Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy

Galvalibs 2.0 and Alulibs by Tecnar

Galvalibs 2.0 and Alulibs by Tecnar

Tecnar’s Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) analyzers bring bath chemistry analysis from the laboratory to the line. Based on real-time LIBS, its patented technology performs a laser sampling of the molten metal, deep below the surface, yielding a highly accurate, multi-element chemistry analysis. By its nature, dissolved concentrations are measured directly, without the need for temperature information or model-based calculation.

Tecnar’s molten metal analyzer products include:

  • Galvalibs 2.0 – the only true multi-element, online, real-time and accurate bath composition analyzer.
  • Alulibs – all-in-one analyzer for molten aluminum chemistry
