Highest performing LIBS analysers

  • SciAps Z-900 series handheld LIBS analysers

    Key Features

    • Dual burn technology - Unique technology allows analysis in air or argon when higher precision is required
    • Improved design - Improved heat dissipation, new software and processing electronics
    • Ergonomic - Lightweight rugged design, excellent for prolonged in-field usage
    • Class 1 laser - Will only fire with a sample present
    • High power laser - mJ laser produces sperior results comapred to µJ lasers
    • Patented stack spectrometer design - Delivers wide wavelength range (190 - 950nm including H, F, Br, Cl, N, O, S, Rb, Cs and K)
ModelSpectrometer Range (nm)Elements MeasuredApplications
Z-901200 - 440Common elements for most applications including light elements Be, B. Excludes C, Li, NaAir-burn and argon purge for alloy analysis, mining and environmental, general analytical studies.
Z-901 CSi190 - 240C and SiDedicated to measuring C, Si in steels, stainless and (future) Ni alloys.
Z-902 Carbon190 - 440Elemental range of the Z-901 plus carbonTargets carbon measurements in alloys, plus other alloy bases. Includes a high resolution spectrometer measurement of carbon in alloys including L-grade stainless.
Z-902+190- 625Analysis of the Z-901 but extends spectral range to include Li, Na and C. Carbon is for non-alloy applicationsExtends analytical range to include Li in alloys, ores and brines, non-alloy measurement of C, and Na. Not for carbon in steels, stainless or other alloys.
Z-300190 - 950Above plus H, N, O, Cl, F, Br, Ce, Rb and SMostly for geochem, researchers, academic institutions, forensics or specific analytical applications. Measures emissions of every element through transuranics.

  • The SciAps Z-901 CSi

    This system is designed specifically for PMI applications and measuring Carbon and Silicon content. This makes it the ideal companion for hanheld XRF’s like the X-550 which can measure all the other alloy components, and then the Z-901 CSi can confirm carbon content and allow calculation of Carbon Equivalents (CE).

  • The SciAps Z-902 Carbon

    A demonstration of the new SciAps Z-902 Carbon, which makes an excellent addition to your existing handheld XRF providing data that it can’t.

    It also highlights new features of the Z-900 series such as slim design, dual cameras and other new design features such as the relocated argon cannister.

  • SciAps Cloud

    This new facility from SciAps allows you to securely upload your data from your handheld LIBS and XRF, streamlining the analysis process, effectively allowing the two systems to commmunicate with each other.
    By combining your data from both instruments you can do things like accurately determine low carbon grade stainless steel, carbon equivalents or residuals.
    It also has an automated report generation feature which will be very useful for field testing.

    An excellent feature available in SciAps cloud is a pass/fail capability making it ideal for quality control.

    There are also many features that allow several LIBS analysers to be monitored which suits multi site operations with instruments at each site.

  • One Box Solution for PMI

    The One Box solution pairs a SciAps HHXRF and a handheld LIBS device e.g. X-550 XRF with Z-901 CSi, with the XRF providing all the alloying elements and the LIBS providing the carbon content for identification of steels and determination of Carbon Equivalents (CE), with data all being processed using the SciAps Cloud solution.

    One Box can pair any XRF and LIBS device from the SciAps range dependng on your applications and desired pricepoint.

  • Dual-Burn Technology on the Z-901 Hendheld LIBS

    Demonstration of the analysis using QuickSort i.e. air burn, which produces results very quickly on a range of aluminium and nickel alloys.
    The Alloy app is used where higher levels of sensitivity and better LLOD are required and uses an argon purge.
