BRuker Eos 500 Handheld Libs





The Bruker EOS 500 Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (HH-LIBS) analyzer is designed to analyze the elemental composition of metals. The EOS 500 works by laser excitation of a sample followed by quantitative analysis of the plasma generated from the laser. In 3-5 seconds you will get a reading of the alloys included in the test sample including aluminum/titanium/magnesium alloys.

Fast, Lightweight & Analyzes Light Elements

The EOS 500 is well suited for use in scrap sorting of alloys because of its lightweight (2.4 kg including battery), fast analysis and ease of operation. In addition to the standard XRF elements, the EOS 500 can analyze very light elements such as Li, Be and B, and is the preferred analyzer for measuring elements such as Mg, Al, Si. For light element analysis with the EOS 500, it is approximately 10x faster than XRF, easily saving you time and money. Optional calibrations are available for Iron, Nickel, Copper and Cobalt alloys.

Accurate & Repeatable

Bruker designed the EOS 500 for accurate and repeatable results. Bruker designed an Air-Flow Optics ShieldTM to ensure dust generated from laser ablation does not contaminate measurements.

Easy To Use

The EOS 500 is laboratory-grade hardware however is it easy-to-use. Its interface is intuitive, results presentation simple to read and data management and transfer are a snap. Operating the unit requires very little training. Report generation tools are included.

No X-Ray Regulations

Since the EOS 500 uses LIBS technology, there are no X-ray regulations concerning its use.

Extensive Grade Library & Effective Software

Bruker’s EOS 500 includes extensive grade libraries (400+ grade definitions) covering various international standards. User selectable libraries including UNS, DIN and others. With the Bruker Toolbox software you can modify existing alloy grade definitions, add new alloy grades and upload, download and share grade libraries across instruments.
