Control 2017 Easy to use metal analyser
Spectro Analytical Instruments introduces at Control 2017 the Spectroport portable Arc/Spark Optical Emission Spectrometry (OES) metals analyser that delivers advanced OES technology in a unit that is as easy to use as a handheld analyser.
According to the company, Spectroport delivers many advantages of Spectro’s flagship mobile Spectrotest OES analyser in a smaller, lighter unit featuring effortless point-and-shoot performance — for fast, ready response; flexible portability; intuitive ease of use; and minimal standardisation efforts.
Spectroport is as fast as a handheld XRF, with many analyses taking only a few seconds, Spectro says. But unlike handheld XRF, it accurately analyses elements such as carbon, sulfur, phosphorus, boron, lithium, beryllium, calcium, silicon, magnesium, and aluminum at low and critical levels. Its new optical system covers a wide range of elemental wavelengths, displaying excellent precision, stability, and robustness without additional heating.
Spectroport offers flexible options to maximise mobility, including large and small transport trolleys plus portable batteries. For testing in difficult-to-reach places — such as analysis of installed or small parts, thin wires, curved surfaces, or concealed welding seams, or for infrastructure control tasks — Spectroport can be used cordlessly with a rechargeable battery pack.
Moreover, the need for repeated calibrations and their resulting delays are eliminated with predefined calibration packages and the Spectro-exclusive iCAL 2.0 calibration logic system — which also helps maintain the same standardisation regardless of most temperature shifts.
According to the company, Spectroport is surprisingly affordable, features a continued low cost of ownership, and delivers all the reliability of Spectro, a leader in metals analysis, with more than 40,000 spectrometers worldwide.
