The Bruker Q4 Tasman Series 2

The Bruker Q4 Tasman Series 2 is an advanced, spark-OES with improved accuracy and minimized argon consumption. This benchtop system provides reliable and hassle-free sample handling while providing a cost-effective sample analysis solution. A large sample stage allows the operator to analyse small pieces, wires and bulkier samples.

The Q4 Tasman Series 2 can be used to analyse metals and alloys, including iron and steel (Fe), aluminium (Al), copper (Cu), nickel (Ni), cobalt (Co), magnesium (Mg), lead (Pb), tin (Sn), titanium (Ti) and zinc (Zn).

For challenging analytical emission lines, MultiVision offers optimal resolution with dual dedicated optical systems on robust Paschen Runge mounts. On one side, direct light (130 – 200nm, Ar-purged) couples into the high-efficiency vacuum UV optics with small inner volume. On the other side, transmission is through an optical fibre that transfers the emitted light (190 – 620nm) into no-purge UV/VIS optics. Multi-chip systems also feature temperature stabilisation.

The Q4 Tasman Series 2 utilises SmartSpark, an advanced digital spark source that shortens time-to-result and improves the analytical precision of the unit. High-energy pre-sparking homogenises the sample surface, increasing accuracy and reducing matrix effects. The spark stand is accessible from three sides and includes a large sample stage.

Three models to fulfill analytical requirements:
Q4 TASMAN 200 Series 2, λ: 200 – 620nm: Suited for all non-ferrous applications where UV elements are not required
Q4 TASMAN 170 Series 2, λ: 170 – 620nm: Suited for ferrous applications with important elements in the UV spectral range (C, P, S, As, Sn, B)
Q4 TASMAN 130 Series 2, λ: 130 – 620nm: The most powerful model of the series, it is capable of analysing even deep-UV elements like nitrogen, oxygen.
