SciAps XRF Analyzer Models


The world’s lightest, smallest, fastest, high precision family of XRF analyzers. Speed, precision, beautifully packaged. The X’s weigh barely 3 lbs, are lightning fast, and can be used all day long without fatigue. They’re built on the Android platform for global connectivity. Manage your data and fleet anywhere, print or email results seamlessly. And Visibility? The X features the latest 5″ Smartphone display for easy viewing in all lighting conditions. Integrated camera/video for sample viewing with all models.



The X-100, X-200, X-300

The silicon drift-detector (SDD) models. Competitively priced for every performance requirement.

The X-50

The “old school” PiN diode technology. A great value for analyzing basic alloys including stainless, high temps, copper alloys.

Overview
Premium XRF in terms of speed, precision, limit of detection and elemental range. Offers comparable speed/precision as top of the line competing brands, at a lower price point, in a smaller, lighter package. Identical to X-200 for elements titanium and higher. Our most economical model. Great basic analysis of transition and heavy metals.
X-Ray Tube
50 kV, Rh anode or Au anode (application dependent) 40 kV, Rh anode (alloy) or 50 kV Au anode (Geochem, Soil, others). 40 kV, Rh anode (alloy) or 40 kV Au anode (Geochem, Soil, others). 40 kV, Rh anode (alloy) or Au anode (Geochem, Soil, others)
Detector, Rate*
20 mm2 premium SDD, FAST DPP250k cps at > 90% live. 20 mm2 standard SDD and DPP. 125k cps, > 90% live. 20 mm2 standard SDD, DPP 125k cps, > 90% live. 7 mm2 PIN Diode, Standard DPP, 15k cps, 50% live
Alloys
Measures key alloying light elements Mg (> 0.7% in Al base), Al, Si, S and P in 2-3 second beam 2 tests – 5-seconds total test time! Measures 0.4% Mg in 6063, 356, 3004 in 5 sec. beam 2, 7 seconds total test. 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. Test SS, high temps, red metals with speed, precision comparable to top end competing brands, but NOT analyze elements Mg, Si, Al, P and S. Basic sorting of SS, high temps and red metals. Only sort Al alloys by MLC’s and 2000’s and 7000’s.
Geochem, Soils
Best performance on Rare-earths, RCRA and Priority Pollutant metals due to premium detector and high rates. 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. Offers high speed and precision and excellent limits of detection on transition metals (base metals) and heavy metals, SDD technology. Does not analyze Mg, Al, Si. Same element suite as the X-100, but with older PiN diode detector technology. Test times will be much longer to achieve same precision as X-100, but X-50 platform lower priced.

Industry Unique Features

the SciAps 90+ guarantee

If you buy a more basic (and lower priced) X model, such as the X-50 or X-100, you can always upgrade to a newer model, and get at least 90% of what you paid credited towards the new model.

Pain-free Upgrade Path

Any of the X models can be upgraded to any other X model. Never worry about changing testing requirements! A minimum of 90% of what you paid for one X model can get applied to an upgrade to any other X model, any time. It’s like an insurance policy against obsolescence. And it’s only offered by SciAps.

Global Connectivity

The X and Z can send every test result automatically, to a computer anywhere on the planet*. Or share results instantly with your smart phone or belt printer to email or print test results on the spot. You can get testing data in real time from any of your locations globally. Monitor testing, check quality in real time. Forever eliminate unproductive, manual data exporting and printing. *Requires computer and analyzer to be on internet. Phone hot spot works.

Standardized & Field-worthy Platform

All the X models are the same basic platform.
  • Built-in High Resolution Camera
  • Light-weight (3 pound), balanced, ergonomic, free standing design
  • Detector protection – high speed steel shutter protects the detector between tests
SciAps X Series shutter

SciAps X Shutter

Defending your investment by design

The X features a novel high speed shutter that only opens during testing. The shutter eliminates the single biggest cause of broken detectors — stray fingers, tools, or pieces of metal that strike the detector between tests.
