Get rapid, in-field analysis with SciAps Z-9 Liquidator +Z-903 LIBS system


SciAps is proud to announce the first portable LIBS-powered lithium brines analyzer, the Z-9 Liquidator. When combined with the Z-903 LIBS handheld analyzer, the Z-9 Liquidator test station provides fast and easy analysis of brines in the field, plant, or lab.


SciAps team developed this groundbreaking technique to use only 1-2 mL of sample per test, with no dilution necessary. The Z-9 Liquidator samples the liquid and atomizes it into a fine mist, which is then analyzed by the Z-903 LIBS. Within seconds, the concentration of lithium and other key elements are displayed on a nearby tablet or PC.


With SciAps Profile Builder software, users can also develop a custom calibration to further optimize performance or use the factory-built lithium brines calibration programmed in the Z-903 for accurate fast results. Calibrations are also available for pegmatite, Nevada clays, etc.


Because the Z-9 Liquidator is light, durable, and easily transported, it is versatile enough to analyze brines at the well or evaporation ponds. Users will no longer have to wait days, weeks, or sometimes months for lab results.


With the Z-9 Liquidator + Z-903 handheld LIBS system, users can easily analyze solids and rocks, as well. Simply undock the Z-903 handheld analyzer from the Z-9 Liquidator test station, and users can freely roam, testing outcrops, cores, pressed pellets, and more.
