SciAps introduces Turbocharged X-300 handheld XRF

SciAps now manufactures their X model with a turbocharged option. The turbocharged X features SciAps' latest X-ray tube development. Units provide a high current (500 uA) at the lower voltage setting (up to 10 kV), resulting in a more than 5X increase in speed for low atomic number elements Si, Mg, Al, P, and S compared to other brands on the market, according to SciAps. 

Applications include:
• Silicon content in carbon steels and nickel alloys: Measure Si down to 0.02% in 5 second tests. Includes in-service steel components.
• Faster aluminum alloy sorting. Measure 0.5% Mg in 2 seconds to sort common Al alloys faster and better with X-ray.
• Measure Al, P, and S at < 200 ppm in steels and stainless in a few seconds.
• Delivers the speed and precision on stainless, high-temp alloys and brasses/bronzes that you've come to expect from X-ray.

Also available is the companion Handheld Laser-based Z-200

According to SciAps, the Z-200 is the only handheld analyzer on the planet that can measure carbon content. Units measure silicon on carbon steels, detection limit of 0.02%, in 3 second tests, and feature flow-accelerated corrosion: Measures 0.02% Cr in 3 second tests. SciAps says that dozens of power plants have switched to the Z for FAC and alloy testing to get away from restrictive X-ray regulations, and that this is excellent technology to sort the widest array of aluminum alloys with the most speed and accuracy.

How to streamline C&D waste processing to increase profitability

For C&D recyclers, waste haulers, demolition contractors and landfills, there is a growing opportunity to profit from rethinking processes. Although every operation is different, by streamlining the front end of the C&D operation processes with purpose-built technologies, recyclers can tap into new end markets, accommodate higher material volumes, stay ahead of regulatory restrictions, increase recovery rates and add commodity revenue, while decreasing labor and other costs.

Download the new eBook to learn about:

  • Finding opportunities in the alternative to landfilling C&D
  • How facilities can increase their profits from C&D
  • Using the right C&D processing technology in the right locations
