Rigaku Analytical Devices’ KT-100S LIBS metal analyzer provides on-the-spot identification of the most difficult alloys, including aluminum grades, with lower detection limits and the ability to analyze more alloys than traditional handheld identification methods. This includes upgraded precision for low alloy steels, stainless steels, as well as high temperature alloys and the added detection of lithium (Li). In addition, the KT-100S analyzer offers unique auto surface preparation with its Drill-Down™ feature and is considerably smaller and lighter than other handheld LIBS analyzers currently available.
Another major benefit to the user is that, because the KT Series of handheld LIBS analyzers utilizes a laser excitation source, there are minimal to no regulatory licensing requirements.
The KT-100S handheld LIBS analyzer is designed to be the ideal analytical tool for use in fabrication shops, plant environments and scrap metal yards, as evident by its MIL-STD 810G drop-test certification and IP-54 dust protection rating. Manufacturers now have the ability to provide on-site certification of verification of outgoing material, as well as confirm or reestablish chain of custody of mislabeled components.
