “We also use it to hold our vendors accountablefor supplying us good parts.” 


The mass spectrometer works by burning a sample from a metal-alloy component. The machine evaluates the ions coming off that burn, telling us the chemical composition of that alloy. “That would include, in a simple way of putting it, it tells us what the ingredients are for a cake mixture,” said Fritchley. “It doesn’t tell us necessarily how that cake was baked, but it does tell us what the ingredients are.” 


Using a mass spectrometer helps JASPER improve quality and reduces the risk of substandard parts getting to the customer. “With all the global supply chain issues that we’ve seen, we have seen vendors changing materials in our parts,” Fritchley added. “This is one machine to help further reduce the risk of inferior parts getting to our customer.” If you’d like to learn more about the remanufactured products here at Jasper Engines & Transmissions, contact us at 800.827.7455 or www.jasperengines.com.
