X-MET8000


PORTABLE XRF ANALYSERS

xrf aanlyzer x met8000 expert new

Our handheld XRF Analyzer, the X-MET8000, delivers the speed and performance required even in the most demanding applications, by using the optimised combination of a high performance X-ray tube and a large area silicon-drift detector (SDD). 

Thanks to our continuous customer feedback and product development programmes, less than 1 year since we brought you the X-MET8000 Expert, we would like to introduce you to the rest of the series. Along with the X-MET8000 Expert, the new models X-MET8000 Optimum and X-MET8000 Smart enable reliable, uninterrupted metals analysis, all-day long, in the harshest environments. The X-MET8000 XRF Analyzer, is ideal for scrap metal analysis, precious metals and jewellery analysis, and positive material identification (PMI) for inspection and manufacturing applications. 

 

  • X-MET8000 Series XRF Analyzers, include 3 models to suit all analysis needs and budgets
  • Proven “point and shoot” simplicity
  • Intuitive, icon-driven user interface: minimal operator training required
  • Large 4.3” colour touchscreen for excellent results visibility, even in direct sunlight; easy operation with gloves on
  • IP54 rating (equivalent to NEMA 3), allowing the X-MET to be used in the toughest environments
  • Optional shield (Expert and Optimum models) to protect X-ray tube and detector and prevent costly repairs
  • Quick-swap analysis window: no tool required to change the analysis window when broken or dirty
  • Customisable results screen for fast decision making: display information that is important to you, e.g. alloy grade, elemental composition, pass/fail messages, elements listed in your chosen order
  • Compact and balanced design
  • Optional integrated camera for accurate measurement positioning
  • Extensive, customisable grade library
  • Powerful data management

Scrap Metal Analysis & Sorting - X-MET8000 

The X-MET8000 is the perfect metals analyzer for metals recycling analysis. Handheld X-ray fluorescence (XRF) metals analyzers are commonly used in the scrap yards, as they offer rapid, on-site alloy identification and chemistry. 

The X-MET8000 handheld XRF metals analyzer has:

  • Superior light elements (Mg to S) analysis for fast and accurate analysis of most commercial alloys, including aluminium, titanium, bronze, high temperature alloys, etc.
  • Low limits of detection, for accurate grading and determination of impurities and penalty elements
  • Fast and accurate metals analysis for high speed sorting
  • Optimum efficiency: lightweight (1.5kg), small, and ergonomic design, with up to 10-12 hours battery life
  • Fast start-up: be up and running in seconds
  • Automatic sample size compensation for accurate testing of cables, wires down to 1mm diameter, fasteners, turnings, chips, etc.

 

Precious Metals and Jewellery Analysis - X-MET8000 

The X-MET8000 is the perfect jewellery and precious metals analyzer. Handheld X-ray Fluorescence analysers are commonly used jewellery and precious metal testing, as they provide non-destructive, “point and shoot” multi-element analysis of large and small precious metals items. 

The X-MET8000 handheld XRF precious metals analyzers offer: 

  • Non-destructive – No mark left on the sample, no material loss – Retain the full value of the tested piece
  • Fast and accurate – High analysis throughput, for maximised productivity and profitability
  • Low limits of detection – Analyse impurities and toxic elements (e.g. Pb and Cd) to identify potentially harmful pieces
  • Fully portable – Compact and light (1.5kg with battery), the X-MET8000 can be transported and used anywhere anytime. All accessories fit in the small and rugged transport case
  • Rugged: IP54 compliant for superior protection against dust and water; thick Kapton window (on X-MET8000 Smart), or optional shield (on Optimum and Expert models) to prevent detector and X-ray tube damage when testing small components and sharp objects

 

PMI Analyzer for Inspection - X-MET8000 

The X-MET8000 is the perfect PMI analyzer for Positive Materials Identification inspection. Handheld X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzers allow plant operators and maintenance professionals to test critical process components before and after they are put in service, so they do not have to just rely on the suppliers’ certificates. This approach can potentially save lives by reducing the risk of serious accidents due to the failure of critical components. 

The X-MET8000 handheld XRF analyzers are used in PMI programmes as they offer: 

  • Rapid on-site alloy analysis
  • Superior light elements (Mg to S) analysis for tight control of components and systems
  • Low limits of detection, for accurate trace/tramp elements analysis
  • Fast analysis and accurate grade identification, with the most comprehensive grade library
  • Optimum efficiency: lightweight (1.5kg), small, ergonomic design, with up to 10-12 hours battery life
  • Fast start-up: be up and running in seconds
  • Optimised nose design to test material inside bends and corners (e.g. welds)


PMI Analyzer for Manufacturing - X-MET8000 

The X-MET8000 is the perfect quality control analyzer for testing in the production process. Handheld X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzers are often the tool of choice for quality control testing, because they are easy to use and offer rapid, on-site, non-destructive analysis. 

The X-MET8000 handheld XRF analyzers are used in quality control as they offer: 

  • Superior light elements (Mg to S) analysis for fast and accurate analysis of most commercial alloys, including aluminium alloys, Si and Al bronzes, etc.
  • Low limits of detection, for accurate grade separation (e.g. 303-304, 6061-6063)
  • Fast analysis and accurate grade identification: get laboratory quality results in seconds, and reduce testing cost and time
  • Optimum efficiency: lightweight (1.5kg), small, and ergonomic design, with up to 10-12 hours battery life
  • Fast start-up: be up and running in seconds
  • Automatic sample size compensation for accurate testing of pipes, rods, wires down to 1mm diameter, welds, fasteners, turnings, chips, etc.
