new Handheld EDXRF Spectrometers Deliver Reliable On-Site Identification, Elemental Analysis and Screening

Mar 12 2015

Spectro Analytical Instruments today announced the introduction of the new Spectro  xSORT family of handheld EDXRF spectrometers for onsite elemental analysis and spectrochemical testing in the plant or in challenging field locations.

Each of the three versions of the Spectro xSORT energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometers delivers repeatable, laboratory-quality results in a matter of seconds and is optimised for fatigue-free on-site measurements. Moreover, the proven field-ready design features simple user-friendly displays and efficient ergonomics to make the devices extremely easy to use.

Each version of the Spectro xSORT EDXRF spectrometers is a leader in its class for a broad spectrum of applications.

The Spectro xSORT Alloy handheld XRF is designed for affordable metals identification and is ideal for the quick incoming inspection of materials. This entry-level model employs an innovative silicon PIN (Si-PIN) detector and delivers grade identification of metals in seconds without extensive analysis.

Spectro xSORT AlloyPlus is designed for advanced metals analysis and is ideal for use with scrap metals sorting and positive material identification (PMI). Featuring a top-of-the-line silicon drift detector (SDD), the xSORT AlloyPlus provides reliable, high-productivity measurement and analysis. The instrument performs metal grade analysis in only 2 seconds for most alloys, or, in just 10 additional seconds, sorts alloys containing ‘light’ elements, such as magnesium, aluminium, silicon, phosphorous, and sulphur.

Spectro xSORT NonAlloy for fast element screening is Spectro’s handheld XRF with silicon drift detector (SDD). It delivers fast, reliable measurement and elemental analysis of nonmetallic materials with an outstanding level of performance It generates high-productivity spot checks in a few seconds, or hold on the sample longer for laboratory-quality results. The Spectro xSORT NonAlloy is ideal for environmental and RoHS compliance screening, as well as for geological exploration.

All three Spectro xSORT EDXRF spectrometers offer a host of features from low detection limits down to the ppm range for heavy metals, to an interface bezel with operator-defined hot keys to maximise speed of common tasks, to ‘live’ analysis results, to wireless LAN and more.

Spectro xSORT handheld EDXRF spectrometers are immediately available from Spectro Analytical Instruments. Download the xSORT handheld XRF brochure at www.spectro.com/xsort.
