Q4 TASMAN Series 2 - All-Over Improvements

Our engineers took every opportunity to further improve the analytical performance in the new Q4 TASMAN Series 2. The analytical range of the Q4 TASMAN Series 2 has been extended for many elements, and new element sets enable the analysis of new alloy types. Addressing the entire metals market, dedicated Analytical Solution Packages (ASPs) are available for all ten common metal bases: Fe, Al, Cu, Ni, Co, Pb, Sn, Zn, Mg, and Ti.. These ASPs include full element sets, calibrations, alloy groups, and standardization samples. ASPs provide analytical performance that’s precisely tuned for the metals world - and its future demands.

Why do I need spark-OES?

OES gives you an ultrafast analysis of your solid metal sample without complications. All relevant elements are simultaniously determined.

What is your analytical challenge?

Iron & Steel

Processing steel requires precise and accurate results on incoming and outgoing materials over a wide variety of alloys, incl. N at trace level.


Mastering the phosophorous and alkali content in aluminum


Copper is the building block of many alloy types. The Q4 TASMAN covers them all including oxygen determination in pure copper at trace level.


Titanium and its alloys are high-performance materials used for demanding applications like aviation & space, defence, chemical, biomedical with strictest quality requirements.

Non-ferrous metals and alloys

Lead, zinc, tin, cobalt, nickel and magnesium are widely used as alloying elements but also have a wide variety of individual applications.
