Handheld LIBS spectrometer VULCAN Expert

Vulcan Expert spektrometr LIBS 1

Vulcan Expert – The fastest handheld alloy analyser for rapid and accurate alloy identification.

Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) technology

  • No X-Rays – no expensive and time consuming training classes
  • One second measurement for all alloys, all sample types - no exceptions
  • No sensitive components in the analyser nose, no detector punctures

Just point and shoot

  • Custom user interface, based on extensive customer survey
  • No calibrations to choose from - no chance for user error
  • Fixed one second measurement time

Virtually non-destructive technology

  • Hardly visible burn mark left on the sample surface
  • Less than one billionth of a gram of material is consumed

Factory calibrated and ready to go

  • Ready to use straight out of the box
  • Calibrated in the factory with certified reference materials (CRMs) – traceable calibrations
  • Automatic calibration selection
  • Check sample provided with the instrument to verify the instrument stability and performance

Built to last - fit for purpose

  • Balanced, lightweight design (1.5 kg with the battery)
  • Rugged: IP54 (NEMA 3 equivalent), dust and splash water proof
