Laser-based alloy analysis: better than x ray for aluminum and red metals

Laser spectroscopy can boost productivity and make your alloy sorting more profitable. Want to turn 5 tons/month into 25 or more? The SciAps laser-based alloy analyzer is the key to profitable alloy sorting.

SciAps Z laser gun can sort Al alloys in just 1 to 2 seconds, whereas x-ray can take up to 60. Laser can also process copper alloys at least 3 times faster than x-ray, making it the most productive alloy analyzer on the market.

But, how is it so fast?

SciAps Z is the only laser gun that offers on-board Argon purge, the key to fast and accurate alloy analysis. Using Argon yields 10x or better intensities with higher precision and limits of detection. The Z uses a high energy/pulse laser (6mj/pulse or higher), making it the most powerful laser available.

Not to mention, laser spectroscopy eliminates exposure to radiation, making for a safer upgrade. It is easier to handler small samples because you can hold them in your hand and you don’t need to have a test stand, lap top or radiation badge.

The maintenance costs are also must lower, with no detectors or tubes to break. Repairs typically run at about $500, maximum $1500, whereas a typical x-ray repair will cost you anywhere from $6,000 to $10,000.
