ferro.lyte is a mobile metal analyzer optimized for use in metal production, metal processing and metal recycling. ferro.lyte uses the principle of optical emission spectrometry (OES) with spark excitation. In contrast to conventional handheld instruments, ferro.lyte enables the precise analysis of elements with low atomic numbers such as C, P, S, B, Li, Be, Ca, Si, Mg, Al and the determination of nitrogen in duplex within a few seconds.
ferro.lyte convinces with its revolutionary design, which is designed for maximum user friendliness. The integrated argon bottle holder and a holder for the hand probe make the analyzer easy to transport and safe to operate - even without a trolley. Thanks to the low weight of < 16 kg and the compact design, ferro.lyte offers optimal conditions for ad-hoc analysis or positive material identification (PMI) at locations that are difficult to access.
ferro.lyte is compact, lightweight and thanks to its design flexible and fast to use like a handheld. In terms of analytical performance, ferro.lyte is as precise as a laboratory instrument. Essential for correct measurement results and quality management.
The intuitive user interface allows quick navigation through device settings and workflows. For example, the user can define which software functions are displayed in the main window. The user can choose between the classic analysis display or the alloy ID with target and actual values. Thanks to optical bonding technology, the clear and bright touch screen is easy to read even in the most difficult lighting conditions.
Analysis results can be exported in a variety of ways: via USB or LAN connection from the analyzer, as well as via WLAN or Bluetooth connection. The powerful intuitOS® cloud technology optimizes the provision and further processing of measurement results and thus facilitates cooperation with colleagues and business partners. This provides unsurpassed data processing (reporting) and traceability for on-site work at all times.
Elementar's innovative CONLYTE® technology significantly improves analytical performance for nitrogen in duplex. In addition, the long-term stability for the measurement of phosphorus, sulfur and boron is increased. In contrast to conventional systems, ferro.lyte uses an extended wavelength range for the determination of the nitrogen content that was previously only reached by laboratory instruments.
The extension of the wavelength range is achieved by the unique CONLYTE technology developed by Elementar (patent pending). Thanks to the CONLYTE technology, the air gap between the light channel and the plasma, which is common in mobile spectrometers, is completely sealed from the atmosphere. Atmospheric changes therefore cannot influence the measurement signal - a prerequisite for permanently reliable analysis results.
The analysis results are automatically stored on the analyzer and can be uploaded to the secure intuitOS® cloud at the same time. This enables new dynamic working methods. Analysis data can be quickly and efficiently shared and further processed. The measured values are available "On Demand" - if required at any time, even without access to the instrument - for further processing or distribution. This increases security and data availability at any time and anywhere.
For fast and reliable analysis of low- and high-alloy steels as well as aluminium alloys, non-ferrous metals or special alloys such as titanium, cobalt and nickel-based alloys, OES with spark excitation technique under argon is the method of choice. Within seconds, OES provides the most precise and widest range of analytes of the metallic constituents as well as the non-metals carbon, sulfur, phosphorus and nitrogen.
The optics, the heart of every OES spectrometer, are specially designed for use in harsh environments. Several sensors, specially developed for ferro.lyte, allow the full wavelength range to be measured without compromising spectral line selection.
The light and ergonomic hand probe is firmly connected to the basic unit with a hybrid cable. The cable is specially designed for use in harsh environments. This protects the optical fiber, minimizes the risk of failure and reduces follow-up costs for costly repairs.
Thanks to its compact dimensions of 425 x 315 x 210 mm, ferro.lyte is the ideal solution for testing areas that are difficult to access.
With less than 16 kg and its innovative All-In-One concept, ferro.lyte is the first OES system that can be carried safely and comfortably.
ferro.lyte is designed for cordless use. The interaction of the integrated high-performance battery with the intelligent battery management makes ferro.lyte a reliable long-distance runner. For charging the battery, the scope of delivery includes a charger which is designed for a single-phase input voltage with protective ground 100-240 V (+10%/-10%) and one of 50 or 60 Hz.

Although ferro.lyte is a portable metal analyzer, we still offer a sturdy and ergonomic transport trolley as an additional option. The trolley is the ideal companion for those who have to walk long distances to the measuring point, or rarely have to perform their measuring tasks in hard-to-reach testing areas - such as rod or pipe bearings.
The trolley offers space for the basic instrument as well as other accessories. Even a large argon cylinder with 10 l can be safely stowed away and transported. Large, ball-bearing rollers made of soft solid rubber ensure easy transport on any surface. This makes the transport over long distances even easier and simple - both indoor and outdoor.
It is important to us that you remain satisfied with our products and services. This means that we are not only at your side during the buying process, but also support you in the long run with our qualified services - because the best possible analysis performance and maximum system uptime increase sample throughput and reduce costs.
ferro.lyte has a very reliable and robust design - but daily use in the toughest working environments can lead to failures. In this case, you can always rely on the experienced support of our worldwide service network to ensure that your device works optimally again as quickly as possible.
