Surface Coating / Alfa Chemistry

Portable Instruments Facilities


Portable tools on-site, such as multispectral imagers or other imaging capabilities, have the potential to boost the scientific return on field surface coating inspection duties dramatically. The Vibration and X-Ray Spectroscopy facility at Alfa Chemistry also has certain portable analytical instruments that can be used on-site when laboratory-based investigations aren't possible due to sample location, size, or fragility. Such outdoor research can also be conducted and supervised by our skilled technicians.

Bruker ALPHA Portable FTIR Spectrometer

The FTIR spectrometer is a simple-to-use and portable device with wireless communication capabilities. It has a battery life of more than 8 hours and comes with a transport box that may be utilized on-site, in the Alfa Chemistry analysis lab, or at other places as needed. After relocating the instrument, there is no need to recalibrate it. It is not affected by vibrations. As a result, the spectrometer can be used in a variety of settings, including fume hoods. It comes with two simple-to-replace sampling modules:

  • Platinum ATR single reflection diamond - Used for solid and liquid samples
  • External reflection module (ERM) - Used for non-destructive, non-contact analysis of larger samples (such as coated metals). The sample area can be viewed using the built-in camera

Bruker BRAVO Handheld Raman Spectrometer

This is a high-performance, dependable handheld analyzer for Raman spectroscopy sample identification, even for dark, fluorescent, and weak scattering samples. To overcome the fluorescence issues that plague Raman analysis, the device employs Sequential Shift Excitation (SSETM) technology. It comes with two interchangeable sampling heads for solid and liquid samples, making it ideal for on-the-spot identification and comparison without the need for sample preparation. The data can be saved on the spectrometer or wirelessly sent to a computer for further analysis and processing.

Enwave EZRaman Portable Raman Spectrometer

This Raman spectrometer is designed for laboratory or field sample analysis and is sensitive, portable, dependable, and simple to use. It comes with a durable carrying bag, a laptop computer, and a fiber-coupled laser probe that can be used with either mains power or a rechargeable battery. The system is ideal for on-site Raman identification, laboratory chemical process monitoring, direct, non-destructive analysis of large samples, and any research that requires the portability and high sensitivity of a Raman system.

Viavi MicroNIR Field Handheld NIR Spectrometer

This is a tough and sturdy handheld spectrometer for collecting data in the field. It can perform non-destructive testing on a variety of samples in a short amount of time and with high throughput. The spectrometer is controlled by USB from a tablet or laptop, and the resulting spectrum can be downloaded as a data matrix for multivariate analysis with The Unscrambler program.
