SciAps XRF Analyzer Models


The world’s lightest, smallest, fastest, high precision family of XRF analyzers. Speed, precision, beautifully packaged XRF gun. The Xs 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-550, X-250 & X-200

The silicon drift-detector (SDD) models.
Competitively priced for every performance requirement.
XSeries X-550

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. An XRF analyzer designed from the ground up to be the fastest scrap sorter in existence. Offers comparable speed/precision as top of the line competing brands, at a lower price point, in a smaller, lighter package. Our most economical model. Great basic analysis of transition and heavy metals.
X-Ray Tube
40 kV, 200 uA Rh anode and 10kV, 500 uA for alloy testing, 50 kV, 200 uA Au anode for most other apps. For alloy testing, 6-40kV, 200uA Rh anode. For aluminum beam, 500 uA at 10 kV. For other Apps 6-50kV, 200uA Au anode. 40 kV, Rh anode (alloy) or 50 kV Au anode (Geochem, Soil, others). 40 kV, Rh anode (alloy) or Au anode (Geochem, Soil, others)
Detector, Rate*
20 mm2 silicon drift detector (active area), 140 eV resolution FWHM at 5.95 Mn K-alpha line. 20mm 2 silicon drift detector (active area), 135eV resolution FWHM at 5.95Mn K-alpha line. 20 mm2 standard SDD and DPP. 125k cps, > 90% live. 7 mm2 PIN Diode, Standard DPP, 15k cps, 50% live.
Alloys
Read more Read more 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. Basic sorting of SS, high temps and red metals. Only sort Al alloys by MLCs, 2000s and 7000s.
Geochem, Soils
Read more Read more 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. 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.

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

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.
