SciAps Z-200 C+ LIBS Analyzer

Pine Item #52324

The world’s only handheld analyzer that delivers carbon content in stainless, steels, and cast irons…yes even L-grades.

The Z-200 C+ is a dedicated analyzer for alloy analysis including carbon content. It analyzes carbon content in stainless, down to 0.007 ppm, for dependable separation of L and H grades. The C+ also analyzes carbon steels, including carbon equivalents (CE) for weldability. The analyzer is available in two versions. The Z-200 C comes with iron-base calibrations including carbon. The Z-200 C+ includes both iron and stainless bases and carbon.

The Z uses the technique laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS), which has many similarities to spark OES. LIBS has been an established laboratory technique for 20+ years. It fires a pulsed laser at the material to create a plasma, instead of a continuous electric spark-like spark OES. Light from the plasma is measured with an onboard spectrometer to determine individual wavelengths and thus what elements are present. The elemental content is quantified via onboard calibrations.


High-purity Argon and Purge. Argon purge is essential for quantitative analysis with LIBS and OES, and for carbon it is critical

High laser pulse energy and frequency. The SciAps laser delivers 5-6 mJ/pulse on the sample, with a 50 Hz repetition rate

Laser Raster. Rastering is a must for accurate carbon tests with LIBS. The laser is typically 100 um diameter beam and even the best sample prep may not completely remove surface contamination on this distance scale

High speed laser cleaning shots. Eliminates most surface sample prep

Eliminates bad burns. On-board camera and laser targeting eliminates poor quality “burns”
