Helios II now available from us

After our new agreement with letomec and after the experience coming out from GIS Gruppo Italiano Smalto we can provide you the new Helios II and the necessary service for it’s set up and running.

What Else? We have the best solution for the fish-scale risk assessment in the porcelain enamel field

One of the most common defect during the enamel process is the fish scale on the enameled product that depend from the hydrogen that enters in the steel substrate. With our instrument is now possible make a test on the steel before use it in the enamel process. Helios II is an electrochemical permeation test for steels, based on a solid-state sensor for hydrogen measurements. It gives a quantitative evaluation for the fish-scale defect risk!
Helios II is connected to an electronic control and a dedicated pc for data elaboration and acquisition. Once acquired, the signal, that depends on the hydrogen flux in the examined sample, is processed by mathematical codes to assess parameters related to hydrogen diffusion and the corresponding quantitative evaluation for the fish-scale defect risk. Get reliable precise and continuous measurement of hydrogen flux without any time limit.
It is a completely automated instrument!

  • Continuous measurement of hydrogen flux without any time limit

  • Very safe: the test solution doesn’t contain arsenic or Mercury

• ANALYSIS ARE SAFE, the test solution doesn’t contain Arsenic or Mercury compounds which are indicated by EN10209 but restricted by the current REACH norm. The test solution in HELIOS II is not classified as hazardous.
• QUICK RESULTS, significantly reduces the analysis time, by using a solid sensor, which immediately captures the hydrogen flux and thanks to easy samples preparation.
• EVALUATION OF BORON AND TITANIUM STEELS (I.F. STEELS)
• INEXPENSIVE ANALYSIS, LOW MAINTENANCE COSTS
• EASY CALIBRATION, using a certified kit calibration (ISO DIS 6145-11)
• EASY-TO-USE, thanks to management automatic software
• SERVICE-FRIENDLY: all parts are easily accessible
