Z-902 Carbon: A new industry standard

The key to rock-solid, in-field carbon analysis for alloys.

  • Identification of stainless steel and low alloy steels, including carbon analysis down to 70 ppm and instant CE (carbon equivalents) calculations.
  • Powerful laser, onboard argon purge, and high-resolution spectrometer are built for carbon.
  • Narrow profile for accessing the tightest spaces, aerospace-grade aluminum body for improved performance in high ambient temperatures, and re-designed user interface. The most usable platform on the market, at only 4.35 lbs. (1.97 kg).

Spectrometer range 190 nm – 420 nm. Includes a second, dedicated spectrometer for superior resolution in the 190 – 230 nm range for carbon.

Handheld LIBS analyzers are instruments used to determine the elemental composition of materials. LIBS is an acronym for the analytical technique Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy. 

In use globally

Confirm alloy type and grade 300 series stainless steels into L, H, and S series. Carbon equivalent for welding. Material verification pre- and post-fabrication. Validating mill test reports. Material verification in chemical plants and refineries. Re-rating vessels.

Pipeline integrity management
Grading. Determining carbon equivalents. Validating MTRs.

Steel production
Screen incoming scrap material. In-process quality control. Resolving material mix-ups. Rapid screening of material at EAF for heat compliance.
