Metavision-1008i3

When excellence is not good enough

The Metavision-1008i3 has been designed to deliver high-performance at low detection limits while not compromising on economy. Capable of analysing 45+ elements, including C, N, O, Li, Na, S, P and several more, with low to single ppm limits of detection for most, this spectrometer is ideal for a wide range of quality-conscious users. Being CCD-based, there is never any need for hardware upgrades, even if new elements, bases or matrices are to be added post-purchase, with additions being simple and possible to do even at-site.

The Metavision-1008i3 leverages Metal Power’s patented TD-Scan method, offering class-leading resolution that directly translates into lower detection limits, higher stability and better elemental coverage than any other OES in its class. Added to this, the entire optical system is thermally stabilized to a low temperature, which minimizes thermal noise and further improves performance.
With a full range capability of 130-671 nm, the Metavision-1008i3 covers the vast majority of elemental lines – offering 45+ elements across bases in standard configurations – and the potential to add still more besides. The Metavision-1008i3 delivers resolution down to 7 pm and the usage of custom-developed components ensures that it is the only instrument in its class to offer Oxygen analysis at low levels (down to 10 ppm) with extremely high precision; the instrument also offers low and single ppm analysis for all trace and alloying elements including C, S, P, B, Ni, Cr, Li, Na etc. making it the ideal solution for all but the most stringent applications.

For any spectrometer, the quality as well as the stability of analyses are very closely correlated with the quality of the power source – and the stability of the current discharge it provides. Additionally, the ability to tailor output at a granular level is critical to ensure that analysis is optimized for each element in every application. _e innovative digital plasma generator of the Metavision-1008i3 comprises a fully current-controlled source with ratings that ensure an exceptionally wide range of outputs for each parameter of the discharge. With ultra-granular computer-based control over each parameter, the power unit ensures the highest levels of plasma stability and the ability to generate the ideal spectra for different applications. Designed for inputs of 90-270 V AC, this is also truly global and can be used in any part of the world without restriction.

The Metavision-1008i3 has been built to be very easy to service and maintain. Fully modular in its build, the instrument has optimized isolation of sub-systems to deliver twin benefits – no interference / noise and easy access for maintenance and servicing. Each system is easily and independently accessible to engineers for servicing and to operators for routine maintenance tasks. The design also ensures that no sub-system is at risk during any activity including cleaning and changing any of the consumables.

The Metavision-1008i3 offers ultra-rapid analyses and employs an optics design that negates the need for any vacuum pumps. It also reduces Argon consumption to the lowest levels by eliminating constant purging. The impact of the TD-Scan on hardware improves economy and stability. The instrument is also seamlessly upgradable at-site to add elements and calibrations as required and the design of parts that require routine maintenance, the software interface and applications suite are all designed to be usable even by laymen. This ensures optimal investment protection and class-leading analysis and ownership costs across each stage of the product lifecycle.

For users, what matters far beyond design and feature-sets is the quality and usability of outputs. To this end, we have envisaged and developed applications for the Metavision-1008i3 that meet almost every stated and unstated need of users across sectors. This spans not just the elemental coverage, but also the detection limits and additional outputs the spectrometer delivers. For example, keeping in mind the requirements makers of Pure (OFC and ETP) Copper, the instrument delivers detection limits as low as 10 ppm (0.001%) for Oxygen, ensuring that users need but a single instrument to cover the entire gamut of chemical testing requirements.
Similarly, the Metavision-1008i3 offers detection limits in the range of 1-10 ppm for virtually every important element in Steels (including C, S, P, B, Mo, V, Al etc.) along with low detection for N and O; it offers single-ppm detection for Li and Na, as required by firms in the Aluminium sector and low-level Cobalt detection to meet the requirements of battery manufacturers. It also offers Master Alloy calibrations to meet the needs of alloy-makers who are now able to accurately assess major as well as trace elements accurately even in the master alloys. In the design of each application, the first question addressed has been what the user truly requires for completeness of analyses.

Steel Plants and makers of micro-alloys require analysis of the widest possible range of elements, all down to single or
sub-ppm levels. More importantly, they require the highest levels of accuracy and repeatability even at very low levels.
With low and single-ppm detection limits for most elements and the ability to analyse C, O, N, S, P etc. to very low levels with high repeatability, the Metavision-1008i3 addresses all these needs and more. The ability to also analyse fine wires and razor foils, adds a different dimension to the instrument, making it an exceptional value proposition for such buyers.

Pure Metal Producers such as those in Lead, Zinc, Copper, Titanium etc. – require extremely low limits of detection across
almost every element including heavy elements such as Lead, Arsenic, Cadmium etc. to meet purity requirements as well as
environmental norms.
The Metavision-1008i3 offers low detection limits that enable analysis of 99.99+% purity metals with exceptionally high precision. For makers of Pure Copper and Titanium, the Oxygen analysis capability of the Metavision-1008i3 adds an additional dimension – allowing for precise determination even in OFC and ETP Copper apart from covering the needs for all Titanium grades as well.

Commercial laboratories cater to a whole host of industries, often analyzing several hundreds of samples daily for a
large variety of metals and alloys. This is also true for laboratories involved in failure analyses and those in large industries with multifarious applications, such as investment castings. For such laboratories, having a spectrometer with high throughput, low operating costs and wide range of covered elements and detection ranges is essential to ensure satisfaction of a varied clientele with varied applications.
The Metavision-1008i3 has a rapid analysis time assuring high throughput and detection limits ranging from single and low ppm for pure metals to very high levels to cover any and every metal and alloy. It also offers exceptional long-term stability and reliability, making it the ideal solution for such users.
