ARL easySpark

The benchtop CCD-based spark optical emission spectrometer
CCD technology permits cheaper, smaller and more flexible desktop instruments as compared to traditional PMT instruments. It provides the enhanced benefits needed for the determination of all elements in all types of metals, such as iron and steel, aluminum and its alloys, bronze, brass and more. Our company uses this advanced technology in spectrometers, namely the ARL easySpark

ARL iSpark 8820 Cu2-Copper-0913

ARL iSpark 8820

The ARL iSpark 8820 is based on Thermo Scientific famous one-meter PMT spectrometer in Paschen-Runge mounting operated under vacuum. The spectrometer offers optimal resolution and stability and ensures outstanding performance for all the critical elements.
The instrument is equipped with an additional spectrometer using a high performance, scientific grade tri-linear CCD (Charge Coupled Device) detector.
Together the two spectrometers compose a unique dual PMT/CCD optics that significantly increases the analytical capability of the instrument.

Other highly innovative features and technologies characterize further the instrument, among which:

• Advanced PMT and CCD signal acquisition and processing for improved performance and accuracy
• IntelliSource, a digital spark source with increased flexibility and efficiency
• Spark stand with improved design to reduce maintenance and minimize argon consumption during
the analysis
• ECOmode and super ECOmode allowing significant argon savings when the instrument is idle
• Optimal instrument design increasing the instrument functionality.

Optical Emission Spectometry (OES)


Perform rapid elemental analysis of solid metallic samples with optical emission spectrometry using Arc/Spark excitation. This technique meets the most demanding analysis needs of the metals industry from production control to R&D, from incoming material inspection to scrap sorting.

Application Spotlight


Optical-Emission-SpectrometryIn the Optical Emission Spectroscopy technique, atoms in a sample are excited by energy that comes from a spark formed between sample and electrode.

The energy of the spark causes the electrons in the sample to emit light which is converted into a spectral pattern. By measuring the intensity of the peaks in this spectrum, Thermo OES analysers can produce qualitative and quantitative metal analysis of the material composition with uncompromising accuracy.
