The X-MET8000 Geo is a handheld XRF analyser for geochemistry applications including fast on-site environmental screening, mining exploration, planning and grade control. Easy to use and designed to withstand the harshest environments and weather conditions, the X-MET8000 Geo offers results in seconds with real time data sharing for fast decision making.
The combination of our large area silicon-drift detector (SDD) and revolutionary superfast detector electronics BOOST™ technology provides up to 10 times the sensitivity of other handheld XRF models, delivering the low limits of detection required to measure critical elements accurately time after time.

The X-MET8000 is designed to withstand the harshest environments and weather conditions: it's IP54 compliant (equivalent to NEMA 3) for superior protection against dust and water and has been tested to MIL-STD-810G military standard for ruggedness. It features a large heat sink for optimum stability, even in hot environments (no need to wait for detector cooldown between analyses) and comes with a compact, rugged and waterproof case for transportation and storage.

Hitachi High-Tech now offers two models: the Expert and Optimum giving you the performance and flexibility you need.
