Q4 TASMAN Series 2

Q4 TASMAN Series 2 – Ready-to-Use Benchtop Metals Analyzer

Continuous Development

Just as the development on the metals side progresses, Bruker continuously drives the improvement of innovative solutions that let you achieve your goals faster, more reliably, and more cost-effectively than before. The new Q4 TASMAN Series 2 is the latest result of our striving for perfection.

Analytical Performance

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. 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.

SmartSparkTM – Advanced Digital Spark Source

The optimized digital spark source in the Q4 TASMAN Series 2 contributes to improved analytical precision and shorter time-to-result. Matrix-optimized, high-energy pre-sparking is applied to homogenize the sample surface, reducing matrix effects and increasing accuracy. In conjunction with an optimized co-axial argon flow design in the spark stand, SmartSparkTM delivers improved long-term stability with lower argon consumption.

Spark Stand with Flexibility Built-In The low-maintenance spark stand is freely accessible from three sides and equipped with a large and robust sample stage. The unique, pneumatically driven sample clamp supports sample heights of up to 120 mm while ensuring convenient sample handling with improved operational safety.

MultiVisionTM – The Optimal Solution for Your Applications For optimal resolution of challenging analytical emission lines in respective ranges, two dedicated optical systems are employed. The innovative dual optics concept also allows the optimal choice between three variants to fulfill individual analytical needs, increased reliability, and reduced cost of ownership due to low argon gas consumption.

The Q4 TASMAN Series 2 provides the answers you need fast, using proven state-of-the-art technologies. Particularly in combination with the new version of ELEMENTAL.SUITE software, the Q4 TASMAN Series 2 lets you achieve results faster, easier, and more cost-effectively than ever before.

Inspection of small pieces made easy

As part of the incoming inspection, users are often confronted with analysis on small components or semi-finished products. Tubes, wires, and fittings are often difficult to handle on a spark spectrometer.

The co-axial argon flow directs the gas where it is needed: at the burn spot. This eliminates the need for a standby gas flow and simplifies the analysis of small samples. A comprehensive set of adapter kits is available for the analysis of small pieces, tubes, wires, and sheets. These adapters address the specific challenges of an optimal positioning over the electrode, while adjusting tightness to samples of different shapes and sizes. Another option reduces the size of the spark stand opening by using ceramic inserts, allowing the direct measurement of samples with dimensions down to 6 mm.
