Abstract : Three state-of-the-art analytical techniques have been selected and used successfully to analyze turbine engine gas path cleaners (cleaning compounds) for their metallic content. Sodium, potassium, cobalt, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, lead and silicon have been determined by the atomic absorption (AA) method. Inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES) has been used to determine sulfur and phosphorus. Chloride as a total halogen content has been determined by microcoulometric titration (MCT) method.
