Product Description

Building on the success of the X-MET7000 Series, Oxford Instruments (now part of Hitachi High-Technologies Group) has raised the bar with its latest handheld XRF analyser, the X-MET8000. The advantages of the X-MET8000 include:

  • Accurate alloy identification – With over 1600 alloys included, the X-MET8000 XRF analyser includes the most comprehensive set of grade libraries (AISI DIN, JIS, and GB) pre-installed
  • Easy to handle: The model is extremely light, compact and has an optional shield to prevent detector and X-ray tube damage when testing small components and sharp objects.
  • 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, Only displays information that is important to you
  • Low cost of ownership – The analyser is rugged with an IP54 rating (equivalent to NEMA3) for superior protection against dust and water
  • Minimises downtime – Quick-swap analysis window and optional shield with no tools required to change if broken or dirty
  • Maximises productivity – Up and running in seconds, and with 10-12 hours of battery life

STOP PRESS:  We can now announce the release of a new application note for the X-MET8000 series analysers, for the determination of palladium (Pd), platinum (Pt), and rhodium in spent automotive car catalysts making it ideal for the car dismantler or metal merchant dealing in scrap catalytic converters – and also the perfect partner for our Catalytic Converter recycling systems.

The X-MET8000 is based on the proven technique of energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) which gives instant, non-destructive materials analysis at the press of a trigger. Handheld XRF has become the standard elemental analysis tool for the scrap metals industry. The X-MET8000 has been engineered to be lightweight yet tough and delivers laboratory performance and high reliability, whatever the location.

X-MET is the ultimate in accuracy, but if you’re looking for a simple and fast system for analysis and sorting without the need for certification and licensing, then take a look at the Oxford Instruments Vulcan LIBS analyser.   Or operate both units in tandem for an all-round solution to fast and accurate metals analysis.

McIntyre is the sole distributor of Oxford Instruments analysers to the UK scrap metals industry. Oxford Instruments Industrial Analysis is now part of Hitachi High-Technologies Group.
