Despite its light, 33-lb (15-kg) weight and compact dimensions, Oxford Instruments’ portable PMI-Master Smart arc/spark metal analyzer is designed to offer full-range optical emission spectrometry, particularly on hard-to-reach places. It can be used for metal analysis, grade identification and sorting.
Carbon fiber optics are said to provide a wide wavelength range at optimum resolution. Mechanical expansion and tension triggered by temperature changes, and distortion due to change of position are virtually eliminated, guaranteeing stable measuring results, the company says.
Adding to its mobility, the PMI-Master Smart also is equipped with a rechargeable and optional replacement battery pack capable of powering the analysis of around 100 samples in arc and/or spark mode, and 7 hrs in standby mode. It also can be operated with the external power supply/charger. Three different probes are available.
