X-200 XRF Analyzer

The Workhorse. Our X-200 XRF analyzer is the perfect blend of high performance and attractive price.

The X-200 offers speed and performance comparable or superior to the top end analyzers from other brands. It uses a top-performing SDD combined with highly optimized X-ray tube and detector geometry. The X-200 is rapidly becoming the first choice for scrap processing and non-destructive testing due to speed and analytical performance combined with the lightweight, small form-factor design. It’s fast on every alloy family including aluminum alloys. For geochemical applications, it offers suites of elements for environmental, pathfinder, exploration, and mining. Other available apps include environmental soil, RoHS, Precious Metals, Car Catalysts, Coatings, and SciAps Empirical App for users who want to test other types of materials and generate their own calibration models. Analyzers may be factory calibrated with fundamental parameters, Compton Normalization (EPA Method 6200), or user defined empirical calibrations.

X-Ray Tube: 40 kV, Rh anode (alloy) or 50 kV Au anode (Geochem, Soil, RoHS, others).

Detector Rate: 20 mm2 standard SDD and DPP. 125k cps, > 90% live.

Metals & Alloys

Basic sorting of SS, high temps and red metals. Only sort Al alloys by MLC’s and 2000’s and 7000’s.

GeoChem & Soils

Geochemical applications available with element suites for environmental, pathfinder, exploration, and mining.


Fast, precise analysis for RoHS elements Pb, Hg, Cd, Br and Cr. Also includes other restricted materials plus halogen free. Operates at 3 different beam conditions for optimized limits of detection across entire periodic table. Automated sample type recognition (polymer, alloy or mixed type), complete with camera for photo-documentation.
