The X-MET series of handheld X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysers are flexible and easy-to-use for elemental analysis within production environments, manufacturing plants and scrap metals processing.

The optimised combination of a high performance X-ray tube & large area silicon-drift detector (SDD) delivers the performance required for the most demanding PMI and scrap metals applications.

The X-MET offers:

Accurate alloy identification: With over 1600 alloys included, the X-MET8000 includes the most comprehensive set of grade libraries (AISI DIN, JIS, and GB) pre-installed
Powerful data management: Store up to 100,000 results including spectra and sample image (with optional camera), share using Wifi and print via Bluetooth
Easy-to-use: Intuitive, icon-driven user interface requiring minimal operator training, coupled with a customisable results screen for fast decision making
Rugged for low cost of ownership: IP54 rating (equivalent to NEMA3) for superior protection against dust and water
Minimises downtime: Quick-swap analysis window and optional shield: no tools required to change if broken or dirty
Maximises productivity: Up and running in seconds, & 10-12 hours battery life

X-MET8000 Smart: The smart choice for the rapid sorting of common alloys

X-MET8000 Optimum: Optimised for the high speed sorting and analysis of alloys, from aluminiums to bronzes to stainless steels etc.

X-MET8000 Expert: Our top performer provides the ultimate performance for the testing of the widest variety of alloys; with superior light elements (Mg, Al, Si, P and S), tramps and penalty elements analysis. Also available for geological in the X-MET8000 Expert Geo.
