MFS-12 Optical Emission Spectrometer for Material Analysis

MFS-12 Optical Emission Spectrometer for Material Analysis

MFS-12 is a modern, compact and reliable instrument for different material analysis. It is a new member in MFS family, which is very well known in Russia and former Soviet republics. MFS-12 combines the best features of our previous instruments with modern technical solutions.

An advantage of MFS spectrometers is a wide variety of samples that can be analyzed. MFS-12 is designed for analysis of different powders, ferrous and non ferrous metal samples of different shape and size. Spectrometer doesn’t require argon.

Novel construction combined with the use of reliable and trusted components ensure good accuracy and stability.

That is why MFS-12 is an excellent spectrometer for material analysis.

Optical System

Optical System

Optical system is a well proven 500 mm Paschen-Runge. In order to ensure spatial stability of the spectrum, all the optical elements are installed on a stable cast-iron platform.

Light detectors

Light detectors are linear CCD arrays, specially mounted without blind zones, allowing to record analytical signals from the entire spectral range. Compared to separate spectral lines measurements using photomultiplier tubes, CCD arrays provide virtually unlimited analytical capabilities in a single instrument.

Sample Stand

> Sample Stand

Original sample stand construction allows to analyze:

  • Samples of any shape.
  • Rods and wires.
  • Powders: ores, oxides, ferroalloys, slags, etc..
  • Solutions (with prior evaporation).

Closed-cycle water cooling system eliminates any sample stand heating effects.

Doesn’t require argon purge for operation.

Excitation Source

Compact computer controlled low voltage spark source. Discharge current amplitude and waveform, as well as pulse duration and repetition rate are adjusted in a wide range, what makes it possible to analyze various metal and non-metal samples.

Full computer control of the generator allows to:

  • Chose the optimum excitation parameters.
  • Switch between different discharge modes in a single analytical exposure (one can use up to 5 different modes including High Energy PreSparking ).
  • Use programmable current peak at the discharge front.
  • Automatically set up generator parameters for every analytical program.

All these features improve accuracy and precision of the analysis and advance performance of the spectrometer.

Readout System

Readout system provides spectrometer control, testing and analytical signals measurements. In our spectrometers we use the most modern electronic components, thus reducing size, power consumption and heating. Due to the high speed USB interface, all the 40000 spectrum data points are transferred to the computer almost instantly.

WinCCD Software

Spectrometer is controlled by personal computer and user friendly WinCCD software. WinCCD allows to get complete control over the spectrometer, perform calibration and analysis without any special training. WinCCD contains numerous functions for spectral data processing as well as analytical tools, previously developed in our WinQuant software.

MFS-12 is an easy to use spectrometer with friendly WinCCD software. Stable optical system, computer controlled excitation source and practically unlimited analytical lines selection provide good precision and long term stability of your measurements.
