High-precision, easy-to-use, and robust Inert Gas Fusion analyser

Our innovative G6 LEONARDO is a high-precision, compact, and easy-to-maintain system for oxygen, nitrogen, and hydrogen with the inert gas fusion method (IGF). Its pre-calibrated standard applications, usage of argon carrier gas, and SampleCareTM allow robust and ECOnomic operation with reliable results. 

The three non-metals Oxygen (O), Nitrogen (N), and Hydrogen (H) determine the quality, service life, and mechanical properties of all metallic materials. Unlike metallic alloy components, the amount of O, N, and H sometimes changes considerably along the entire process chain, from the production of raw materials to the completion of the finished product. Even when present in trace amounts, O, N, and H have very important effect on the material properties.

  • FUSION.ELEMENTS™: Future-save easy-to-use software based on Bruker’s Alaska platform

The G6 LEONARDO is based on inert gas fusion (IGF), which involves the fusion of the sample material in a graphite crucible at high temperatures. This principle is also commonly termed gas fusion analysis (GFA) or melt extraction (ME) since the total oxygen, nitrogen, and hydrogen is extracted by an inert carrier gas when the sample melts.

The Smart Molecule Sequence™ guarantees trustworthy results

An IGF analysis aims to determine the sample content of the light elements O, N, and H in the trace range with absolute accuracy. That is why our G6 LEONARDO applies the Smart Molecule Sequence™ and measures the gases emitted by the sample directly, absolutely unchanged, 1:1, with proven scientific principles for trustworthy results. It also allows oxygen determination without additional chemicals, and the usage of argon carrier gas instead of helium ensures high reliability and low cost of ownership.
