Alloy Analysis

SciAps offers the only LIBS-based alloy analyzer operable in a “dual burn” test setup. Just choose your app.

Alloy: Argon-purge for high precision and improved detection limits. Many customers use argon-purge to analyze and sell mill-ready aluminum scrap. Quantify low ppm levels of beryllium and boron. QuickSort: Air-burn for rapid material sorting or grade identification.

The Z-901 for alloy analysis measures 15-20 elements in 7 common alloy bases, including aluminum, stainless, iron, copper, titanium, nickel and cobalt bases. Other bases may be added for a small fee, or users may add their own calibrations.

Need to measure lithium in alloys? Use Z-902, with extended range to 625 nm to measure Li emission.

Need to measure carbon in steels and stainless—including verifying L- and H-grade stainless? Use SciAps Z-902 C, in use globally for measuring carbon and other elements in steels, stainless and nickel alloys.

Already own handheld XRF—and only need to add carbon measurements? Use Z-901 CSi, the ultra-compact analyzer that measures C and Si in steels, stainless.

Mining, Exploration, and Environmental Applications

LIBS complements handheld XRF because it is especially good at measuring low atomic number elements—including those too light for handheld XRF.

Lithium in ores and brines.
Light elements in soils and ores, full suite including Li, Be, B, C, F and Na.
Total organic carbon in agricultural applications.
Beryllium in soil or other materials as an environmental contaminant.

More Applications

Forensics, Quality Control, Research, Education

The Z-900 Series features our desktop/tablet ProfileBuilder software package to add elements, create calibrations and apply advanced spectral processing.

Develop test methods for unique analytical or quality control needs.
Academic tool for researchers and students alike. LIBS does not require X-ray radiation or its accompanying regulations.
For forensics, small spot analysis (100 um) and ProfileBuilder software yield a powerful, highly versatile field analytical technique.

Z-900 Series LIBS Analyzers

ModelSpectrometersRangeElements Analyzed
Z-9011 spectrometer200 – 420 nmFactory calibrated with suites of 15-20 elements, app dependent. For some elements, model 902 or 903 is required.
Z-901 CSi1 spectrometer190 – 240 nmAnalyzes carbon and silicon only. The perfect complement to your XRF.
Z-9022 spectrometer190 – 625 nmAdds emissions for Li, Na
Z-9033 spectrometer190 – 950 nmAdds emissions for H, F, N, O, Br, Cl, Rb, Cs and S

Please note:

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.
