The Little Giant in Spark OES - Q4 POLO - High Performance, Multi-Chip Metals Analyzer

The Q4 POLO is a compact multi-chip Spark Spectrometer providing high-precision metal analysis while maintaining a low total cost of ownership and small size.

High Precision Metal Analysis with Low Cost of Ownership and Small Footprint

AAC™

Autofocus Included

Bruker’s patented technique for self-focusing under temperature fluctuations eliminates thermal drifts. During measurements, the new ArgonShieldTM protects the optical window against contamination.

Intuitive Productivity

ELEMENTAL.SUITE

The redesigned sample clamp’s insulated SafetyTip prevents inaccurate sample placement and provides safe operation for a variety of samples. When used in conjunction with ELEMENTAL.SUITE, the next-generation OES software results in capabilities that are also simple to use.

130–785 nm

Wavelength Coverage for Comprehensive Access to All Relevant Elements

The unique MultiVisionTM optics features an electromagnetic light juntion for optimal performance and compactness across the whole elemental range.

Q4 POLO — Little Space, Mighty Performance

The Q4 POLO incorporates numerous advancements to create a spark spectrometer that is unmatched. The Q4 POLO not only provides exceptional analytical performance for a wide range of elements, but it also permits applications previously unattainable by such small instruments:

  • Outstanding precision, especially on light elements
  • Outstanding results in the difficult analysis of cast iron
  • Reliable nitrogen analysis in low alloyed steels don to 20 ppm
  • Oxygen analysis in copper

The Q4 POLO’s exceptional long-term stability is just as impressive as its performance. The lack of temperature and contamination-based drifts lowers the need for cleaning and recalibration, resulting in consistent readings all day.

The new Q4 POLO is a ready-to-analyze solution that covers all key elements and concentration ranges from the start. All dedicated alloy groups, calibrations and standards samples are included in each base metal package. In addition, the Q4 POLO offers high uptime, low maintenance and trouble-free operation.

Key Benefits

  • MultiVisionTM optics with electromagnetic powered LightJunction provides outstanding performance and a small footprint while spanning the whole elemental range.
  • AACTM and ArgonShieldTM provide exceptional long-term stability without low argon gas consumption.
  • The new digital SmartSparkTM source has active sensing with non-energetic discharge detection for greater precision and long-term durability.
  • ELEMENTAL.SUITE provides the highest level of capability with ease of use, making information readily available.

Why is Spark-OES Needed?

Without any hassle, OES provides users with ultrafast analysis of solid metal samples. All important elements are determined at the same time.
