The latest portable X-ray fluorescence (pXRF) analysers, such as the Delta Premium, have been developed specifically for complete environmental investigations of metal contaminants in a wide range of industrial and domestic materials.
The high-power, high-performance, incredibly rugged Delta allows in-situ analysis in a wide range of harsh environments from remote mining and exploration sites to backyards in major urban centres.
The latest model Delta unit offers increased speed and improved sensitivity. It also lowers the limit of detection (LOD) for challenging elements such as cadmium, barium, lead, mercury and tin. An ability that is unique to the Olympus product.
The traditional use of pXRF has been for alloy identification, grading ore, mineral exploration, metallurgy and mine site remediation. The technology has been refined and is now often used by environmental consultancies specialising in contaminated land remediation and recycling companies needing to determine what materials are in waste products.
Olympus IBD is a business division of Olympus Corporation that develops and markets advanced, non-destructive testing systems, and a large selection of industrial scanners, probes, software programs, and instrument accessories.
Features include: 4 W X-ray tube, 200µA current (max) plus optimised beam settings; tight geometry for exceptional LODs and high analysis throughout; large-Area SDD option plus customised X-ray provides exceptional light element sensitivity; patent-pending automatic barometric pressure correction adjusts calibration as needed; lightning fast bootup and data acquisition; floating point processor.
The unit also provides more calculations in less time and leverages more advanced calibration algorithms; has integrated Bluetooth for data input and output and features an ergonomic rubberised handle for enhanced grip.
