arun technology
a track record of success
Since it launched the world's first commercial portable diode array metals spectrometer in the 1980s, Arun Technology has led the world in the fast-growing market for portable and desk-top metals analysis systems. The '90s have seen the introduction of the Metalscan 1625, the world's top selling portable emission spectrometer, and the Metalscan 2000, introduced in 1995 the world's first desktop spectrometer combining low-cost flexible miniature CCD array technology with a high precision spark source. The Metalscan 1650 was introduced in 1996 and the Metalscan 2000F was launched in 1997. A year later Arun Technology unveiled the revolutionary Metalscan 3000. Heavy investment in research and development continues to ensure a steady flow of new, world-beating products from Arun Technology. The company maintains close links with universities and scientific institutions where Arun is involved in expanding the application of its CCD array technology within and beyond the metals industry.
 
The Metalscan 3000 is a fully portable, lightweight and compact spectrometer for high precision analysis of metals on-site. The Metalscan 3000 uses Arun proven and successful CCD-based technology to put even more analytical power into a small, lightweight package. The revolutionary optical system in the hand-held probe provides a spectrometer that is light, compact and extremely stable. With its high-sensitivity CCD detector, the Metalscan 3000 analyzes carbon, sulphur, phosphorous and other elements in one optic. With sophisticated electronics developed especially for it, the Metalscan 3000 is lighter, easier to use, more compact and more robust than any other metals analysis spectrometer, and delivers high-reliability performance, time after time. Without doubt the Metalscan 3000 is the world? most advanced portable spectrometer, yet it is competitively priced to appeal to a wide range of users. The Metalscan 3000 is aimed at users who need high precision analysis rather than semi-quantitative identification. It is easy to install and simple to use. It makes the most of Arun Technology powerful SPARCS software for data analysis and data handling, and can be supplied calibrated for a wide range of metals. Weighing just 16.5 kgs, it is supplied complete with a smart protective carrying case.
