Morita Chemical Industries Co.,Ltd.


Analysis Service

Hydrofluoric acid maker Morita Chemical Industries range of analytical services

We handle preprocessing of minerals, ores, organic matter, silicates, and other substances that are usually difficult to decompose.
With our wide range of instrumentation, we also offer evaluations from ultra-low-level trace metal analysis to composition break downs.

  • Hydrofluoric acid (aqueous HF) is a powerful acid!

    • Hydrofluoric acid is the only acid that dissolves silica (SiO2)
    • A most useful pretreatment agent capable of dissolving almost any metal.
  • Hydrofluoric acid (aqueous HF) is difficult to handle!

    • Normal glass vessels cannot be used.
    • Highly toxic, this reagent requires the utmost care.
  • Hydrofluoric acid (aqueous HF) requires waste processing facilities!

    • Owing to extreme toxicity, waste liquids have to be treated. Morita Chemical Industries has a full suite of waste treatment facilities.
  • Rapid delivery straight from the product maker!

    • Possessing instrumentation used for our own production analysis, Morita rapidly provides analytical results.

Analysis service based on a century of experience

1. Pretreatment of substances that are usually difficult to decompose

Using the strong solvent action of hydrofluoric acid (aqueous HF), pretreatment is carried out safely.

2. From ultra-low-level trace metal analysis to composition break downs, broad range of evaluation

Applying technology accumulated from our own fluorine compound analysis we provide state-of-the-art analytical instrumentation.
For example, using ICP-MS equipment installed in a clean room, we can measure trace metals in hydrofluoric acid (HF) down to ppt level.
