The Bruker Q8 MAGELLAN is an advanced spark spectrometer for elemental analysis of metals. The Q8 MAGELLAN is the only vacuum-spectrometer featuring new-generation photomultipliers, digital plasma generator, unlimited single-spark and time resolution, and a heavy duty low-maintenance spark stand with co-axial argon flow. All of these ingredients make the Q8 the best elemental analyzer for the metal producing and processing industries.
There have been numerous advancements on the Q8 MEGELLAN including:
Easy To Use
The Q8 offers users easy operation with a pneumatic sample clamp and a self-centering spark stand plate. The Q8 also allows users to analyze materials without using a mouse or keyboard but with a touchscreen instead. ELEMENTAL.SUITE provides users with color-coded information that specifically grades user's samples. The sample's grade includes internal/external limits, a match code, reference to international norms, and version control.
Co-Axial Argon Flow
The co-axial argon flow has been designed to further improve performance. Argon is centered right on the burn spot, where it is needed. This design also allows the use of ArgonStop® to switch off argon flow during stand-by which saves users on gas consumption. ArgonStop® dramatically improves analytical performance, particularly on small samples and thin wires. A new flow cycle flush condensate out of the chamber, enables users to run thousands of samples in many models without the need to open the spark stand plate.
With the configurable analytical channels and the widest Rowland segment, the Q8 combines flexibility with the certified advantages of a single-optic vacuum system.
A vast choice of applications are available for Q8 MAGELLAN:
The Q8 calibration software grants users access to all calibration information. This software is also used with factory calibration to provide a full list of features spanning from regression wizard to automatic calculation of inter-element effects.
