A rugged and versatile thoroughbred

The Metavision N-Series spectrometers are designed to deliver industry-leading performance across the widest range of industries, applications and environments. The CCD based N-series spectrometers are compact and consume less energy and argon, making them extremely economical to procure, operate and maintain. The truly innovative design delivers rapid, precise, accurate and certifiable elemental analysis in weight percentages and stands the test of time. Many of our customers use them round-the- clock with a few of them doing more than 400 analyses in a shift. In fact, the more you run them, the better they function!
Routine maintenance requirements are minimal and the instruments are designed to be operable by laymen after basic training delivered at the time of installation. Factory calibrations are provided for 31+ elements (including Nitrogen in steels) across multiple bases including Fe, Cu, Al, Zn, Ni, Pb, Sn, Mg, Co, Ti etc. More bases can be added at any point in time, at factory or on-site, to meet specific application needs.

The Metavision N-Series spectrometers are the product of sustained R&D based on our customers’ inputs. Within extremely compact frames, these instruments pack a substantial punch, featuring latest-generation digital pulsed current controlled sources, ultra-high-resolution CCD detectors and cutting-edge optics systems that fully exploit the capabilities of the latest technologies in detectors, gratings and also electronics and processing systems.

The combination of these results in a spectrometer that is ideal for most industrial and Laboratory application needs. The N-Series spectrometers are extremely powerful and yet highly flexible. Carrying by the same operating and applications software suite that powers the high-end X-Series and i-Series spectrometers, the N-Series offers multiple advanced features including analysis of Nitrogen in Steels. Aside from routine applications to analyse pure metals and alloys, there is also a range of proven special applications – including thin foils, special tool steel, wires, rings, coins, pig iron and several more. Our Applications Lab can also design custom applications on-demand to meet specific customer requirements.

Foundries with multiple lines, say, for ferrous and non-ferrous alloy castings, can easily afford to have one spectrometer each for each production line, leading to savings in time, costs, mix-ups, at the same time as keeping quality matters uppermost in their list of priorities.

Rolling mills, foundries and workshops need spectrometers to meet multiple needs. The OES is used to analyse a wide variety of incoming raw material, including scrap, as well as for testing finished goods to obtain valid test certificates. With its unmatched flexibility, industry-leading cost-per-analysis and ease-of-use, the N-Series spectrometers offer the ideal solution to such users, providing them with accurate analyses and significant cost savings.

Alloy manufacturers can save substantial amounts in cost by getting the mix just right. Even small savings in percentage terms could mean millions over the year. For such users, the N-Series spectrometers offer the ability to

optimize their manufacturing and achieve these benefits with ease. Given their flexibility and performance levels coupled with the ability to economically and easily take well over 1,000 burns a day, it’s no surprise that the N-series has rapidly emerged a favourite in this segment.

Medium-sized industries typically face a dilemma when evaluating OES procurement. The prospect of high capital costs can be daunting and there is always the temptation to utilize external labs. This however compromises time as well as confidentiality leading to an attempt to rationalize testing – which then has an adverse impact on the customer base that can be targeted. With their wide elemental range, (including N in steels), the N-Series

spectrometers are ideal for such users, offering a class-leading price-performance ratio and meeting just about every possible testing need.

Large plants typically have multiple spectrometers of varying capabilities – each meeting specific testing needs. Any downtime however is extremely damaging, resulting in inventory pile-ups and time delays. Having backup or standby units of similar calibre to the main units is however a very expensive proposition. The N-Series offers the ideal solution for such users – offering a robust backup to those that use higher-end OESes like the i-Series or X-Series as their main production units.
