Portaspec® for Assay and Bulk Material Identification

Model 2501X-2

The Portaspec X-ray Spectrograph is a very accurate, lightweight and portable instrument. Its design enables the use of x-ray analysis for such varied applications as on-site assaying and in-plant bulk material identification — without cutting samples. This versatile analyzer can be used either in the field, or as a complete laboratory system with its multi-element sequential analysis capabilities.The Portaspec can be applied to odd shapes such as castings, tubing, bars, and sheets that normally cannot fit into sample compartments. It can analyze powders and liquids with the appropriate optional holders.

The Portaspec is operated by a PC Notebook Computer, complete with Windows®-based preinstalled Software.

Easy to operate, Portapec provides fast on-the-spot, non-destructive elemental analysis and can be adapted to special on-line applications.
