  • Iron and steel alloys and impurities
  • Inclusion analysis in steels
  • High purity copper
  • Non-ferrous metals, alloys and impurities


  • High-end, 100% PMT-based (Photomultiplier tube) performance.
  • >200 analytical channels.
  • Versatile for all metals and non-metallic inclusions.
  • Fully automated, with single button operation.
  • Low running costs, with no argon consumption during breaks.
  • True factory calibration with reference materials for accuracy.

Fully Automated

The Q8 MAGELLAN online metals analyser is ready for integration in to form a fully automated analysis system. This can be tailored to your individual process analysis needs for steels, cast iron, aluminum and copper.


  • Iron and Steel Alloys – Reliable, precise, accurate results to optimise production and fabrication. The Q8 MAGELLAN can also analyse impurities.
  • Inclusion Analysis in Steel – Analyse non-metallic inclusions (eg oxides, sulphides) for cleaner, higher quality steels. A dedicated Metal Cleanliness Inspection package is available for measuring vital quality indicators.
  • High Purity Copper – With superior PMT detectors and a high-vacuum optical system, a dedicated configuration for copper can measure impurities down to sub-ppm level, with extremely low detection limits.
  • Non-Ferrous Metals – Alloys and impurities of: aluminum, magnesium, nickel, cobalt, lead, tin, zinc, copper, titanium, precious metals (on request) and demanding tasks such as oxygen in copper and nitrogen in steels.
