The X-MET8000 series of handheld X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysers delivers exceptional speed and superior performance by using the optimised combination of a high performance X-ray tube and a large area silicon-drift detector (SDD).
The X-MET8000 series has been designed to cover all analysis needs. The entry level, X-MET8000 Smart analyser is ideal for routine, rapid testing of common alloys. The mid-range X-MET8000 Optimum model is optimised for high speed sorting and analysis of alloys, from aluminiums to bronzes to stainless steels, etc. The top of the range X-MET8000 Expert provides the ultimate performance for the testing of the widest variety of alloys; with superior light elements (Mg, Al, Si, P and S), tramp and trace elements analysis.
Designed with low cost of ownership in mind, all three models are manufactured with a rugged enclosure and are IP54 (equivalent to NEMA 3) compliant meaning they can withstand the harshest working environments. Clear functional icons on the large (11cm/4.3”) integrated LCD touchscreen make the instrument simple and quick to use, even with gloves on and in direct sunlight. The X-MET8000 may be used for a full working day of 10-12 hours without needing to change the battery, maximising uptime. Due to its ergonomic design, the X-MET8000 is perfectly balanced and lightweight at only 1.5kg (3.3lb), minimising user fatigue.
