Emission spectrometry provides rapid and accurate simultaneous determination of many elements in metals. This technique has been adopted as standard method for metal analysis in the steel manufacturing, foundry industry and quality control departments.
The Shimadzu PDA-5000, PDA-7000, PDA-8000 are high performance optical emission spectrometers. The Shimadzu OES line utilizes many advance features that include PDA (Pulse Distribution Analysis), TRS (Time Resolved Spectroscopy), Multi-Condition Spark Cycle as standard. These features enhance the accuracy and reliability of analysis while reducing the analysis time.
The Shimadzu OES lines combine these advance features with excellent hardware quality making them suitable for any application in metal analysis.
The applications include quantitative determination of trace and major elements in ingots and alloys of iron, aluminum, copper, lead, magnesium, nickel, tin, zinc, cobalt etc.
The PDA-5000 is ideal for quality control in single base applications, quality inspection of materials and inspection of finished products, in metal refining and processing industries. The PDA-5000 features a 0.6m focal length optical bench and can be configured for Ferrous and Aluminum applications.
The PDA-7000 is now widely used for quality control, quality inspection of materials and inspection of finished products, in metal refining and processing industries. The PDA-8000 features a longer, 1m focal length optical bench and extended wavelength range.
The PDA-8000 is configured with a ferrous range of 120-586 nm to optimize resolution and the non-ferrous range of 120 – 689 nm for extended trace element capability.
As well as bulk determinations materials the Shimadzu OES line has a range of options available for special applications such as thin film analysis, wire and rods, Low N determination, small samples, oxide analysis, etc.
