The Z-200 is the most portable, high performance LIBS analyzer ever created. It?s advanced technology includes on-board argon purge to deliver quantitative results; laser burst surface cleaning to eliminate grinding or surface prep; laser rastering for improved precision. It?s Android-based operating system is as friendly and intuitive as a Smartphone, and it supports numerous analytical Apps for a variety of sample types.
The Z is the ONLY handheld LIBS with an integrated, user-replaceable argon purge. As any OES user will attest to, operating in an argon purge environment delivers 10x or more intensities, thus yielding far superior precision and limits of detection compared to air-based LIBS. In fact a major reason why the Z-200 can precisely analyze fine distinctions in aluminum alloys, and stainless, iron base and nickel superalloys, is due to the precision advantage from argon purge. Also available are larger belt-mounted canisters (4x the volume). Users may also connect the Z to industry standard stationary argon tanks with our optional package of bridge regulator and tubing.
Dirty scrap? Oxidized or dusty metal components? The Z features novel cleaning mode to eliminate the need for grinding or surface prep ? a critical requirement and something no other handheld laser unit offers. Cleaning mode fires the laser at 50 Hz (50 shots/second). After 0.2 sec 10 laser blasts have obliterated surface contamination, then the Z takes data from the cleaned surface. The Z delivers the same answer whether the surface is clean or dirty!
