EGA laboratory excels against industry peers

ABU DHABI, January 19, 2015

The Dubal Technical Laboratory of Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) was recently ranked among the top participants worldwide for accuracy in both the raw material and quantometer sections.

The laboratory has maintained excellent standards in Round Robin testing of anode cores, petroleum coke, coal tar pitch, aluminium metal, alumina and aluminium fluoride, a statement said, highlighting that in the most recent Round Robin cycle for Pitch analysis, conducted in 2014, nine different samples were tested for chemical and physical impurities.

With regard to proficiency testing of aluminium metal, the Dubal Technical Laboratory ranks in the top three worldwide. The laboratory’s capabilities were also tested by a leading motor manufacturer before agreeing to any orders for Dubal metal. In this instance, the Quantometer laboratory was given unknown samples as part of uncertainty testing over a one-year period, according to the statement.

EGA is a jointly-held, equal-ownership company formed by Mubadala Development Company of Abu Dhabi and the Investment Corporation of Dubai by combining their respective aluminium industry interests. – TradeArabia News Service
