Could any one please provide the name of companies doing solder dross analysis. Is there any standard kits available to take sample from solder baths. Thanks in advance for your help.

In a previous life, we would send samples to our bar solder supplier and they would provide analysis. For contaminants, ICP (inductively coupled plasma) is a method we also used to determine composition. Google labs that have ICP capabilities.
