Rigaku Analytical Devices, a leading pioneer of handheld and portable spectroscopic analyzers, will demonstrate its newest handheld analyzer for metal alloy analysis this week at the annual exposition of the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) in booth 918 in Las Vegas, NV USA. The Rigaku KT-100S laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) handheld analyzer provides an alternative for identification of a larger number of alloys, in a truly ruggedized form factor for use in the toughest industrial environments.

 

The KT-100S handheld LIBS metal analyzer provides on-the-spot identification of the most difficult alloys, including aluminum grades, with better detection limits and the ability to analyzer more alloys. This includes better 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 is the ideal analytical tool for use in scrap metal yards because of its MIL-STD 810G drop-test certification and IP-54 dust protection rating.

 

Another major benefit to the user is that because the KT Series of handheld LIBS analyzers utilizes a laser excitation source, there is minimal to no regulatory licensing requirements.

 

“We look forward to demonstrating the upgraded capabilities of the KT-100S analyzer this week at ISRI,” said David Mercuro, General Manager at Rigaku Analytical Devices. “Our handheld LIBS platform was specifically built for this audience and we are confident we have the solution to expand sorting capabilities to our users for an even greater profit.”
