KT-100S – LIBS analyzer
Handheld metal analyzer
- No regulatory requirements
The KT-100STM is the new handheld metal analyzer using LIBS (Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy).
- Alloy composition and metal grade verification
- Scrap metal sorting
- PMI (Positive Material Identification) testing
Light Element identification
The KT-100S is suited for light element detection, such as Aluminium (Al), magnesium (Mg) and Beryllium (Be).
The KT-100S offers an advanced method for easily identifying the most popular Al grades – 1100, 6061 and 6063 – as well as Al and silicon (Si) brasses and bronzes or Be in coppers.
This handheld analyzer also delivers accurate identification of popular grades of stainless steel, nickel and titanium alloys.
The KT-100S passed rigorous durability tests proving its capabilites in the harshest environment. (MIL-STD-810G).
In addition, its IP-54 rating and safety window protect against dusty and wet environments.
Thus the maintenance cost is significantly reduced.
The KT-100S is easy to use even wearing gloves thanks to its touch screen and its raised buttons or its “quick launch” near the trigger.
It is easy to read results on the screen which has a high resolution. The screen can be operated as a touchscreen.
The KT-100S is also small and light (1.5 kg ; 24.3 x 8.4 x 25.7 cm).
Results are displayed in a simple “match/no match” format that alerts the user of the alloy identification, as well as the elemental composition percentages. Users have the ability to quickly add new alloys to a customized on-board library.
This analyzer is also password-protected and offers a “sleep mode” to improve safety and battery life. Its on-board camera captures images of the metal pieces being analyzed with the ability to transfer data into a report via USB or WiFi.
The metal found in these types of industrial environments is usually dirty and oxidized so the KT-100S includes a Drill Down auto sample surface preparation capability. Users have the ability to ‘drill down’ dynamically and the analyzer will automatically burn through the common imperfections found in the metal to obtain a clear reading.
