The Groundbreaking Portable Benchtop XRF

First Ever Field Portable XRF with 80kV X-ray Tube

Measure Heavy REEs Tb, Dy, Ho, Er, Yb

Battery Powered, Fully Shielded and Safety Interlocked

REEs in the Field

The world’s dependency on critical rare earth elements (REEs) has never been higher. However, the ability to properly analyze these elements in the field has been underwhelming. Conventional portable XRF, with maximum X-ray tube voltages of 50kV, can measure the light REEs but struggle to measure heavy REEs in any practical way due to inadequate excitation and severe spectral overlaps with common metals such as Fe, Cu, Ni.

The SciAps PowerHouse is the answer

Utilizing an 80kV miniature X-ray tube, the PowerHouse can efficiently excite the K shell emission lines for both light and heavy REEs and pathfinder elements Ag, Cd, Sn, Sb, Ba. The analyzer also measures another 25  elements important to mining and exploration. By analyzing these high energy K-lines, the complicated spectral overlaps with common metals are avoided completely, yielding unprecedented limits of detection and better performance than any other portable XRF.

SciAps PowerHouse Portable 80 kV XRF for REEs

Heavy REEs: Gd, Tb, Dy, Ho, Er, Tm, Yb, Lu

Light REEs: La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm, Eu

With multiple excitation parameters, the PowerHouse measures a wide range of elements just like other portable XRFs including transition metals, common pathfinders, and other economically important elements.

Portable, battery powered, and easily transported from site to site. Running on the familiar and intuitive SciAps user interface, the data is easy to acquire, easy to record and easy to share with built in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS.  

The analyzer is fully Cloud-enabled and is equipped with two cameras, one viewing the testing chamber, the second for external photo-documentation, allows operators to seamlessly tag results with high-resolution spatial coordinates. It operates for 6+ hours on twin Li-ion batteries or AC power that also recharges the batteries.
