X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometers
for elemental analysis or trace element analysis
Energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence technology (ED-XRF) provides one of the simplest, most accurate and most economic analytical methods for the determination of the chemical composition of many types of materials. It is non-destructive and reliable, requires no, or very little, sample preparation and is suitable for solid, liquid and powdered samples. It can be used for a wide range of elements, from sodium (11) to uranium (92), and provides detection limits at the sub-ppm level; it can also measure concentrations of up to 100% easily and simultaneously.
SPECTRO is a world leader in the manufacture of energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometers. In recent years, SPECTRO has set standards by further developing X-ray fluorescence technology to create many new fields of operation for ED-XRF spectrometers.
The new SPECTRO XEPOS spectrometer represents a quantum leap in energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence technology. It provides breakthrough advances in multi-elemental analysis of major, minor, and trace element concentrations. New developments in excitation and detection deliver outstanding sensitivity and detection limits — yielding remarkable gains in precision and accuracy.
The new portable SPECTROSCOUT ED-XRF analyzers deliver much of the analytical power of top-grade laboratory benchtop analyzers. They provide fast, dependable, truly lab-quality results in the field or on the production floor – all at a surprisingly low cost. The SPECTROSCOUT analyzers provide exceptional performance, at wide concentration levels, for all of the relevant elements in the range of Na-U.
Accuracy of elemental analysis is often critical — especially in refining precious metals. For other applications speed is even more important: High-volume hallmarking centers demand both fast and accurate analysis. In addition, all users prefer analyzers that are easy to operate, with helpful software and easy transfer of results into a lab network. In dealing with precious metals, of course, users also prize nondestructive sampling.
The SPECTRO xSORT family of handheld ED-XRF spectrometers supplies elemental testing and spectrochemical analysis of myriad materials in widely varying conditions. These energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence devices are recognized for ruggedness and reliability on the job. They offer metals or nonmetals identification in seconds, with innovative technologies and designs that provide repeatable, laboratory-quality results.
