Handheld XRF Analysers

X-MET Range

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.

Benefits
  • Ultimate performance for reliable alloy identification and chemistry: fast, accurate analysis for high speed sorting
  • Easy to use: proven point-and-shoot simplicity
  • Rugged for low cost of ownership: IP54 compliant for superior protection against dust and water
  • Powerful data management
  • Optimised calibrations for results you can trust
  • Extensive, customisable grade library for accurate alloy identification
  • HERO™ heat resistant protective window: allowing direct measurement of hot samples, up to 400ºC
iOS App

x-met-and-oiconnect-newsShare your X-MET test results on-the-spot with the OiConnect app

The OiConnect app allows X-MET users to share their test results as soon as they are acquired, without having to go back to the office and/or connect to a computer.

Once downloaded on the user’s iOS mobile device (phone, tablet), the OiConnect app grabs the X-MET8000’s test data in real-time, so that it can be shared without delay via e-mail, instant message, etc. with colleagues, suppliers and customers alike. Photos and other useful information (e.g. weight, price, batch number, and order details) can be added before the data is sent so that transactions can be completed quickly. Unlike other solutions available, there is no need to connect to a computer to generate a report and/or forward the data. All that is required is a WiFi or mobile data connection.
