Scrap handling operations can be thrown into disarray when sorting isn’t done properly on the line. Whether it is metals being combined erroneously or tramp material being missed in the process, businesses need to ensure that their product – and their profit – is protected.
Oxford Instruments has launched Vulcan, a handheld analyzer using LIBS (laser induced breakdown spectroscopy) technology. The new Vulcan includes advanced reporting tools and is designed as an ergonomic, balanced handheld LIBS analyser with a simple user interface, for the rapid identification of a wide range of alloys in scrap metal processing/recycling markets and for manufacturing plant applications within multiple industries world wide.
Oxford Instruments has launched a new app, OiConnect, for fast data sharing on-site for use with their range of X-MET8000 handheld X-ray fluorescence (HHXRF) analyzers. The OiConnect app allows X-MET users to share their test results as soon as they are acquired, without having to go back to the office and/or connect to a computer.
Oxford Instruments has added two new models to its successful new generation XMET8000 series of handheld XRF analyzers for the scrap metal processing and recycling markets. Along with the X-MET8000 Expert (available since September 2014), the new models X-MET8000 Optimum and X-MET8000 Smart enable reliable, uninterrupted alloy identification, all-day, in the harshest environments, adding value at every stage of the metal recycling process.
Who Says Materials Analysis Can’t Be Fun? Oxford Instruments brings “smart science” to the “smart phone”.
Everyone who works or studies in the world of materials and elemental analysis agrees on two guiding principles: Accuracy of analysis is vital and speed of analysis is critical where time equals money. Oxford Instruments’ new “Materials Analysis eXpert” App just released for smartphone and tablet ticks both boxes, delivering an easy-to-use app combining a handy periodic table with a metal alloy guide and more.
The new X-MET8000 handheld (X-ray fluorescence) XRF analyzer, the latest from Oxford Instruments, is designed to help scrap metal processing and recycling operations boost their throughput and profitability, enabling reliable, fast, uninterrupted alloy identification, all-day long, in all weather.
Oxford Instruments Raises the Bar for Scrap Metals Analysis with New, High-Performance Handheld XRF Analyser
Oxford Instruments’ X-MET7000 is designed to deliver faster than ever results for materials analysis, verification and screening. This unit has a totally new, fast user interface, new reporting power and extended battery life for all day materials analysis.
Ideal for scrap sorters, the X-MET5100 X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzer is engineered to ensure very fast laboratory-quality analysis of aluminum and titanium alloys, as well as copper, nickel and steel, with extremely high levels of light element capability and sensitivity. These units combine a silicon drift detector with a powerful 45kV X-ray tube for fast, highly accurate measurement.
The X-MET5100 X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzer combines a silicon drift detector (SDD) with a powerful 45kV X-ray tube. This technology delivers fast, highly accurate measurement and enables light elements such as Mg, Al and Si to be measured without the need for complex vacuum pump or helium tank attachments.
