It’s lightweight at just 2.8 lbs.—with the battery—which makes it the lightest handheld analyzer in the market. The X-550 is also the fastest, most ergonomic XRF ever made, especially designed for NDT and PMI users who must access hard-to-reach test locations and welds. Finally, the X-550 supports key alloy applications, including low silicon (Si) for sulfidic corrosion, residual elements (API 751) and API 5L alloy chemistry requirements.
If your testing requires low alloy steels, stainless and high-temperature alloys—but no carbon—then speed and simplicity of operation of the SciAps X may be the perfect solution for you. X-ray is the perfect option if you don’t need to measure carbon, beryllium, boron or lithium. If you do need to measure carbon as well, then the One Box with the SciAps Z (LIBS) and X-550 (X-ray) offers a complete package.
Other SciAps XRF models are still available for those industries that don’t need the special design and ergonomics for tighter spaces.
