Overview of Metal Power’s stationary / benchtop Optical Emission Spectrometers (OES)
As spectrometer manufacturers with the deepest reservoir of knowledge in the field of CMOS / CCD OES, Metal Power offers the world’s widest and best range of OES. Each model offers unique advantages in its class.
The Metavision-10008X has been designed specifically for those that require the highest level of accuracy and precision at extremely low limits of detection. Capable of analyzing just about every element possible and with single and sub-ppm limits of detection for each, the Metavision-10008X is ideal for the widest range of applications and optimizes the analysis of each element for every application to meet the most stringent standards. Path-breaking in every way, the Metavision-10008X saw Metal Power become the very first spectrometer manufacturer in the world to deliver Oxygen analysis down to 1 ppm and to offer soluble-insoluble analysis on a fully-CMOS/CCD OES! The multi-optics design of the Metavision-10008X uses the latest generation detectors and custom-designed gratings. The entire optical system – across the range from 120-800 nm – is hermetically sealed and thermally stabilized to a low temperature, which ensures exceptional stability and minimizes thermal noise, resulting in unmatched performance standards. On the UV side, the unique design and components ensure that the very toughest elemental lines – Hydrogen and Oxygen – are optimized for and deliver high precision and low detection limits. On the Visible side, the optics design extends as far as to ensure even Potassium (K) is covered. Roughout the range, our choice and design of detectors, cards and applications ensures single and even sub-ppm limits for trace elements, making the Metavision-10008X with its fully-CMOS/CCD architecture the only OES to truly cover the entire spectrum from 120-800nm and offer the full feature-set including low detection limits, gaseous element analyses and time-resolved spectroscopy.
The Metavision-1008i3 has been designed to deliver high-performance at low detection limits while not compromising on economy. Capable of analyzing 55+ elements across ferrous and non-ferrous metals and alloys and with low to single and even sub-ppm limits of detection for each, this spectrometer is ideal for a wide range of quality-conscious users. Being CMOS/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 features ultra-high resolution dual optics, employs the latest generation CMOS detectors and custom-developed optical components, 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 hermetically sealed and 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 – capable of analyzing 55+ 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 and applications 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 level 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.
Research in the field of spectrometry has continually been focused on ever-lower detection limits and faster analysis time coupled with high precision and accuracy. At Metal Power, our R&D team focuses on these, while not losing sight of the need to deliver economic value across the product lifecycle. The Metavision-1008i, exemplifies all these endeavours, offering rapid and highly precise and accurate analysis of an extremely wide range elements at very low levels in ferrous and non-ferrous metals, while also offering exceptional economical value. Innovative optics unlocking higher value. The dual-optics system on the Metavision-1008i was the first to utilize Metal Power’s patented D-Scan optics system. Leveraging this technology, the Metavision-1008i doubles detector resolution and improves detection limits, precision and accuracy multi-fold over conventional optical design. The D-Scan system reduces costs as well, delivering tremendous value. The optical system spans a wide range of wavelengths with complete spectral coverage in the range – ensuring that 35+ elements are analysed in standard factory calibrations across metals and alloys.
The Metavision-108NN+ spectrometers are designed to deliver industry-leading performance across the widest range of industries, applications and environments. The CCD based Metavision-108NN+ spectrometers are compact and consume less energy and argon, making them extremely economical to procure, operate and maintain. The truly innovative design delivers rapid, precise, accurate and certifiable elemental analysis in weight percentages and stands the test of time. Many of our customers use them round-the-clock with a few of them doing more than 1,000 burns in a shift. In fact, the more you run them, the better they function! Routine maintenance requirements are minimal, and the instruments are designed to be operable by laymen after basic training delivered at the time of installation. The software suite is not just extremely powerful, but also intuitive and extremely user-friendly, ensuring that every key analytical requirement is addressed, and value-added features are provided to enable firms to unlock unmatched value through their investment. Factory calibrations are provided for 31+ elements (including Nitrogen in steels) across multiple bases including Fe, Cu, Al, Zn, Ni, Pb, Sn, Mg, Co, Ti etc. More bases can be added at any point in time, at factory or on-site, to meet specific application needs.
Metal Power has heralded a true technological breakthrough with the launch of MOSS which is available at prices under half of any competing OES. This makes it the most economical spectrometer ever made – and by a whopping margin. It’s not just the capital cost that MOSS addresses, but also the operating costs – with world beating ptimization of Argon consumption, offering 2,000+ burns / cylinder. The real narrative of MOSS however, is not about price or economy; it’s about how MOSS shows the pinnacle of every aspect of technology being applied to entry-level OES – elevating what “entry-level” means!
