Carbon and CE in steels and stainless, for welds and materials, flow-accelerated corrosion (FAC), and general alloy identification
SciAps introduced the world’s first handheld LIBS to be a “full service” power industry analyzer, and it’s now in use globally. The laser-based Z-902 Carbon is a dedicated NDT/PMI analyzer for carbon content in a wide range of alloys and alloy bases – no X-rays means no licensing or regulatory burdens.
For those who prefer to lead their analysis with XRF, SciAps X-550 sets the new performance standard for alloy and weld chemistry and grade verification, and FAC as well. And you can have carbon, too. SciAps “CSi” LIBS is especially sensitive to measuring carbon and silicon in steels and stainless, perfect for busy XRF users.
Z-902 Carbon: Two spectrometers extend the spectral range down to 190 nm with high resolution, specifically to measure carbon content in steels, stainless and other alloys. This is the analyzer of choice globally for measuring carbon content in alloys, and carbon equivalents. It’s also factory calibrated for a suite of 15-20 elements in seven common alloy bases: aluminum, steel, stainless, nickel, cobalt, titanium, and copper. Additional bases or calibrations may be added by the factory or the user. Read the Specifications.
X-550: The new performance standard for handheld XRF is fast on all alloys and it comes with specialty apps for NDT (Residuals, Sulfidic Corrosion, Alloy). The X-550 uses the industry’s most powerful X-ray tube, operating up to 3x the power in the Beam 2 setting compared to any other handheld XRF analyzers. The unique geometry and tube power optimize performance for low atomic number measurement applications including sulfidic corrosion, as well as for residuals analysis per API 751 and 5L.

Z-901 CSi: With one spectrometer enhanced for measuring carbon and silicon in steels and stainless, CSi opens up a very cost-effective option for many NDT/PMI professionals who rely on XRF units but may want to add C and Si measurements in order to determine carbon equivalents (CE), verify L versus H-grade stainless, or include a carbon measurement with low RE steels.

SciAps advantage: One-click apps
As with any LIBS or XRF, there are critical applications that require adjusting the instrument beyond the standard configurations. SciAps specialty apps for NDT/PMI take an extra capable instrument and configure the results in the convenient way that you need to see them. Switch to the app with a one-button press, and it’s done.
Durability, connectivity, and Android
Developed on Google’s Android platform, the smallest, lightest, fastest instruments on the market make testing a breeze. A streamlined, contemporary user interface is easily viewed on a vibrant display with reversible light/dark for all lighting conditions. Built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and USB mean that users can print, email, and connect to virtually any information management system for efficient test data and reports. And with SciAps, you get a durable analyzer that keeps working—even after a real-life 35-foot drop test or 275 lb. smash test—and can be repaired to good-as-new condition for a fraction of the cost.
