Metal Casting Technologies : March 2011
hether metal, plastic or organic material, a solid, powder or solution, with its unique product range of mobile and stationary metal analyzers, ICP and ICP- MS spectrometers as well as and X-ray fluorescence spectrometers, SPECTRO offers the optimum solution for any application. The smallest system barely weighs one kilogram while the largest fills a whole laboratory. All systems, however, are based on the most innovative technology, strictly geared towards specific user requirements, optimum configuration for the respective task and the worldwide recognized reliability that has made SPECTRO the leading supplier in the field of elemental analysis. Mobile Metal Analyzers - MMA Scrap sorting of production materials, identification of semi-finished products during processing and material testing of finished products are just some of the typical applications for SPECTRO portable and mobile metal analyzers. The applications are manifold: Pipes, forged parts, rods, valves, welds, containers and many other sample types can be tested both easily and effectively. Whether in production workshops, external stores, in places difficult to access or on components already mounted in industrial installations, the mobility of SPECTRO industrial spectrometers knows no limits. The range of SPECTRO portable and mobile metal analyzers extends from the small hand-held spectrometer weighting only one kilogram through to multi-matrix devices with on-site analysis performance features that are otherwise the realm of pure laboratory instruments. Stationary Metal Analyzers - SMA Stationary metal analyzers from SPECTRO are used wherever precision analysis of the chemical composition of metallic materials is required. In all sectors of the metal producing and processing industry these analyzers control the alloying processes, monitor metal quality and rule out the use of incorrect materials and consequently the resulting production downtimes and safety risks. XRF Spectrometers Energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence analysis technology is one of the simplest yet most efficient and economical analysis methods. With SPECTRO's polarization technology it is also one of the most versatile and precise methods. Whether dealing with waste at an incinerator, raw materials in incoming goods inspection, petrochemical, chemical and pharmaceutical intermediate and finished products in manufacturing processes, soils in nature conservation or rocks in geology -- SPECTRO X-ray fluorescence spectrometers are suitable for many thousands of applications. ICP Spectrometers The ICP spectrometers from SPECTRO are characterized by excellent measurement accuracy, maximum sensitivity and a high degree of flexibility. They are predestined for trace and ultra- trace analysis of solutions in environmental applications, for comprehensive analysis of foodstuffs, petrochemical products and for the monitoring of innumerable manufacturing processes in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry. ICP-Mass Spectrometers The SPECTRO MS is the first fully simultaneous measuring mass spectrometer with inductively coupled plasma in the world and offers a greatly increased sample throughput rate and much better precision and accuracy compared to sequential mass spectrometers. In addition to research laboratories, it is attractive for environmental, chemical, pharmaceutical and geology laboratories as well as many other branches of industry.
