Oxford Instruments understands the increasing importance of the need to analyse key elements in metals.  Materials verification, PMI and scrap sorting are all areas where high standards are demanded by end-users, quality control systems and safety procedures.

Precision and performance has to be second to none.  That is why ARC-MET8000 has been designed to identify all the key elements in metals, including carbon and other light elements.  Recognizing that carbon identification is of primary concern in all material identification is of primary concern to all material verification functions, especially welding, ARC-MET8000 has the unique capability of measuring carbon in both air and argon modes.

ARC-MET8000 mobile, battery operated OES analyser for alloy analysis, offers:

  • Fast analysis and sorting of ferrous and non-ferrous metals i.e. low alloy steels, SS, tool steels, low alloy (white) cast iron.  Includes alloys Al, Ti, Ni, Co, Cu, Zn and Mg.
  • Carbon analysis in air from low alloy steel
  • Superior analytical quality with IP54 (NEMA 3) Protection Rating
  • Ease of use
  • Repeatable results for Carbon, Sulphur, Phosphorous and Boron
  • Expandable assay models
  • Rugged design
  • Convenient mobility
  • Versatility - Easy interchange between ARGON or AIR
  • Battery Operation

Testmaster Pro

TEST-MASTER PRO is a robust, mobile spectrometer for precise analysis, quick grade ID and sorting of metallic samples. It is optimised for continuous operation, and is ideally suited for heavy industrial and fully automated applications.

The TEST-MASTER PRO exhibits the unique capability to produce precise carbon analysis with a surprisingly short 4 second test.

A software controlled digital high frequency power source produces a controlled spark in argon or a direct-current arc in air.

Current, voltage, frequency and inductance can be separately monitored and adjusted to optimise the most efficient parameters for the particular application.

Frequencies and voltages up to 500 Hz / 500 V as well as an arc current of up to 6 amps allow the trouble-free excitation. An added advantage is that even grey cast iron excitation in spark-mode is possible.

Speed of analysis, precision and user-friendliness were the most important factors in the development of the TEST-MASTER PRO.

The Multi-CCD-Optic’s readout system uses DSP technology (Digital Signal Processing). The 14 CCD-detectors each have a dedicated processor, evaluated the data from the complete wavelength range in microseconds.

Cooling within the case of the instrument has been revolutionised, the TEST-MASTER PRO is equipped with a secondary cooling-circuit with heat exchanger. The conventional cooling fan arrangement and air-convection found in most instruments becomes redundant. Heat is dispelled via a specially designed jacket, efficiently cooling the instrument without moving parts.

Additionally the TEST-MASTER PRO´s housing is hermetically sealed so that dust particles or other impurities can’t get into the instrument case causing instrument failure.

Features include:

  • Heat exchanger for cooling
  • Rapid sorting including carbon determination
  • Light weight sample probe
  • High performance
  • Input via Touch-Screen
  • Automation

Fast and reliable metal-analysis

The completely revamped spectrometer offers additional functions and improved analytical capability in a compact and sturdy construction.

Apart from the new excitation-electronics, which guarantee a superior precision and constancy in both Arc and Spark results, the energy management of the instrument was also enhanced for mobile use. The 24 volt power supply is designed to guarantee independence from mains power over a number of days. Operation is via a 12.1 inch touch-screen monitor. Depending on the use, the monitor can be individually adjusted. The pluggable module can also be used independently of the transportation unit, making it easy to use even in difficult to access locations.

Thanks to the multi CCDs Optical-system with up to 30,000 channels, material tests on all standard material grades and chemical elements can be executed. With the optional UV probe assessing P and S in Steel is unproblematic.

The optical system is fully re-adjusted automatically without any interaction by the operator. As this process is constantly preformed in the background during normal operation, it is not necessary to acclimatize the instrument. When switched on, the PMI-MASTER PRO is immediately ready for action with no warm-up phase.

Due to the WAS Jet-Stream Technology; the probe can be used on the most complex shapes, even wire as thin as 1 mm can be accurately measured without the added cost of specialized and expensive adapters. Our probes are fitted with HPC fibre-optic cable. This special high transmission Quartz-fibre is not prone to decay (blindness) caused by the effects of solarisation and is therefore unique in its stability and durability. This uniqueness allows precise measurement of the minutest trace of carbon. (i.e., in low carbonized stainless steel 1.4404/1.4306)

Perfect mobility due to batterypower, the transportation unit and the sample length of the probe-heads flexible tube.

  • A versatile analytical-system in spite of its compact construction.
  • Precise analysis and material identification with quality detection
  • Jet-Stream Technology permits prompt measurement on all shapes and forms
