Spectro Analytical Instruments has introduced the Spectromaxx LMX10 Arc/SparkOES analyser for fast, accurate, advanced elemental analysis in metal producing and fabricating plants, and iron and non-ferrous foundries.
The LMX10 is the newest version of Spectromaxx, perhaps the industry’s best-selling arc/spark optical emission spectrometry (OES) analyser. Spectromaxx delivers outstanding repeatability, reproducibility, and reliability in material control analyses from incoming materials to in-process testing to final quality inspections, adding certainty to critical supply chains.

Spectromaxx users obtain ultrafast information on changing process conditions while achieving drastically reduced cost of ownership with lower consumables. Advanced diagnostics and easy maintenance prevent expensive downtime. In addition, the analyser features Spectro’s proprietary iCAL 2.0 calibration logic, which requires only five minutes and a single sample per day and automatically compensates for most changes in environmental temperature or pressure. Conventional analysers may need 30 or more minutes for standardisation, plus reruns whenever site conditions change.
The tenth generation Spectromaxx, the LMX10, introduces many new advancements that meet industry’s ever-evolving requirements, including:
• New analytical performance: The LMX10 has completely new factory calibrations, extended calibration ranges and element selections, optimised source excitation parameters and improved limits of detection (LODs)
• New argon cost savings: Introducing a new feature that allows for a total shutdown of argon flow during standby for periods configurable by the operator, providing even greater savings in consumables costs
• Increased ease of use: The LMX10 provides routine, trouble-free analysis of 10 matrices, 65 methods and 59 elements via convenient controls for operation; easy access for use and maintenance and enhanced software features such as quick-check programmes, virtual type standards and spectrum scans
• Easy-to-use Spectro’s Spark Analyser Pro software: This software, even for less experienced personnel, provides effortless operation with application profiles tailored to preset user requirements, automatic programme selection of sub-methods for given materials, spectra storage for later recalculations, multiple data export formats and software-only upgrades for new lines, methods or matrices
The LMX10 is the newest version of Spectromaxx and comes in a floor and bench version

The new Spectromaxx LMX10 Arc/SparkOES analyser is available in two models. The basic Spectromaxx features a single air optic, with state-of-the-art CMOS sensors proven in the flagship SpectroLAB S. It extends the relevant and applicable elemental wavelength range from 233 nanometers (nm) to 670nm. In addition, a new option analyses relevant wavelengths to 766nm, covering potassium (K).
The Spectromaxx Advanced utilises the same high-resolution CMOS technology, with the air optic covering the same wavelengths as the basic model, from 233nm to 670nm. But an added UV optic handles a lower spectral range, from 120nm to 235nm. This includes a new capability to analyse oxygen (O) in copper (Cu). In addition, a new option analyses relevant wavelengths to 766nm, covering potassium (K).
