SciAps X-555 XRF Analyzer

SciAps X-555 is Premium performance begins with the most advanced handheld XRF technology available, led by a 55 kV X-ray tube for extra low detection limits on key elements like Ag, Cd, Sn, Sb, and Ba.Up to three automated beam settings provide optimal performance across the entire periodic table from Mg to U. All in a rugged instrument with state-of-the-art software and outstanding thermal dissipation.


In Use Globally SciAps X-555


Best-in-class light element performance for ultra low detection limits of elements like Mg, Al, Si, P, and S, while also packing enough power to achieve impressive precision on heavy elements like pathfinders Ag, Sn, Sb, and rare earth elements.


Appropriate filtering to optimize sensitivity — 2x better analysis of cadmium detection than any other XRF!  Packs the industry’s most powerful X-ray tube for superior limits of detection—especially for cadmium, silver, tin, antimony and barium. When combined with the new Z-901 Beryllium, get 13 EPA Priority Pollutant Metals. Operators can upgrade the Z-901 Lithium to include lithium, boron, carbon, nitrogen, fluorine, and sodium in their tests, too.

Regulatory Markets

Next-generation connectivity, test data management and reporting for the full range of compliance testing applications, including RoHS, Halogen Free, CPSIA, and lead paint in children’s playgrounds. State-of-the-art data management incorporated into a flexible Android system allows for the greatest customization and data management capabilities.

Electric Vehicle and Strategic Metals

The 55 kV operation, rather than the industry typical 50 kV, delivers higher performance for critical “light” REEs and some “heavy” REEs, making it a superior option for REE analysis globally.

SciAps XRF analyzers are the lightest ever made, weighing in at just under 3 lbs. with battery. The durable aerospace-grade aluminum frame passes the Oops Test and the falling-from-a-35-foot-tower test. Redesigned housing with improved heat dissipation allows for high throughput testing that our customers demand. A narrow, slender form factor accesses the toughest test locations, with a 2.7″ display for rear viewing of grade and chemistry.


Test faster SciAps X-555

If your XRF is using either a 45 or 50kV tube, the detection limits are from 2-30 ppm, depending on the elements. Given the correlation between LOD (detection) and LOQ (quantification), this means that for a 2 ppm LOD, the LOQ is around 6-7 ppm. This will take upwards of three minutes per sample, which can mean a long, hot day. The SciAps X-555 cuts this data collection time in half. And the 55 kV X-ray tube allows for extra low detection limits and precision on key elements like Ag, Cd, Sn, Sb and Ba, making it especially well-suited for RCRA applications and EPA Method 6200. Up to three automated beam settings are designed for optimal performance across the entire periodic table from Mg to U. It’s great for other critical environmental metals: As, Cr, Co, Cu, Pb, Hg, Ni, Se, Tl and more.

Carry less

If your XRF analyzer weighs more than 4 lbs., then you are carrying around heavier equipment than you need to be. SciAps X-555 weighs 2.98 lbs. with the battery. It’s the lightest handheld analyzer on the market, in a rugged aerospace-grade aluminum body for maximum durability.


Test non-stop SciAps X-555

The X-500 Series kickstand is a lightweight accessory that holds the instrument in position during in situ analyses. The operator can set it in position, start the analysis, and go do other tasks while the data is collected.[/caption]If you have to find some shade and wait for the instrument to cool off before continuing to collect data, then you are wasting time on the job and probably becoming grumpy. Many older (and even “newer”)  handheld analyzers are using outdated, or just poor, hardware designs that cannot properly dissipate heat, which leads to instrument failure in warm temperatures. The X-555 uses the latest software, materials and engineering for improved performance in high ambient temperatures and outstanding heat dissipation.


Customize for your job

“The X-555 doesn’t make compromises. It doesn’t compromise size for stability or heat dissipation. It doesn’t compromise speed for detection limits. Users are not limited to the analytical formulas programmed into the instrument, but instead can make their own empirical calibration curves if they so choose,” Johnson says. Optional Profile Builder software for laptop, tablet or PC will, in essence, double your instrumentation with powerful benchtop functionality.
