Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, announced today it has introduced the Thermo Scientific ARL 3460 Advantage metals analyzer. An extension of the Thermo Scientific optical emission spectrometers portfolio, the ARL 3460 Advantage features four configurations specifically designed for the analysis of cast iron, steel and aluminum samples, addressing the analytical requirements of foundries and metals processing companies. Calibrated in the factory, the analyzer provides an immediate, accurate, cost-effective and high-performance turn-key solution, which is ready to analyze samples from installation.
With an installed base of more than 5,000 units worldwide, the ARL 3460 is recognized for its excellent stability, reliability, repeatability and long lifetime. The cost-effective ARL 3460 Advantage offers the same high performance capabilities, particularly regarding detection limits, precision and accuracy. It uses the same high-tech, powerful PMT detectors as the ARL 3460.and can be delivered very rapidly.
The ARL 3460 Advantage is powered by Thermo Scientific OXSAS analytical software, which is designed to meet the specific needs of users in the metals industry. OXSAS provides simple one-click routine analysis launch and full traceability and allows users to run virtually unlimited analyses, including the development of new analytical methods and calibrations, rapid high-quality routine analyses and quantitative analyses using tasks with analysis parameter templates.
