X-200

The Workhorse. Our X-200 XRF analyzer is the Perfect Blend of High Performance and Attractive Price.

The X-200 offers comparable or superior speed and performance to the top end analyzers from other brands. It uses a top performing SDD like the X-300 and a more standard version of pulse processing electronics. The X-200 has the same highly optimized X-ray tube and detector geometry as the X-300. The X-200 is rapidly becoming the choice for scrap processing and non-destructive testing due to the 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, LODS are about 1.5x higher than the X-300, and it offers the same suites of elements for environmental, pathfinder, exploration and mining. Also available is the SciAps Empirical App for users that 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-200 for Metals and Alloys

Metals & 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 s to measure 0.3-0.5% Mg in grades such 6063 or 356 or 3004.

X-200 for Geochemistry

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.

X-250

Update to the X-250 with the 500 uA tube current in the low voltage beam. Improves limits of detection on Mg, Al, Si, P and S by 2X over the X-200, or improves speed by 4X for same LODs. Our special Scrap version of the X-250 with the FAST AL App let’s you sort every aluminum alloy in 2 seconds. Also a lower cost option to the X-350 for low silicon, phosphorus and sulfur in steels, ores and geochem samples.


X-255

Update to the X-255 with the industry’s most powerful X-ray tube at 55 kV. It’s a more cost-effective version of the X-350 with modestly higher limits of detection on rare earth elements and RCRA/Priority Pollutant metals Cd, Sn, Sb, Ag, Ba. The 55 kV option improves detection limits on key environmental and pathfinder elements Ag, Cd, Ba, Sn, Sb, Te, and also adds additional rare-earth elements (REE’s) including La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Pm, Sm. It’s the ideal configuration for car catalysts recycling, environmental and mining applications.
