Optical Emission Spectrometry New OES Analyzer for Process Control and Research Metal Analysis
Spectro Analytical Instruments introduces a new arc/spark optical emission spectrometry analyzer for the analysis of metal in process control and research applications. A proprietary CMOS+T technology enables fast measurements, low limits of detection as well as long uptime.
Many users of high-end stationary metal analyzers are tasked with identifying and measuring - with exceptionally high accuracy and precision - all the elements and compounds in their incoming, in-production, and outgoing materials. This may also include research on new materials. The new Spectrolab S is designed to be a good performing spectrometer available for primary metal producers - as well as an option for secondary metal producers; automotive and aerospace manufacturers; and makers of finished and semi-finished goods, electronics, semiconductors, and other end products.
With the Spectrolab S, the company wants to meet the requirements of the metal market with regard to an exceptionally high measuring speed and sample throughput. From trace elements to multi-matrix applications, it provides high-speed, highly accurate analysis plus the lowest limits of detection in its class - limits previously attainable only with PMT detectors.
Spectrolab's regular maintenance intervention requirements (spark stand cleaning) could have been reduced by a factor of eight. Additionally the calibration is easy and cost-efficient, needing only a single-sample, 5-minute standardization so that users save at least 30 minutes a day.
Unlike conventional analyzers, its sealed, no-purge optical system maximizes light transmission stability, even in the far UV. Its software utilizes online drift correction and iCAL 2.0 temperature compensation for reproducible readings, even over successive shifts or maintenance intervals.
To fit packed laboratory spaces, the Spectrolab S features a 27% decrease in footprint over previous models. Conveniences include an easy-reach start/stop button and fixed function keys; a spark indicator light; noise minimization construction; and quick access for spark stand cleaning or tool-free air filter changes without opening the main instrument housing.
