Metal Analyzers

    INTRODUCING THE NEW CHEMLITE™ PLUS LASER METALS ANALYZER

    The ChemLite™ Plus Metals Analyzer Model 4240 incorporates new, high-performance hardware for measuring aluminum, magnesium, titanium, iron, copper and nickel; faster measurements in as little as 1 second; and higher sensitivity and more accurate readings with improved limits of detection with the same great features as our original instrument.  The best in laser metals analysis just got better!

    FEATURES AND BENEFITS OF CHEMLITE™ LASER ANALYZERS

    Ergonomically designed, industrially-hardened, and inherently safe (no eye-hazardous lasers or X-rays), the patented ChemLite™ Laser Analyzers are a revolution in handheld metals analysis. Based on laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS), they are able to identify base metals and alloying elements accurately in as little as 1 second with point-and-shoot convenience and detection limits as low as 0.01%. ChemLite analyzers boast the following additional features: 

    Superior Performance 

      superior perfomance

    The ChemLite Metal Analyzers offer unmatched quantification with low limits of detection, down to 0.001%, for better distinction of close alloys and confident identification of specific alloys. Quickly and accurately measure alloying elements, like Si, Mg, Li,in non-ferrous metals and Aluminum alloys. Easily separate AA6061 vs. AA6063, AA7050 vs. AA 7075, and AA2014 vs. AA2024. Quantify Al in Ti 6-4.  With high accuracy and high precision, trust ChemLite analyzers to provide you with the right analysis.

    • Typical errors of <10%>
    • Typical precision of <10%>
    • Detects lithium in aluminum at 0.0001% or 1ppm
    • Detects beryllium in aluminum at 0.0001% or 1ppm
    • Detects beryllium in copper at 0.001% or 10ppm

    REGULATION-FREE, Class 1M, EYE-SAFE LASER PRODUCT

    laser 

    Our patented ChemLite Laser Analyzers are Class 1M laser devices that are considered safe for all uses, including analysis of small and irregular pieces and turnings, without additional safety precautions. 

    • No protective eyewear.
    • No Laser Safety Officer (LSO) 
    • No special training 
    • No annual regulatory expenses 
    • No liability 

    Note that other LIBS devices that use a 1064 nm laser are Class 3B laser products and considered inherently hazardous and require the safety precautions highlighted above.

    ARGON FREE

      argon  free 

    ChemLite analyzers maintain sensitive analysis of metals without the need for argon purge gas.  The absence of consumable argon gas cylinders from the ChemLite analyzers design is a result of superior hardware and years of LIBS engineering invested into developing a high-performance, argon-free LIBS engine. Ultimately, without argon, ChemLite analyzers still show the most precise aluminum and light metal alloy identification with the lowest limits of detection for a LIBS analyzer.  

    • No explosive hazard
    • No consumable costs
    • No mechanical failures
    • No downtime changing Argon
    • No inventory costs storing Argon
    • No logistics issues ordering Argon
     

    ADVANCED USER INTERFACE

    GUI

    ChemLite analyzers boasts a 5" color touchscreen, the largest of any handheld LIBS device, making detailed data available at a glance, including top ten alloy match list and graphical comparison to alloy definitions. See all of your alloying elements of interest on one screen, in legible font  sizes, without the need to swipe or scroll.  Obtain fast metals ID and analysis for light metals and alloying elements with the quickness and ease of a point-and-shoot device and the familiarity of a smartphone.

    •  5” Display lets you see more legible information at one time

    BUILT-IN CLEANING MODE

      plasma(1)

    ChemLite Laser Analyzers features  built-in cleaning mode that burns away contamination on “dirty” samples to ensure accurate measurements. 

    •  Pre-burns are part of every measurement

    LARGEST SPOT SIZE

    spot size                

    ChemLite analyzers have the largest spot size of any handheld LIBS device. At 200µm, compared to 50µm instruments, this means a 16-times larger sampling area.  This larger sampling area provides a more representative, precise measurement, and eliminates the need for complex rastering. Our analyzers have no moving parts, optical or otherwise, that may make other handheld LIBS instruments prone to mechanical failures.

    • No rastering needed
    • No moving parts

    NEW Fe-CALIBRATION IN Al-BASE

    Fe in Al GRAPH                

    ChemLite analyzers now feature an improved Fe-calibration in Al-base.

    • Measure Fe in Al down to 0.01%
    • Obtain high accuracy Fe readings for both Al scrap valuations and for QC of engineered Al products
    • Still no argon required
