ElectrolyteStaining Unit 6

Sample Staining Unit for Crimp Cross-Section Analysis


The ESU 6 ElectrolyteStaining Unit is a component of the MicroGraph System for the creation of high quality cross-sectional images of crimp connections and others.

  • Very simple handling
  • Efficient and quick cleaning
  • Cleaning directly under the optics possible
  • No waiting time
  • Environmentally-friendly

Application Range

With the MicroGraph System (MGS), crimp cross-sectional images can be created in a fraction of the time compared to conventional methods. The system includes modular components that can be combined according to individual needs. The ElectrolyteStaining Unit (ESU) allows the user to quickly and safely stain a pre-cut cross section sample for further analysis.

The sample is stained using an innovative electrolytic staining process using a solution with a Ph level the same as water. Therefore, it is very safe to handle without any of the special equipment or training required with acids. A built-in staining indicator glows depending on the strength of the staining process, thereby giving the operator instant feedback on the effectiveness of the process. Multiple staining pen sizes are available depending on the sample size.

The ESU 6 can be used on a range of applications from crimp cross-sections to welded samples.
