A spark OES is more affordable than ever.

An affordable price and low operational costs make the Bruker Elemental´s spark spectrometer Q2 ION elevates metal analysis into new levels of simplicity and ease-of-use. Today Q2 ION is one of the smallest and lightest ultra-compact spark emission spectrometer for metals analysis available. It is a versatile multi-matrix system for comprehensive incoming material inspection and quality assurance of metal alloys. Its affordable price and low operational costs make it the ideal tool for smaller and medium-size businesses.

Q2 ION covers all major alloying elements in many applications such as ferrous alloys, aluminium, coppers, and many more. It ideally addresses the requirements of small and mid-size foundries, metal processing industries, fabricators, quality control departments, warehouses, metal recyclers, and even inspection companies.

It´s design makes Q2 ION ultra light (less than 28 kg) so it can easily be hand-carried even to a nearby site for analyis. An optional case is also available. Despite its low weight, it is suitable for applications in which ruggedness is required. Q2 ION also defines new standards in ease-of-use. Place your sample onto the spark stand and press the start button. In less than thirty seconds you get the complete elemental composition of your metal.

The patented Flat Field CCD optics is a masterpiece of optics design andmechanical engineering. Active Ambient Compensation (AAC) provides maximumstability in a temperature range between 10 and 45° C. The high-definition CCD detector together with well-proven ClearSpectrum® technology provide best-in-class analytical performance.
