Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. is pushing the boundaries of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) with the introduction of small parts capabilities for its Thermo ScientificTM NitonTM ApolloTM handheld LIBS analyser. This highly portable, user-friendly analytical device – based on optical emission spectroscopy – allows customers in locations such as oil refineries and stainless steel production sites to measure carbon and steel samples as small as 1/4 in. (6 mm) in diameter.

Users grading and identifying complex metal alloy structures can now benefit from the innovative optical engine and compact tapered-nose design of the Niton Apollo handheld LIBS analyser. The analyser brings the precision and power of laboratory testing to the field, offering increased coverage and cleaner, safer analysis for intricate samples.

The Niton Apollo handheld LIBS analyser now features an enhanced laser with a reduced aperture, allowing it to measure previously challenging structures, including 1/4 in. (6 mm) pipes, 3/8 in. (9.5 mm) bars, and larger weld wires. The analyser’s unique, fully-sealed argon environment enables rapid and precise mobile carbon analysis for metals and alloys with accuracy and safety, while continuing to provide excellent identification, an easy-to-use interface, calibration adaptability, drift correction, an ergonomic design, and fast results.
