X-Series XRF Analyzers
SciAps X-Series is the world’s lightest, smallest, fastest, high precision family of XRF analyzers. With the newest models under 3 lbs. and lightning fast, they can be used all day long without fatigue.
Two Platforms for Handheld
At 2.75 lbs., the X-5 Series are the lightest analyzers ever created, in a mostly metal frame for ultimate durability and duty cycle. The narrow, slender form factor accesses the toughest test locations, with the latest 2.7″ (68.6mm) display for rear viewing of grade and chemistry.
The totally re-engineered X-200 and X-50 are the lowest priced XRF guns on the market, yet still offer best-in-class analytical and speed performance, with all all the accuracy and throughput of the X-5 Series. Now with improved heat dissipation, reduced weight, and new user-interface.
Standardized & Field-Worthy Platform
Every X analyzer is built on the same tested platform.
2 cameras for precise targeting, photo-documenting, reading QR and bar codes
Lightweight, balanced, ergonomic, free-standing design
Detector protection – high-speed steel shutter protects the detector between tests
Global connectivity – monitor testing, check quality, print reports in real time
Lowest service costs in the business
Intuitive Android operating system

SciAps Premium XRF Analyzers
The right mix of great performance and value.
Want the accuracy and throughput of the premium models, but in a lower-priced series of analyzers? Then consider the totally re-engineered “value” series, with improved heat dissipation, reduced weight, new user-interface. All internal electronics now use less power and operate at higher temperatures—no drift or shutdown.
New, lightweight design at 3.1 lbs. (1.4 kg) including batteries
Redesigned heat sinking, can now operate continuously up to 110F (43C) ambient temperatures
Up-to-date software, user interface, and full recalibration
The silicon drift-detector (SDD) model is competitively priced for every performance requirement. Only slightly heavier than the X-505/550 platform, but still with industry-leading speed and precision. The X-200 is the value version of the X-505.
The “old school” PiN diode technology for basic analysis of transition and heavy metals. A great value for analyzing basic alloys including stainless, high temps, copper alloys.
Compare Our Value Models
Offers comparable speed/precision as top of the line competing brands, at a lower price point, in a smaller, lighter package. 40 kV, Rh anode (alloy) or 50 kV Au anode (Geochem, Soil, others). 20 mm2 standard SDD and DPP. 125k cps, > 90% live.
Alloys: Best value where aluminum sorting is daily but not the major focus. Requires a 2nd beam test of 8-10s for Mg at 0.8% in Al base. Requires 5-6 second Beam 2 test time for Al, Si, S and P. Requires 15-20 seconds to measure 0.3-0.5% Mg in grades such 6063 or 356 or 3004.
Geochem, Soils: Offers comparable precision, limits of detection and elemental range of other leading XRF brands, but in a lighter weight package, and at a lower price point.
Our most economical model. Great basic analysis of transition and heavy metals. 40 kV, Rh anode (alloy) or Au anode (Geochem, Soil, others). 7 mm2 PIN diode, standard DPP, 15k cps, 50% live.
Alloys: Basic sorting of SS, high temps and red metals. Only sort Al alloys by MLCs, 2000s and 7000s.
Geochem, Soils: Same element suite, but with older PiN diode detector technology. Test times will be much longer to achieve same precision, but X-50 platform lower priced.
