Positive Material Identification

The new SPECTRO iSORT is a battery-powered, hand-held spectrometer for on-site identification and analysis of all common metal alloys. It uses an efficient arc excitation and requires neither argon nor a radioactive source. Several hundred measurements can be conducted utilizing the instrument’s integrated rechargeable battery. The instrument can be used for material testing in production, component identification in chemical and petrochemical plants, material failure analysis, weld seam analysis, and the rapid determination of metal alloys when buying, selling or blending scrap metal.

The SPECTRO iSORT performs a ‘fingerprinting’ procedure to independently recognize the sample material.

For the analysis of carbon in Iron base, the Spectro iSort utilizes a scrubbing system that prepares the atmosphere between the electrode and sample enabling the precise measurement of carbon with arc excitation in air like never before.
