Mobile Optical Emission Spectrometers (OES) from Metal Power

Arc-spark Optical Emission Spectrometers (OES) are critical quality tools for all metal industries – offering highly accurate and precise analysis of a plethora of elements within just seconds. Typically, these are key elements of every metal analysis laboratory. But there are situations when an OES is needed, but a Laboratory is infeasible! Examples of such applications include the need for rapid sorting of scrap, grade identification and sorting of materials in a yard – also called Positive Material Identification (PMI), quick testing of materials at the in-gates of plants, validation of large products that one can’t take a sample from or the validation joints on large vessels (ships, for example) etc. Such applications demand metal analysis and therefore require an Optical Emission Spectrometer but need the spectrometer to be capable of moving to the item that needs testing rather than the other way around. This creates the need for portable or mobile spectrometers, and this is where mobile OES (also sometimes referred to as Portable OES) come in. As one of the world’s leading spectrometer manufacturers, Metal Power offers the best and most optimized portable/mobile OES models in the industry!

The What’s and Why’s of Mobile Optical Emission Spectrometers (OES)

Mobile OES take the myriad advantages of arc/spark OES and remove the constraints of needing a Laboratory environment and carefully prepared sample. The best mobile OES – like Metal Power’s Metavision-108M and Metavision-1008M3 come with self-contained trolleys that house not just the optics and plasma generation sources, but also with in-built computers and touchscreens, and are equipped with wheels and suspensions designed to enable the unit to be wheeled around over extended distances in rugged conditions like those on a foundry or forge-shop or in scrapyards, shipyards etc. Extremely compact and completely self-contained, these OES can also just be loaded into small vehicles and driven to places where testing is needed (e.g. scrapyards visited for purchasing / sales). This enables users to move the instrument to the point where testing is needed – making the OES both mobile / portable and transportable.For sparking, the mobile OES is equipped with handheld probes at the end of 4m (or longer) conduits. Multiple probe options are provided enabling users to select the mode of testing needed. Users can also select from a variety of sample adaptors, enabling analysis of different types of shapes, including curved surfaces (for inspection of items such as wire rods), angles (for inspection of weld joints, for example) etc. What makes mobile OES far preferable to any other “portable” spectrometer or other handheld models is the ability to test for UV elements including C, S, P, B, As and N. Mobile OES can test for C in all three modes (arc, spark and UV) while the UV probes address the needs for testing all these elements to low levels (down to 20 ppm and lower). This makes mobile OES far preferable to other portable or mobile options – particularly XRF – as these do not analyse UV elements at all.

Key advantages of Metal Power’s Mobile Optical Emission Spectrometers (OES)

Metal Power has designed its portable / mobile Optical Emission Spectrometers (OES) to offer the greatest advantages of mobility along with the best performance – whether for PMI or analysis – and to also offer the best user experience across both hardware and software! Some of the key advantages of our mobile OES models include:

  • Full Grades’ Library for rapid PMI
  • Very rapid analysis times across probes
  • Pre-loaded as well as user-defined libraries for Grades and/or CRMs
  • Fully integrated self-contained trolley
  • Extremely rapid stabilization period
  • Integrated 15” capacitive touchscreen
  • Integrated Trackpad and touchpad
  • Single-sample re-standaridisation
  • Easy-change probe conduits (<10 seconds!)
  • Ultra long-life field-swappable batteries (1,000 burns per charge)
  • Shock-proof; dust-proof and splash-proof design
  • Rugged build – designed for the shopfloor!
  • Most advanced applications suite with plethora of unique features
  • Touch-optimized, user-friendly, icon-driven operating software suite
  • Statistical Process Control (SPC)
  • All manner of probes and adaptors available

The What’s and Why’s of Mobile Optical Emission Spectrometers (OES)

As spectrometer manufacturers with deep reservoirs of knowledge and experience in the field of CMOS / CCD OES, Metal Power offers two distinct models of portable / mobile OES to cater to differing user requirements.

Wheel your Lab to the Sample

Often an application calls for testing of items like a boiler, overhead pipes or specific parts aboard ships. Whether testing for the grade or for signs of stress, fatigue, corrosion or risk of failure, such testing calls for high-precision analysis and is just not suited for the typical process of Lab testing. This is where high-end mobile OES like the Metavision-1008M3 come into their own. The Metavision-1008M3 delivers high quality performance while offering all the flexibility, agility and convenience of mobile OES.

High performance on wheels

Built specifically to address testing needs that mandate testing outside the Laboratory, our M-series mobile OES are opti-mized in every aspect that’s critical to make an OES truly mobile, without sacrificing the required level of performance. Re-flecting this, the Metavision-108M addresses each aspect of mobility without compromising on ruggedness! With a wide range of probe options, the Metavision-108M is designed to ensure that every single need can be addressed with the minimum of fuss.
