Analyzing multiple bases on one laboratory OES instrument requires special care and extra maintenance. For those who work with multiple bases (copper, nickel, iron, aluminum) on one instrument the operator must ensure cross contamination doesn’t occur. Cross contamination will skew the results of a sample test and could cause material to pass or fail unnecessarily.
The Belec Vario solves the cross contamination issue by incorporating an optional secondary sample stand. The second sample stand allows for different alloy families to be tested on separate spark stands without increasing routine maintenance and reducing throughput.
