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).
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.
