News Article:
Oxford Instruments introduces a new model to its range of ultra-fast me tal alloy sorters. mPulse, the first ever handheld Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) me tals analyser on the market is now available as two options. mPulse and mPulse+ enable users to identify a wide variety of me tal alloys at the press of the trigger and measure light and heavy elements up to 10 times faster than any handheld XRF instrument on the market. With no costly detector or limited-lifetime X-ray tube to replace, maintenance and repair costs are low.

mPulse for fast scrap sorting

The mPulse analyser is the fastest alloy sorter on the market. It has been designed for the rapid identification and sorting of heavier alloys such as stainless steels, Ni, Cu, Co, Ti alloys and many more. The mPulse makes measurements in just one second regardless of the alloy type.

mPulse+ for Aluminium sorting

The mPulse+ is the fastest Aluminium sorter on the market, up to 10 times faster than any handheld XRF instrument
available. It is able to separate even the close grades such as Aluminium 6061 and 6063 in just one second.
mPulse+ is designed for ultra-fast sorting of a wide range of me tal alloys including Magnesium and Aluminium alloys, stainless steels, Ni, Cu, Co, Ti alloys and many more.

No X-Rays

mPulse and mPulse+ are powered by LIBS technology which is 100% free from the regulatory constraints usually associated with X-ray analysers. This means that costly and time consuming radiation safety training classes and user certifications are not required.

Rugged for low cost of ownership
Designed with low cost of ownership in mind, both models feature a strong sapphire window in the analyser's nose, protecting the analysis head, safeguarding against the need for costly repairs and preventing contamination of the optics. The mPulse analysers are ready to use: with no set up required, skilled or unskilled staff can be up and running in minutes. Minimal training is required for optimal use and maximum throughput.

Mikko J√§rvikivi, Product Manager LIBS, Oxford Instruments, said "It has been exciting to witness the recent mPulse development. ba sed on feedback from our customers, our continuous development programme has allowed us to make enhancements to further improve our calibrations resulting in rapid yet accurate analysis for virtually any alloy sorting need."
