EDXRF spectrometers for environmental applications - Environmental
Air pollution, soils, grounds and wastewater
Xenemetrix Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (ED-XRF) spectrometers bring expanded capabilities to environmental monitoring through the combination of proven detection methods with innovative technologies, including regulatory monitoring for compliance and research.
Workers are often exposed to toxic particulates, such as lead or uranium, in the air.
A portable air sampler obtains field samples which are analyzed by a portable or laboratory ED-XRF spectrometer. Similar air samples are taken at stacks to monitor industrial emissions. Our advanced technological capabilities help monitor treatments of waste water and measure water quality.
The measurement of the elemental composition of a particulate matter is a key factor in understanding the long-term health effects of pollution, related regulatory compliance, environmental protection, and the waste water treatment process.
Other key implementations are emission control in marine environment, heavy machinery and transportation sectors, monitoring levels of Sulfur in oil products, restrictions of hazardous materials in the electronics and toys industries, and much more.
Allows to measure a wide range of elemental concentrations: C(6)-Fm(100), without the need for sample preparations(heating or destroying the sample). Samples can be measured in the form of loose powders or pressed into pellets and ready for measurement within seconds.
ED-XRF can measure larger sample volumes resulting in a better characterization of end products and provides high accuracy and precision with excellent detection limits usually starting from 0.1 – 1 mg/kg.Xenemetrix Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (ED-XRF) spectrometers from are simplest, most accurate, non-destructive and economical analytical systems.
