XRF analyser


Hitachi High-Tech Analytical Science Corporation (Hitachi High-Tech Analytical Science), a Hitachi High-Technologies Corporation wholly owned subsidiary engaged in the manufacture and sales of analysis and measuring instruments, has introduced a new entry-level hand-held X-ray fluorescence (XRF) model, X-MET8000 Smart, to offer users a more competitively priced package for the trusted X-MET brand.

With best-in-class performance, thanks to its large-area SDD detector, the new model allows users to pick up to three calibrations: alloy FP, aluminium FP and precious FP. The instrument comes with a shield window as standard, to protect the instrument from sharp objects, one battery that allows a full day of operation (10-12 h) and a power supply. Users can purchase additional accessories as needed.

The X-MET8000 Smart delivers rapid and reliable analysis and alloy identification, with over 1600 grades in the built-in library and the most comprehensive metals database as an option post purchase. Robust in design, it is IP54 and MIL-STD-810G standard compliant, as are all of the analysers in the X-MET8000 range used by thousands of businesses around the world. Users also get access to advanced data management with ExTOPE Connect, including a mobile phone app and cloud service for instant data sharing and secure storage.

Mikko Järvikivi, Product Business Development Manager at Hitachi, said: “Our latest model, the X-MET8000 Smart, allows us to offer a competitively priced entry-level product purpose-designed for scrap metal sorting and precious metal applications. We have been trusted for over 45 years to deliver best-in-class XRF analysers and our latest product introduction is part of us working in close collaboration with our customers to deliver the latest advances in analysis solutions that drive business success.”
