High-End Spectrometer With Hybrid Optic Offers Highest Precision In Metal Analysis

Oct 06 2011

Spectro Analytical Instruments unveiled the updated version of its SPECTROLAB metal analyser at the GIFA foundry trade show. The latest version of the versatile metal analyser incorporates a number of improvements, and, in several instances, achieves better detection limits than its predecessor version. “Since our introduction of the first SPECTROLAB equipped with a hybrid optic in 2007, we’ve seen enormous interest in this technology everywhere,” commented Kay Toedter, Product Manager for Stationary Metal Analysers for Spectro. “For many users, the combination of the two detector technologies opens new possibilities for improvements in laboratory analytical performance.”

“This latest SPECTROLAB offers the advantages of photomultiplier detectors relative to single spark evaluation and time-resolved spectroscopy along with the flexible line selection and ability to combine analytical and reference lines from charge-coupled device detectors. By combining all of these advantages, the SPECTROLAB analyser delivers the lowest detection limits with a previously unattainable stability and repeatability of measurement results,” he added.

Optimised excitation parameters and an innovative readout system enable permanent enhancements for lead analysis with a focus on battery technology or in the analysis of precious metals, for example. Even during automotive and aerospace materials testing, the new SPECTROLAB analyser displays its unique strengths. In redesigning the SPECTROLAB stationary metal analyser, Spectro placed special emphasis on ease of operation and reduced operating costs. With those considerations in mind, Spectro placed components that could require maintenance in easily accessible locations. An extended diagnosis and log file system also assist users in monitoring the instrument’s status and in performing accurate trouble shooting, helping to lengthen maintenance intervals and shorten repair times. As a high-end optical emission spectrometer, the SPECTROLAB analyser addresses needs of metal producers and processing companies as well as those of the automotive and aviation industries. The versatile instrument is especially well suited for use in quality management applications and for material analysis for incoming and outgoing controls.
