Fondis Electronic distributes a new portable Libs analyzer ( Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy ) manufactured by Thermo Scientific: the Niton Apollo.
It responds to growing demand from manufacturers: to easily and precisely measure the carbon content in steel. Thus, it makes it possible to control critical parts of production lines in all sectors of activity.
During checks on products such as pipes, valves, tanks, the Apollo makes it possible to verify that no non-compliant alloy has been used during the manufacturing process.
In addition to carbon steels, the Apollo allows the differentiation of stainless steels with high or low carbon content (such as 304/304 L stainless steel or 316 / 316L stainless steel).
The Apollo also precisely measures the following elements: Al, Si, Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Co, Ni, Cu, Nb, Mo, W. An equivalent carbon calculation is performed directly during the measurement.
The results are obtained in 10 seconds, the batteries are hot-swappable and have an autonomy of three to four hours each.
The Apollo is easy to use: the interface is very intuitive, the screen is in color, tactile and tiltable and weighs 2.9 kg with the batteries. The analyzer is safe (three levels of safety to trigger a measurement) and resistant (protection index IP54).
According to Fondis Electronic, it is a high-performance device designed for the field.
Since 1982, Fondis Electronic, a subsidiary of the Physitek group, has been distributing solutions for the analysis of metals. The company has acquired expertise in elemental analysis and offers a complete range of portable XRF and LIBS spectrometers. Its technical team provides after-sales service for its devices in Voisins-le-Bretonneux (78).
