SPECTRO SPECTROLAB S OES analyser for metal analysis
SPECTRO Analytical Instruments introduces the SPECTROLAB S high-performance arc/spark optical emission spectrometry (OES) analyser for the analysis of metal in process control and research applications. It is useful for primary metal producers; secondary metal producers; automotive and aerospace manufacturers; and makers of finished and semifinished goods, electronics, semiconductors and other end products.
Featuring PECTRO’s CMOS+T technology, the product provides high-speed analysis for everything from trace elements to multi-matrix applications; when analysing low-alloy steel, for example, it can deliver measurements in less than 20 s. It is claimed to have the lowest detection limits in its class — limits previously attainable only with PMT detectors — and to surpass PMT performance on some key elements.
Calibration is easy, needing only a single-sample, 5 min standardisation. In most cases, iCAL 2.0 diagnostics ensure stable performance from then on, regardless of shifts in ambient temperature or pressure. SPECTROLAB’s regular maintenance intervention requirements are said to be reduced by a factor of eight.
The company’s intuitive user interface offers ease of use even for inexperienced personnel. Instead of multiple dialog boxes, a simplified operator view presents clear choices via dedicated toolbar buttons. Tailored application profiles eliminate complicated method development. The analyser is also flexible and futureproof, as more elements or matrices can be added via a simple software update.
The product’s sealed, no-purge optical system maximises light transmission stability, even in the far UV. Its software utilises sophisticated measures such as 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 device features a 27% decrease in footprint over previous models.
