Why the CSi?

 

Many operators own one or more XRFs for PMI/NDT. It’s their preferred tool for high temp alloys, and for elements contributing to carbon equivalents (CE), residuals, and stainless steel grades: V, Mn, Cr, Ni, Cu, Nb, Mo. However, XRF does not measure carbon and therefore no carbon equivalents, no separation of L- and H-grade stainless, nor can you use the more forgiving low RE formula (Ni + Cu) < 0.15%. The CSi is the perfect tool for operators who own XRF and need the occasional carbon measurement. It delivers fast, reliable carbon results to complement XRF tests, at a lower cost than the full LIBS system for carbon plus alloys. And SciAps cloud-driven data merging and report generation bring it all together in one report.

The CSi shows multiple carbon and silicon measurements, and the average. Meets multi-test averaging protocols required by some refineries and pipeline operators.

SciAps breakthrough LIBS technology is now widely accepted for carbon testing.

It’s included in API 578 2nd Edition, it’s accepted at most every major refinery, and in use worldwide by fabricators, pipeline owner/operators, power plants and other users of carbon steels and L- and H-grade stainless.

Ultra compact:  3.87 lbs. (1.75 kg)

The CSi rivals the size and weight of most handheld XRF units. It’s the world’s smallest, lightest weight, sleekest analyzer for carbon analysis in alloys. Download the full specifications.

Cloud-based integration of XRF and CSi data

Two analyzers means twice the reporting hassle, right? No. SciAps offers a cloud-based data merge and reporting tool so you can quickly merge CSi and XRF data to produce reports combining carbon and silicon from the LIBS with metals analysis from the XRF. Are you using a different XRF brand? No problem – ask your supplier for the data structure of their data export and we’ll incorporate it into our SciAps Cloud package. The data structure generally follows an industry standard and doesn’t involve proprietary software.

Z-900 Series LIBS Analyzers

ModelRangeBest Application
Z-901200 – 420 nmGeneral alloy testing for scrap sorting, PMI/NDT or quality assurance. Does not measure carbon.
Z-902210 – 625 nmSame as 901 except spectral range extended to include lithium for users that must measure Li in aluminum or other alloys.
Z-902 Carbon190 – 440 nmIdeal for carbon analysis in steel and L, H-grade stainless and nickel alloys. Also measures general alloy elements and carbon equivalents, residuals. Does NOT measure Li.
Z-901 CSi190 – 260 nmAnalyzes carbon and silicon only. The perfect complement to your XRF.
Z-903190 – 950 nmMeasures every element in the periodic table. Measures carbon in geochemical samples and total organic carbon (TOC). Not for carbon in steel or stainless alloys.
Z-903 Carbon190 – 625 nmSame as 902 Carbon, except spectral range is extended to measure Li in alloys.
Z-901 Beryllium210 – 440 nmPurpose built for beryllium measurements, generally paired with XRF to cover all 13 EPA Priority Pollutant elements. Handheld XRF cannot measure Be.
Z-901 Lithium480 – 690 nmPurpose built for lithium in soils, rocks and brines.
Z-901 Fluorine600 – 720 nmPurpose built for fluorine analysis for PFAS in various materials. Note: uses helium purge rather than argon purge.
Factory calibrations do not include every element, but are provided for a set 15-20 elements depending on the application. Elements exclude unstable and radioactive elements. Detection limits vary greatly by element and sample type.
