Spectrometer "Argon-5SF"

- Emission spectrometer "Argon-5SF"


The Argon-5 device was developed by the Spectrosoft Company, created by the staff of the Institute of Spectroscopy of the Russian Academy of Sciences.



More than 280 ARGON-5SF spectrometers are successfully operated at Russian enterprises.









Our device determines the content of carbon, sulfur, phosphorus and other light elements. This is mandatory for checking the chemical composition of steel for compliance with grades in accordance with GOST, ASTM, AISI. 


In the vast majority of cases, the indicated elements in the spectral analysis protocol are sufficient to determine the exact match, but there are exceptional situations with the nitrogen content. The manufacturer ARGON-5SF did not add the ability to see the nitrogen concentration in the table with the results. In many situations, it is permissible not to control nitrogen in accordance with GOST in the presence of a certain content of a number of other chemical elements. 


Optical emission spectrometer (OES) ARGON-5SF allows you to determine the composition of steel with high accuracy.

This is an advantage when compared to X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis, which, even with the latest and most expensive spectrometer, will not be able to determine the carbon level.

Also, laser-spark emission spectrometry (LIBS) has its disadvantages. When using this method, sulfur and phosphorus are not determined on the latest and expensive devices, there are problems with the determination of niobium and tungsten. In proportion to the increase in the cost of the device, the accuracy of the determination of the chemical composition increases, especially for carbon and light elements. The lower their content, the higher the error while reducing the cost of the spectrometer.
