Test in 2-6 seconds, and never lose speed over time. As soon as the X-550 Pb determines the lead paint level is above or below the action level at 2-standard deviation (95%) confidence, the test is automatically terminated. Based on PCS testing at action levels of 0.5, 0.7 and 1.0 mg/cm2, most tests end in two seconds, and the longest test is six seconds.
No substrate corrections, no inconclusive ranges or tests, even for action levels as low as 0.5 mg/cm2 (Rh anode). Choose completely automated Quick Mode for PCS types of testing, or Timed Mode for industrial lead paint testing.
Greatly reduces the burden of owning and controlling radioactive materials and costly isotope replacement. Moreover, the test times are the same in five years as the day you purchase the analyzer – one of the many advantages of X-ray tube technology.
