The PolySpek Junior is the reliable workhorse when it comes to metals analysis. It is our entry level model which is available as a dedicated single-base unit as well as a versatile multi-base system. The overall optical design has been enhanced, and with improvements in CCD technology utilised to further improve the performance of the PolySpek Junior while retaining the major benefit of earlier units. This gives the PolySpek Junior the ability to analyse elements across the complete range of commercial metals and alloys. Additional bases, matrix calibrations and elements can be analysed without the additional hardware costs normally associated with classical photo-multiplier spectrometers. Calibration is still required for each new material using certified reference materials.
