Built on the Android platform for global connectivity, you can manage your data and fleet anywhere, print or email results seamlessly. And visibility? An integrated camera with video for sample viewing is included with all models, and the latest smartphone display provides easy viewing in all lighting conditions.


SciAps Premium XRF Analyzers

The X-550 sets a new performance standard for handheld XRF. Weighing 2.8 lbs. (1.3 kg) with the battery, it’s the smallest, lightest, fastest XRF analyzer on the market. It’s fast on all alloys and as good on aluminums as it is on high temps for the scrap market, and it comes with fully loaded apps for NDT (Residuals, Sulfidic Corrosion, Alloy).

The X-550 uses the industry’s most powerful X-ray tube, operating up to 3x the power in the Beam 2 setting compared to the SciAps X-505 and any other handheld XRF analyzers. The unique geometry and tube power optimize performance for low atomic number measurement applications including sulfidic corrosion (low Si), phosphorus and sulfur, and aluminum alloys, as well as for residuals analysis per API 751 and 5L specifications.

What’s the difference between the premium X-550 and X-505? The answer is simple: Speed on low atomic number elements such as Mg, Al, Si, P and S. When the X-550 runs at about 3x the X-ray power in the “Beam 2” setting (also known as the low voltage setting) compared to the X-505 or other handheld XRF analyzers, the measured intensities from Mg, Al, Si, P and S (plus K, Ca and Cl in other apps) are 3x higher, producing 3x faster measurements with the X-550.


SciAps Value-priced XRF Analyzer Series

Want the accuracy and throughput of the premium models, but in a lower-priced series of analyzers? Then consider the totally re-engineered “value” series, with improved heat dissipation, reduced weight, new user-interface. All internal electronics now use less power and operate at higher temperatures—no drift or shutdown.

  • Redesigned heat sinking, can now operate continuously up to 110F (43C) ambient temperatures
  • New internal circuit boards
  • New housing and metal components
  • Up-to-date software, user interface, and full recalibration

X-250X-200 Silicon drift-detector (SDD) models. Competitively priced for every performance requirement. This platform weighs about 3.4 lbs, making it about 0.5 lbs heavier than the X-505/550 platform, but still with industry leading speed and precision. The X-250 is the value version of the X-550. The X-200 is the value version of the X-505, similarly sacrificing a little speed on Mg, Si, Al, P and S.

X-50 The “old school” PiN diode technology. Great basic analysis of transition and heavy metals. A great value for analyzing basic alloys including stainless, high temps, copper alloys.
