The new SPECTRO xSORT is a compact energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometer for the continuous, fatigue-free handheld analysis and sorting of metals.
It makes use of innovative efficient components for excitation and detection. Together with other top quality modules, they are the basis for the unique precision, speed and safety of this system.
With the SPECTRO xSORT it is possible to conduct laboratory-like analyses for up to 41 elements in a single measuring cycle that lasts only 2 seconds, except for the light elements Mg, Al, Si, they require a longer measurement time.
Only 10 seconds in addition are necessary for the sorting of various aluminum and magnesium alloys. During this process even the light elements, such as Al, Mg, Si, P and S are measured in air – without complicated additional techniques like helium flushing or vacuum, simplifying operation decidedly.
The instrument has a rechargeable battery and a robust housing. When not in use, it can be carried comfortably in the holster supplied with the system.
