Common Uses Include:
Hazardous Substance Inspection: RoHS testing from individual components to populated circuit boards with micro-spot capabilities, options include mapping functions and automatic testing functions.
Lithium Ion Battery: particle contamination analysis of fuel cells and lithium ion batteries can enhance the efficiency of failure analysis and testing
Petroleum/Petrochemical Testing: measure factors such as the concentration of elements in lubricating oil, sulfur in oils and fuels, and monitoring of recycled waste oil. Conforms to ASTM D4294, ISO20847, ISO8754, and IP336.
Learn More: Transportable Petro Analysis, the LabX-3500 offers portability
Wood Treatment: for both wood preservative solutions and wood for recycling. Liquids and powders can easily be analyzed for the quantification of Copper, Chrome, and other elements.
Industrial Minerals Analysis: analyze geological materials that are mined for commercial value, such as Bauxite, Limestone, Kaolin, etc
Cosmetics: insure conformance to product specification, safety, and cost-effective manufacturing.
Cement Process Control: XRF analysis can be used at many stages of the cement analysis process, from raw materials at the quarry, to intermediate products (clinker, gypsum, limestone) and the finished cement product.
Other Common Applications: paper quality control (Si in paper), academic, agriculture/food
