The KT-100S handheld LIBS metal analyzer provides on-the-spot identification of the most difficult alloys, including aluminum grades, with improved detection limits and the ability to analyze more alloys. This includes ample precision for low alloy steels, stainless steels, as well as high temperature alloys and the added detection of lithium in aluminum alloys. In addition, the KT-100S analyzer is designed to be the ideal analytical tool for use in scrap metal yards because of its low cost of ownership, MIL-STD 810G drop-test certification and IP-54 protection rating.
Another major benefit to the user is that because the KT Series of handheld LIBS analyzers utilize a laser excitation source, there is minimal to no regulatory licensing requirements. David Mercuro, LIBS Sales and Product Director at Rigaku Analytical Devices said: “Our handheld LIBS platform was specifically built for ISRI and we are confident we have the solution to expand their sorting capabilities for an even greater profit.”
