Bruker AXS announced that it will launch its new G4 PHOENIX(TM) combustion analysis system with an infrared furnace for the determination of diffusible hydrogen next week at the FABTECH International + AWS Welding Show 2008 in Las Vegas at booth 13302.
Bruker AXS Executive Vice President Bernard Kolodziej stated: “Welding material producers, tube plants and steel mills all require the advanced hydrogen analysis capabilities of our new G4 PHOENIX. We are pleased to be able to add this cutting-edge instrument to our extensive range of high performance metals analyzers, including our spark-OES, combustion analysis, and X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) spectrometers.
Bruker AXS Vice President Georg Schick added: “Our G4 PHOENIX determines the diffusible hydrogen in a wide range of material and matrices. Its quick heating infrared (IR) furnace with a quartz tube diameter of 30mm allows advanced analysis of even large samples up to 220 grams without problems, along with the detailed analysis of industry-standard welding samples. A gas calibration unit with 10 different volumes guarantees simple and reliable calibration. The G4 PHOENIX is highly sensitive and the stable thermal conductivity detector is capable of reading even the smallest hydrogen contents. Our G4 PHOENIX analysis software is easy to use and clearly structured. Typical analysis times of welding samples are just an astonishing 20-40 minutes. Importantly, the analysis and report format of the G4 PHOENIX complies with both the AWS A4.3 and ISO 3690 norms.”
At FABTECH, Bruker will also demonstrate its new high performance TRACERturboSD handheld XRF analyzer, the world’s first handheld alloy analyzer incorporating a Silicon Drift Detector (SDD) for faster analysis, better light element performance and higher specificity, resulting in overall increased analytical confidence and speed.
