Handheld XRF Spectrometers – X-Series from SciAps
The X-Series handheld XRF spectrometers from SciAps are the next-generation of instruments brought to you by many of the key people responsible for the development and commercialisation of the Innov-X range of handhelds. These new handheld XRFs offer superior speed and accuracy using the latest technology components, all in a small, light and ergonomically designed package.
Key features of the new design include:
- Ultra-fast pulse processor
- Advanced compact X-ray tube
- Dual beam scanning
This results in a handheld XRF with superior levels of performance, high count rates and excellent resolution which gives you unmatched speed and resolution.
They are perfect for alloy sorting, Positive Materials Identification (PMI) and scrap identification. The X-series XRFs excel at stainless steels, high temperature alloys, aluminium alloys etc.
Latest Generation X-ray Tube
The X-series XRFs feature the latest generation X-ray sources. The benefit to the user is exceptional count rates (superior to anything else on the market), high resolution (135eV FWHM) and virtually 100% live time. This equates to fast, precise determination of chemistry and grades.
The X-Series from SciAps is the best handheld XRF available for the analysis of aluminium alloys. Its speed and dual beam configuration make it the most desirable system on the market setting the benchmark that others should be judged by.
If you are involved with sorting or identification alloys and super alloys such as:
- Stainless steels
- Copper alloys, bronzes and brasses
- Nickel alloys
- Titanium alloys
- Cobalt alloys
- Molybdenum alloys
- Tungsten alloys
Then the X-series handheld XRF is the ideal choice for you.
Dual Shield Detectors
Many a handheld XRF has fallen victim to a damaged detector which can be both costly and timely to repair. SciAps XRFs feature a high speed steel shutter that only opens during measurements. Further protection is offered by a carbon fibre protection grid mounted to the SSD that provides optimal protection against accidental damage.
Android Operating System
The new X-series XRFs (as well as their handheld LIBS) from SciAps have been developed to run on the Android operating platform using a 5” high brightness display that is easily viewable in all lighting conditions. This means that anyone who is familiar with operating a smartphone will instantly be at home running these devices.
Furthermore, it means that the operating system will never be obsolete and you will also have access to communications via wireless or Bluetooth so you can quickly and easily print or share data with your computer.
Ergonomically Designed Package
SciAps have also listened to what users have wanted. Aside from fast and accurate performance, users also wanted a smaller and lighter unit. The X-series have this covered offering a balanced instrument with minimised weight (less than 1.5kg) that is comfortable to hold.
