Mobile Metal Analyzers
Robust and rugged design, best-of-class analytical performance and intuitive operation
Mobile metal analyzers have been used for over 30 years to conduct metal analysis onsite. The rapid development in instrument technology has led to significant advances in the application possibilities. As a technology leader, SPECTRO has markedly shaped and formed this development from the start. As the worldwide market leader in this area, SPECTRO is today the only company to offer a complete range of metal analyzer products – from handheld XRF to arc spark OES spectrometers – for the many different tasks in onsite metal analysis.
The SPECTROTEST is a mobile arc spark spectrometer ideal for many applications in the metal producing, processing, and recycling industries. This mobile metal analyzer flaunts its superior performance especially when exact metal analysis is required, when materials are difficult to identify or when there is a large number of samples to be tested.
he complex arc spark spectrometer design offers many ergonomic advantages for safe and fatigue-free onsite operation. The light, thin probe is quickly converted between arc excitation and spark excitation (arc spark OES). A probe with an integrated UV optic is available for special measuring applications; in its newest version it can also be utilized with arc excitation.
When handhelds aren’t enough, the amazing new SPECTROPORT portable metal analyzer applies more advanced OES technology — in a unit as easy to use as a handheld analyzer. SPECTROPORT delivers many advantages of SPECTRO’s portable OES flagship, SPECTROTEST, in a smaller, lighter package. It accurately analyzes elements such as carbon, sulfur, phosphorus, and boron. It’s as fast as an XRF, with many analyses taking only a few seconds.
The hand-held metal analyzer SPECTRO iSORT is battery-powered, for fast, easy on-site identification and analysis of all common metal alloys. It uses an efficient arc excitation and requires neither argon nor a radioactive source. The new hand-held metal analyzer can conduct several hundred measurements utilizing the instrument’s integrated rechargeable battery. The SPECTRO iSORT metal analyzer can be used for material testing in production, component identification in chemical and petrochemical plants, material failure analysis, weld seam analysis, and the rapid determination of metal alloys when buying, selling or blending scrap metal.
Stationary Metal Analyzers
To meet the divergent needs of industry
SPECTRO offers advanced optical emission spectroscopy metal analyzers with arc and spark excitation (arc spark OES)
Optical emission spectroscopy using arc and spark excitation (Arc Spark OES) is the preferred method for trace metal analysis to determine the chemical composition of metallic samples. This process is widely used in the metal making industries, including primary producers, foundries, die casters and manufacturing. Due to its rapid analysis time and inherent accuracy, arc spark optical emission spectroscopy systems are most effective in controlling the processing of alloys. Arc spark spectrometers can be used for many aspects of the production cycle including in-coming inspection of materials, metal processing, quality control of semi-finished and finished goods and many other applications where a chemical composition of the metallic material is required.
The new generation of SPECTROLAB OES analyzers delivers the greatest innovation in elemental analysis yet. Stability, flexibility, and analytical functionality combine in a high performance package that is in a class of its own. Available in hybrid PMT/CCD and breakthrough new all-CCD versions, this analyzer sets a new standard for R&D and process/quality control.
The SPECTROMAXx stationary metal analyzer is used mainly for material testing in foundries and for incoming and outgoing inspections in the metal industry around the world. It determines all of the elements used in the metal industry, including metal analysis of carbon, phosphorous, sulfur and nitrogen.
The SPECTROCHECK stationary metal analyzer is specifically designed to meet the performance requirements — and the budgets — of small and medium-size foundries and machining operations. This high-quality, compact, affordable instrument is ideal for routine analysis of elemental content in iron-, aluminum-, and copper-based metals.
