Rigaku Analytical Devices Publishes New Application Note for Positive Material Identification of Metal Alloys using Handheld LIBS

A new application note from Rigaku demonstrates a handheld solution for precise identification and verification of metal alloys in mission-critical applications.
Rigaku Analytical Devices Publishes New Application Note for Positive Material Identification of Metal Alloys using Handheld LIBS

Wilmington, Massachusetts - Rigaku Analytical Devices announces a new application study that describes the use of the handheld KT-100S laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) analyzer for positive material identification (PMI) and verification of metal alloys used in various industries, such as petrochemical, power generation, and aerospace.

The application study presents precision data for common alloys used in petrochemical and power plants – including low alloy steels, stainless steels, and nickel and copper alloys.

Alloy component traceability is more critical than ever. From petrochemical to power generation to aerospace, PMI and verification programs can eliminate alloy mix-ups, improve product quality, and prevent injuries.  PMI ensures that the specified alloy is used for every component and is of the correct material.  Parts made of the wrong alloy can corrode or wear more rapidly than expected.

In many fields, the use of portable and handheld analyzers is considered standard practice. The KT-100S LIBS analyzer offers a new handheld solution that answers many of the issues and concerns presented by current technology.  The KT-100S analyzer provides industry-leading features and precise analysis wherever needed.  The included alloy grade library includes most common grades use in refineries and other production environments.
