Vulcan Handheld Laser Induced Breakdown (LIBS) Analyser

Vulcan is one of the fastest metals analysers that is built to last. Just squeeze the trigger and one second later the result appears. As it uses Laser Induced Breakdown (LIBS) technology, you won’t need to worry about X-rays.

Whether your business is scrap sorting or PMI quality control Vulcan delivers accurate and consistent grade ID every time.

Why is Vulcan the Perfect Tool for your Business?

Simple to Use

‘Point and shoot’ operation and intuitive user interface hugely reduces if not almost completely eliminates user error. The instrument is ready to go straight out of the box.

Built to Last

Its measurement optics are protected by sapphire glass, one of the toughest materials available. It’s also splash water and dust proof (IP54 certified, NEMA 3 equivalent), and complies with the MIL-STD-810G military grade standard for ruggedness.

Works Alomost Invisibly

Less than one billionth of a gram of material is consumed during a typical analysis leaving an almost invisible burn mark on the surface of the metal.

Full Day Operation

Vulcan’s 8–10 hour battery life ensures that there will be no interruptions in your work routine.

Low Cost of Ownership

A much lower cost of ownership than an XRF analyser, which requires expensive licenses and time consuming radiation safety training classes.


Share and store your results securely, and generate reports with our cloud-based service. You can also connect Vulcan directly to your mobile phone to add pictures and to share results instantly.


Vulcan gives results in one second, regardless of the alloy type. A couple of second’s difference in speed can have a huge impact to your operations. When measuring aluminium alloys, Vulcan can be even 10 times faster than XRF.
