Metal Analyzer Enables Trace Analysis of Copper and Aluminum

Spectro Analytical Instruments announces an updated version of its SpectroLab metal analyzer, which incorporates a number of improvements. In several instances, it achieves better detection limits than its predecessor version, such as trace analysis of pure copper and aluminum. It offers the advantages of photomultiplier detectors relative to single spark evaluation and time-resolved spectroscopy along with the flexible line selection and ability to combine analytical and reference lines from charge-coupled device detectors. By combining all of these advantages, the analyzer delivers the lowest detection limits with a previously unattainable stability and repeatability of measurement results.

Optimized excitation parameters and an innovative readout system enable permanent enhancements for lead analysis with a focus on battery technology or in the analysis of precious metals, for example. It is able to analyze aluminum,...
