Rigaku KT-100S Series Handheld LIBS Analyzer

Advanced light element identification

LIBS is more sensitive and better suited for light element detection, such as aluminum (Al), magnesium (Mg), and beryllium (Be). However, reliable LIBS’ analysis of materials with these elements has been very limited and typically confined to a laboratory environment – until now. The handheld KT-100S metal analyzer represents recent technological advancements in laser and spectrometer miniaturization that has rapidly expanded the use of this technique into industrial operations. KT-100S offers an advanced method for easily identifying the most popular Al grades – 1100, 6061 and 6063 – as well as Al and silicon (Si) brasses and bronzes or Be in coppers.

In addition to the analytical performance of LIBS technology, KT-100S reduces the need for regulatory licensing and registration that previous generation analyzers were susceptible to.

Durable versatility Rigaku KT-100S

The handheld KT-100S LIBS analyzer is not only a superior aluminum analyzer, but it also delivers accurate identification of popular grades of stainless steel, nickel and titanium alloys with the durability you can count on. KT-100S has successfully passed rigorous durability tests proving its capabilities in the harshest environments. To guarantee protection, KT-100S underwent strict testing to the United States Military Standard 810-G. These tests involved rigorous vibration, shock and drop testing to evaluate its durability and performance when exposed to environmental stress. In addition, its IP-54 rating and safety window protect against dusty and wet environments. As the first handheld analyzer to have passed these tests, it is truly optimized for rugged use. Thus, KT-100S reduces downtime and costs associated with instrument repair known to be common for traditional handheld metal analyzers.

Sophisticated ergonomics

The design and features of the KT-100S handheld LIBS analyzer put it in a class of its own. The ergonomics consist of a pistol-shape for optimal one-handed operation via the use of raised buttons or by use of the ‘quick launch’ navigation buttons located near the trigger. The tilt screen allows for the ability to easily read results in any light and can also be operated as a touchscreen. KT-100S is also considerably smaller and lighter than traditional metal analyzers. The unique ‘kickstand’ as a ‘grab and go’ position, provides added convenience.

QuickID™ software

Offering a rapid matrix selection, chemical composition and grade identification is simple and easy to read with QuickID software of KT-100S handheld LIBS. Results are displayed in a simple “match/no match” format that alerts the user of the alloy identification, as well as the elemental composition percentages. Users have the ability to quickly add new alloys to a customized on-board library. KT-100S is also password-protected with an automatic “sleep mode” for improved safety and battery life. Its on-board camera captures images of the metal pieces being analyzed with the ability to transfer data into a report via USB or WiFi.

Drill Down sample surface preparation

The metal found in these types of industrial environments is usually dirty and oxidized. KT-100S features a patent-pending Drill Down auto sample surface preparation capability. Users have the ability to ‘drill down’ dynamically and the analyzer will automatically burn through the common imperfections found in the metal to obtain a clean reading.
