Why choose an X-MET8000 handheld XRF analyzer?

Superior performance

The X-MET XRF analyzer provides great light elements (Mg, Al, Si, P, S, Cl) analysis, low limits of detection, and outstanding precision for results you can trust, day after day. Test a wide range of materials with its versatile standardless fundamental parameters (FP) methods, or use its empirical calibrations when results traceability and superior accuracy are needed.

Easy to use

With its large touchscreen and icon-driven user interface, the user training required to operate the X-ray spectrometer analyzer is minimal.

Superb ergonomics

Light (it’s only 1.5kg), compact, and balanced, you can use the X-MET for long periods of time with minimum fatigue.

Robust for low cost of ownership

IP54 compliant (equivalent to NEMA 3), splash water and dust proof, you can use the X-MET confidently indoors or outdoors. Tested to the MIL-STD-810G military grade standard for robustness. It also comes with a 3-year warranty. Its optional shield prevents costly detector repairs when measuring rough surfaces.

Advanced data management

Total flexibility: Store up to 100,000 results on-board the X-MET, export reports on a USB flash drive or a PC, or automatically store the X-MET data securely in the ExTOPE Connect.
