Bruker EOS 500 Handheld LIBS for sale
Bruker’s new EOS 500 is a handheld Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (HH-LIBS) system. The EOS 500 is based on laser excitation of a metal sample followed by quantitative analysis of the light generated in the plume. This technology provides quick (3-5 sec) analysis of alloys including aluminum/titanium/magnesium alloys.?
The EOS is especially well suited to scrap sorting of these alloys because of its quick and user friendly operation. In addition to the normal XRF elements, the EOS is capable of measuring very light elements such as Li, Be and B; as well as laser fast analysis of Mg, Al, Si.
HH-LIBS and HH-XRF
Physics indicates that HH-LIBS and HH-XRF are naturally complementary and each technique is preferred to measure certain elements and certain types of alloys. HH-LIBS is well suited to rapidly measuring the low atomic number elements like the alkaline (Li, Na, etc.) and alkaline-earth metals (Be, Mg, etc.) but are not well suited to measuring high atomic number elements such as the refractory elements (Nb, Mo, W, etc.). HH-XRF on the other hand, is well suited to measuring high atomic number elements but not well suited at measuring low atomic number elements like Mg, Al, Si. This makes HH-LIBS the ideal technique for measuring light alloys such as Mg, Al and Ti alloys while HH-XRF is the ideal technique for measuring standard alloys like stainless steel, high temperature alloys and the like. Now is your chance; choose the right tool for the job!
Bruker EOS 500 Handheld
Fast, Lightweight & Analyzes Light Elements
The EOS 500 is well suited for use in scrap sorting of alloys because of its lightweight (2.4 kg including battery), fast analysis and ease of operation. In addition to the standard XRF elements, the EOS 500 can analyze very light elements such as Li, Be and B, and is the preferred analyzer for measuring elements such as Mg, Al, Si. For light element analysis with the EOS 500, it is approximately 10x faster than XRF, easily saving you time and money. Optional calibrations are available for Iron, Nickel, Copper and Cobalt alloys.
Accurate & Repeatable
Bruker designed the EOS 500 for accurate and repeatable results. Bruker designed an Air-Flow Optics ShieldTM to ensure dust generated from laser ablation does not contaminate measurements.
Easy To Use
The EOS 500 is laboratory-grade hardware however is it easy-to-use. Its interface is intuitive, results presentation simple to read and data management and transfer are a snap. Operating the unit requires very little training. Report generation tools are included.
No X-Ray Regulations
Since the EOS 500 uses LIBS technology, there are no X-ray regulations concerning its use.
Extensive Grade Library & Effective Software
Bruker’s EOS 500 includes extensive grade libraries (400 grade definitions) covering various international standards. User selectable libraries including UNS, DIN and others. With the Bruker Toolbox software you can modify existing alloy grade definitions, add new alloy grades and upload, download and share grade libraries across instruments.
