SPECTRO xSORT - Handheld ED-XRF Spectrometers

The SPECTRO xSORT is a series of handheld ED-XRF spectrometers that delivers spectrochemical analysis and elemental testing of wide range of materials under different conditions. The spectrometers are energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence devices known for their rigidity and reliability.

The SPECTRO xSORT Alloy includes an innovative silicon PIN (Si-PIN) detector that allows identification of metals or nonmetals in seconds, producing repeatable, laboratory-grade results. It is also suitable for rapid inspection of incoming materials.

Designed for advanced metal analysis, the SPECTRO xSORT AlloyPlus comes with a top-of-the-line silicon drift detector (SDD) that performs measurements in 2s. The SDD takes no more than 10 additional seconds to sort alloys with light elements like phosphorus, sulfur, silicon, magnesium and aluminum. The SPECTRO xSORT AlloyPlus is also suitable for positive material identification (PMI) and scrap metals sorting.

With SPECTRO xSORT NonAlloy, reliable measurement and analysis of nonmetallic materials with high performance is possible. The instrument provides spot checks in a few seconds and produce laboratory-grade ppm results by holding on the sample for a long time. It is also ideal for performing environmental and RoHS compliance screening.

The SPECTRO xSORT provides very low detection limits and avoids complex sample preparation.
