Rigaku Analytical Devices to present handheld LIBS analyzer at recycling industry events

Rigaku KT-100 Katana handheld laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) analyzer to be featured at upcoming conferences.

May 22, 2017 – Wilmington, MA. Rigaku Corporation is pleased to announce that Rigaku Analytical Devices, a leading provider of innovative handheld spectrometers, will be showcasing its handheld laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) analyzer, the Rigaku KT-100 Katana, at a number of upcoming events related to the recycling industry.

Designed for on-the-spot metals identification, including aluminum grades, the KT-100 Katana™ spectrometer has powerful analytical capabilities, with results in less than 2 seconds – at the touch of a button. KT-100 offers unique auto surface preparation with its Drill-Down™ feature and is considerably smaller and lighter than other handheld LIBS analyzers currently available. With an extended battery life, KT-100 is designed to be more robust and less prone to fatigue and downtime, critical both for on and off-site operations.

Upcoming presentations of the KT-100 Katana spectrometer include:

  • Bureau of International Recycling conference (BIR 2017), in Hong Kong, May 22-23 at booth # S20
  • Canadian Association of Recycling Industries conference (CARI 2017) in Alberta, Canada, June 8-10, booth #1
  • Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, Inc. Summer Convention (ISRI 2017) in Grapvine, Texas, June 15-16, booth #324
