by Thermo Scientific Niton Analyzers  (Jan. 1, 2004)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the sources of lead in the environment in children with elevated blood, with the help of a Field Portable X-Ray ...

Hired metals analyser ensures remediation success

by Ashtead Technology Ltd  (Aug. 21, 2012)

Cognition Land and Water Ltd, a UK based remediation specialist, has hired a portable XRF metals analyser to improve the speed of remediation work at a project in London’s Kentish Town. The project had a major impact on local residents so timescales were extremely tight but Cognition’s Charlie Jarvis says “It would not have been ...

Lead (Pb) on Surfaces by a Portable X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) Analyzer

by Thermo Scientific Niton Analyzers  (Jan. 1, 2003)

This surface sampling method was developed to provide a reliable, portable procedure that will provide prompt measurement of surface contamination levels of lead. Information gained from samples taken during an initial walk-through portion ...

Lead (Pb) in Workplace Air by Niton 700 Series Field Portable X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) Analyzer

by Thermo Scientific Niton Analyzers  (Jan. 1, 2003)

Procedure: Air samples are collected by drawing workplace air, using personal sampling pumps, through 37-mm mixed cellulose ester (MCE) filters mounted in polystyrene cassettes. Samples are prepared for XRF analyses by transferring each filter, along with the support pad, to a special air filter sample holder, specifically designed for a Niton ...

Handheld XRF analyzer, X-MET7000, for rapid, non-destructive Drywall testing – New application note from Oxford Instruments

by Oxford Instruments Industrial Analysis  (Jan. 30, 2012)

The handheld XRF analyzer - X-MET7000 - offers a rapid and non-destructive solution for screening of tainted and potentially hazardous Chinese drywall and for lead inspection. At the height of the U.S. housing boom, when building materials were in short supply, American construction companies used millions of pounds of imported drywall ...

Arsenic in Soil and CCA Treated Wood by Field Portable XRF

by Thermo Scientific Niton Analyzers  (Jul. 1, 2003)

Chromated copper arsenate (CCA) has been the most widely used wood preservative for decks, playgrounds and exterior housing structures. However, in recent years, issues surrounding the use of CCA preservative chemical have escalated, ...

Comparing Field Portable X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) To Laboratory Analysis Of Heavy Metals In Soil

by Thermo Scientific Niton Analyzers  (Jan. 1, 1)

ABSTRACT Field portable x-ray fluorescence (XRF) continues to gain acceptance as a complement to traditional laboratory testing of metal contaminated soil. The quality of data produced by field XRF varies with site conditions, soil composition, and sample preparation. Quality assurance protocols for the field method usually require that a number ...

Portable PMI Instruments

by Thermo Scientific Niton Analyzers  (Jan. 2, 2005)

Positive material identification (PMI) is a powerful methodology for assuring that manufacturing companies operate with greater profit, more efficiency, and the highest possible leveis of safety. The requirement for PMI of alloy materials in refinery systems and petrochemical plant operations has grown dramatically from the late 1970s when it was ...

EPA Method 6200 and Field Portable X-ray Fluorescence Safety

by Thermo Scientific Niton Analyzers  (Jan. 1, 1998)

Overview: These training notes provide a brief introduction to x-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis of soils. XRF has been used to characterize a broad range of materials for over twenty years. Recent advances in digital electronics and semi-conductor technology has yielded very portable XRF analyzers for field analysis of many sample types including ...

Determination of the feasibility of using a portable x-ray fluorescence (XFR) analyzer in the field for measurement of lead content of sieved soil

by National Environmental Health Association (NEHA)  (Mar. 1, 2008)

Soil samples collected in housing areas with potential lead contamination generally are analyzed with flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS) or other laboratory methods. Previous work indicates that field-portable X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis is capable of detecting soil lead levels comparable to those detected by FAAS in samples sieved ...
