X-5-XRF Analyzer

The X-5 XRF with traditional XRF PiN technology generally does not measure lighter elements Mg, Si, Al, P, and S in alloys or other materials, and it acquires X-ray data at about 10x lower rates (so 3x less precision) than today’s state of the art drift detector technology. However, for many applications, this technique may be perfectly acceptable.For these users, we’ve re-engineered this classic detector technology and equipped it with more features for many applications at a great value.

X-50-XRF Analyzer

The “classic” model for many applications at a great value.

The X-50 features PiN diode technology, which is the previous generation detector prior to the advent of silicon drift detectors. The PiN technology processes a factor of 10x – 20x lower X-ray rates than the silicon drift detectors, and has resolution that is about 100 eV less (greater width). However for many applications such as basic sorting of stainless, high temp and copper alloys, or analyze base or heavy metals in soils, ores, powders, etc. the PiN technology is satisfactory. The X-50 will NOT measure Mg, Al or Si, and in some materials can measure P and S at the 1% level. Limits of detection will be 5x higher (elevated) compared to SDD versions of the X. However the X-50 features an attractive price point for the applications that work well. The X-50 includes the same advanced X-ray tube as other X models (operating at 40 kV max.), integrated camera, video, and the Android OS platform. The X-50 is available for alloy, environmental, mining/exploration, industrial and user-customizable applications. Analyzers may be factory calibrated with fundamental parameters, Compton Normalization (EPA Method 6200), or user defined empirical calibrations.

Z-901 LIBS Analyzer

The Z-901 features an all-new ergonomic design, a 0.5 lb. weight reduction down to about 3.5 lbs. (1.6 kg), improved heat dissipation, and completely updated software and processing electronics.

The Z-901 also leads the way featuring the first-ever “dual burn” technology. Users can test with the 901 either using an “air burn” method or using argon-purge for applications requiring higher precision and lower limits of detection.

The Z-901 uses a single spectrometer to cover the wavelength range of 200 – 440 nm. It is factory calibrated for a suite of 15-20 elements, depending on application.  Or operators may use the accompanying ProfileBuilder software package to customize to specific elements, their own calibration standards, and spectral processing.  The Z-901 can be setup to measure the emissions of any element EXCEPT Li, Na, H, C, N, O, Cl, Br, F, Ce, Rb, S. Common factory-calibrated applications include alloy, mining and environmental analysis, typically for beryllium in soil.

Analytical Range

General alloy testing for scrap sorting, PMI/NDT or quality assurance. Does not measure carbon.

Spectrometer/Range

200 nm – 420 nm

Z-901CSI_SIDE-VIEW-Transparent-1.png

Z-901-CSi LIBS Analyzer

The “CSi” is a dedicated unit for measuring carbon and silicon in steels and stainless.  It is the ideal tool if you own handheld XRF units and want to continue to use those for measuring common alloy elements such as Cr, V, Mn, Ni, Cu, Mo, Nb, etc.  but need the occasional carbon and/or silicon measurement.  The CSi opens up a very cost-effective option for many NDT professionals that have older XRF units and may only want to add in 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.

Analytical Range

Analyzes carbon and silicon only. The perfect complement to your XRF.

Spectrometer/Range

190 nm – 260 nm

Z-902-Carbon_SIDE-VIEW900PX.png

Z-902-C LIBS Analyzer

The Z-902 “C” is a dedicated NDT/PMI analyzer for carbon content and a wide range of alloys and alloy bases.  It features 2 spectrometers (instead of one in the 901) to extend the spectral range down to 190 nm with high resolution, specifically to measure carbon content in steels, stainless and other alloys.  The Z-902 is the analyzer of choice globally for the measuring carbon content in alloys, and carbon equivalents.  It is also factory calibrated for a suite of 15-20 elements in 7 common alloy bases: aluminum, steel, stainless, nickel, cobalt, titanium and copper bases.  Additional bases or calibrations may be added by the factory or the user.

Analytical Range

Ideal 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.

Spectrometer/Range

190 nm – 440 nm

Z-903-LIBZ-900px.png

Z-903 LIBS Analyzer

The Z-903 accomplishes what no other portable analyzer has done. It’s a handheld analyzer that measures every element in the periodic table of the elements – from H to U. It uses the same powerful laser as SciAps other Z-900 models, but with an extended spectrometer range from 190 nm out to 950 nm. The extended range allows emission lines from elements H, F, N, O, Br, Cl, Rb, Cs and S to be measured. These lines cannot be measured with the other Z-900 series analyzers. There are other benefits to the extended range. For example, it measures a more sensitive line for lithium near 675 nm to achieve limits of detection in the 2-5 ppm range. It also measures a more sensitive, and interference-free line for potassium (K). The more traditional potassium lines have heavy iron interference, whereas the line used by the Z-903 is free of such interference.

 

 

Analytical Range

Measures every element in the periodic table. Measures carbon in geochemical samples and total organic carbon (TOC). Not for carbon in steel or stainless alloys.

Spectrometer/Range

190 nm – 625 nm

Z-200 C+ LIBS Analyzer

The world’s only handheld analyzer that delivers carbon content in stainless, steels and cast irons…yes even L-grades.

The Z-200 C+ is a dedicated analyzer for alloy analysis including carbon content. It analyzes carbon content in stainless, down to 0.007 ppm, for dependable separation of L and H grades. The C+ also analyzes carbon steels, including carbon equivalents (CE) for weldability. The analyzer is available in two versions. The Z-200 C comes with iron-base calibrations including carbon. The Z-200 C+ includes both iron and stainless bases and carbon. Additional bases may be added at time of purchase or any later date. Following in the tradition of our defy obsolescence principle, any Z-200 or Z-200 C may be upgraded to the Z-200 C+ at any time for the price difference.

The Z uses the technique laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS), which has many similarities to spark OES. LIBS has been an established laboratory technique for 20+ years. It fires a pulsed laser at the material to create a plasma, instead of a continuous electric spark like spark OES. Light from the plasma is measured with an on-board spectrometer to determine individual wavelengths and thus what elements are present. The elemental content is quantified via onboard calibrations.

High resolution is critical. The Z-200 C+ is equipped with a dedicated third spectrometer optimized for the best wavelength resolution around the carbon line. Due to the many nearby iron lines, resolution better than 0.080 nm is a must. Powerful laser – onboard argon purge – high resolution spectrometer. It’s the key to rock solid, in-field carbon analysis for alloys.

Z-300 LIBS Analyzer

Every Element in the Periodic Table, in Seconds, in a Handheld

The Z-300 accomplishes what no other portable analyzer has done. It’s a handheld analyzer that measures every element in the periodic table of the elements – from H to U. The Z-300 uses the same laser as the Z-200, but with an extended spectrometer range from 190 nm out to 950 nm. The extended range allows emission lines from elements H, F, N, O, Br, Cl, Rb, Cs and S to be measured. These lines cannot be measured with the Z-200. The Z-300 also measures a more sensitive line for lithium to achieve limits of detection in the 2-5 ppm range. The Z-300 also measures a more sensitive, and interference-free line for potassium (K). The more traditional potassium lines have heavy iron interference, whereas the line used by the Z-300 is free of such interference. The Z is most widely used for mineral exploration including lithium in both hard rock and brines. It is also used in the forensics, authentication, archeology, oil/gas exploration areas due to the wide elemental range. Like the Z-200, the laser strike pattern, cleaning shots, spectrometer settings are all under user control. The analyzer includes advanced software for modifying all settings, comparing spectral data, and for generating quantitative calibration curves. The Z-300 features the same Android OS and intuitive App-driven software as all other SciAps models.
