Environmental testing & compliance screening for energy/environmental sector - Monitoring and Testing - Environmental Monitoring

Compliance screening and testing is often carried out during the manufacturing phase of a product, and all the way through its disposal or recycling process. It ensures that products and materials meet specific standards or comply with international and local directives or regulations. These standards and regulations are introduced to ensure the quality and safety of a product, and to minimise or eliminate its negative impact on the environment and people. Examples of products or materials tested are: electrical and electronic equipment (for compliance with the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive), waste oils, soil (soil remediation depending on contents of toxic metals), children’s products (for compliance with Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008), etc.

The X-MET7000 Series are rugged, handheld XRF analysers that provide rapid on-site analysis of a wide range of materials in many industries. Its simple ‘point and shoot’ operation enables the determination of elements with regulated amounts such as toxic metals in soil, Cu/Cr/As in treated wood, Pb in toys, Cr/Hg/Pb/Cd/Br in electronic components and other products. It is also used to test for Lead (Pb) content in paint, and for drywall analysis. Results are available in seconds and enable the user to make time and cost-critical decisions.

The X-Supreme8000 is a Benchtop multi-element XRF analyser typically measuring Sulfur, Chlorine, and a range of transition elements such as Copper, Zinc etc in waste oils. The sample is normally measured “as-received”, and providing the elements are below prescribed limits the oil can be used as an “alternative fuel” thereby saving cost. The X-Supreme includes a 10 position sample carousel for multi-sample environmental testing.

For the electronics manufacturing industry the X-Strata coating thickness measurement analyser offers simple and reliable RoHS testing and compliance. The integrated camera allows small spot analysis to be performed with ease confirming products are manufactured to be RoHS compliant. In addition the instrument conforms to a number of recognised standards including ISO 3497, ASTM B568, DIN 50987 and IEC62321.

Compliance testing with XRF analysers guarantees accurate and rapid results for your applications such as: lead in paint screening, drywall testing, RoHS, air filter testing, sludge and soil testing and landfill.
