TSI Launches ChemLite LIBS Metal Analyzer at ISRI 2014
TSI, the leader in laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) technology, unveils a ruggedized, handheld LIBS elemental analyzer specifically designed for fast metals identification in the field.
The ChemLite LIBS Metal Analyzer features a lightweight, ruggedized NEMA-3 portable enclosure, a large 5-inch color touch screen, and an eye-safe IR-B, Class 1 laser. The ChemLite laser is powerful enough to remove surface contamination for representative assays yet requires no radiation training or personal protection equipment. TSI is known for designing and manufacturing precision instruments and the handheld LIBS element analyzer brings the right tool to the field: simple point-and-shoot analysis with measurements in seconds. The ChemLite LIBS Metal Analyzer is ideal for analyzing wrought and cast alloy grades, scrap metal sorting identification, incoming material inspection, quality control, and other related measurements – even for light metals like aluminum.
"The ChemLite LIBS Metal Analyzer is a radically new tool for handheld metals analysis,” states Phillip Tan, senior global product manager for LIBS products states. “Unlike handheld XRF, the ChemLite LIBS technology offers faster analysis, with no radiation hazard, and uses a laser that cleans off minor contamination. The ChemLite saves scrap yard workers time and money by reducing the time spent grinding and preparing metal surfaces and gets you the metal's chemistry fast."
