Mobile Metal Analyzer

SPECTRO Analytical Instruments has announced an upgrade to its SPECTROTEST arc/spark mobile metal analyzer for applications in the metal producing, processing and recycling industries.

The SPECTROTEST mobile spectrometer is designed to deliver precise results when an exact metal analysis is required, materials are difficult to identify, or there is a large number of samples to be tested. Applications include the on-site grade confirmation of incoming materials at the shipping dock or on the production floor, or when metal sorting for value-optimized recycling.

"The upgrade, which introduces a new, more advanced readout system, represents an improvement to an already existing solution. The new readout is a prerequisite for the introduction of iCAL 2.0 - a consistent enhancement of the instrument's proprietary iCAL calibration logic system. iCAL 2.0 enables the mobile analyzer to deliver enhanced stability, even in the face of ambient temperature changes," said a company spokesperson.

With pre-defined calibration packages and the iCAL 2.0 diagnostics software, the upgraded SPECTROTEST allows users to perform a single-sample standardization (in less than 5 minutes) at the start of the day's testing. The iCAL diagnostics can provide stable performance through a typical day, and, now the software helps maintain the same standardization, regardless of most temperature shifts.

The SPECTROTEST analyzer is designed for productivity and reliability as well as portability. "The analyzer's high-resolution optical system provides for a wide element range, including N, Li, Na - all elements necessary for a complete on-the-spot metal analysis," said the spokesperson.

"Its measurements are fast with flexible, point-and-shoot analysis," added the spokesperson. Sample probe adapters are quick and easy to change for arc excitation and spark excitation (arc spark OES). Its battery-powered operation can deliver up to 800 measurements on a single charge. An app enables the display of the measuring screen on a PC monitor, tablet or smartphone. Results can be simultaneously observed in the laboratory and on-site.

Global service and support for the upgraded SPECTROTEST are provided through the AMECARE Performance Services program. AMECARE's customized services include proactive maintenance programs, application solutions, access to specialists and instrument-specific training.
