Benefits of XRF in Alloy Analysis / Metal Identification

A primary use of Oxford Instruments X-Met8000 handheld XRF analyzer is for accurate, and immediate, metal testing.  The X-Met series software features both fundamental parameters and empirical calibration capabilities, so material identification can be optimized for simply sorting metals or for high accuracy when quantification of the elemental breakdown of an alloy is critical.

Standard features of the XMet8000 for metal identification include:

-  Largest Interface -  Longest Battery Life (8-12 hrs) -  Competitive Pricing
-  Industry Leading Reporting -  Competitive Pricing -  Rugged, IP54 Rating
-  Large Alloy Grade Library (1,600+) -  Touchscreen, with gloves -  Intuitive Software

There are two main uses within the primary application of metal testing and the concept of 'sorting' versus 'quantifying' is the difference between the two.

Additional Technologies for Metal Testing: LIBS and OES
Eastern Applied Research is pleased to now offer two new technologies for metal testing interests.  Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) offers one second measurement times and will be a great asset to scrap metal sorting while Optical Emission Spectrometers (OES) provide the highest level of precision with light element (C, Al) quantification and is commonly used in high precision positive material identification applications.

Regardless of whether your goal in metal identification is quick sorting capabilities or a complete alloy analysis, the X-Met Handheld XRF series by Oxford Instruments offers the reliability, ease-of-use, and report generation capabilities that have made it a top choice in all industries.
