Bruker Q4 TASMAN Series 2
Benchtop OES for Metals Analysis
The Bruker Q4 TASMAN Series 2 is an OES (Optical Emission Spectrometer) for metals analysis.
- Versatile, high-performance metals analysis.
- Reliable OES technology.
- Low cost of ownership.
The new, next-generation system features many technological enhancements and new features. The analytical range has been extended to include new elements and alloy types, with applications packages for the ten most common metal bases: Fe, Al, Cu, Ni, Co, Pb, Sn, Zn, Mg and Ti.
The analytical range has been extended to include new element sets and alloy types. Dedicated packages are available with full element sets, calibrations, alloy groups and standardisation samples. These packages are available for all ten common metal bases and their alloys:
- Iron and steel (Fe)
- Aluminum (Al)
- Copper (Cu)
- Nickel (Ni)
- Cobalt (Co)
- Magnesium (Mg)
- Lead (Pb)
- Tin (Sn)
- Titanium (Ti)
- Zinc (Zn)
Inspect Small Pieces Easily
Incoming inspection often involves analysing small components or semi-finished products such as tubes, wires and fittings, which can be tricky to handle on a spark spectrometer.
The Q4 TASMAN has several features to make this easier:
- Co-axial argon flow – Directs the gas to the burn spot, where it’s needed. This means there’s no need for a standby gas flow, making it simpler to analyse small samples.
- Adapter kits – A comprehensive set of adapters is available for small pieces, tubes, wires and sheets. These are adjustable for different shapes and sizes, to ensure optimal positioning over the electrode.
- Ceramic inserts – These reduce the size of the spark stand opening, for measuring samples down to 6mm in size.
The Q4 TASMAN Series 2 has an optimised digital spark source and optimized co-axial argon flow design, which brings several benefits:
- Enhanced analytical precision.
- Shorter time-to-results.
- Long-term stability
- Reduced argon consumption.
How does it work? Matrix-optimised, high-energy pre-sparking is applied to homogenise the sample surface, reducing matrix effects and increasing accuracy.
Flexible Spark Stand
The low-maintenance spark stand is freely accessible from three sides and equipped with a large, robust sample stage. A pneumatically-driven sample clamp supports sample heights of up to 120 mm, for convenient sample handling.
MultiVision is an innovative new dual optics concept. Choose between three variants for the optimum set-up for your analytical requirements. It’s also more reliable, with low argon gas consumption for reduced cost of ownership.
