DELTA for Scrap Sorting and Recycling
With Newly Available X-act Count™ Technology
Superior Light Element Analysis
Traditionally a difficult area for handheld XRF, the analysis of light alloys and elements (Mg, Al, Si, P, S) can now be routine with the DELTA Alloy and Metal XRF Silicon Drift Detector (SDD) Analyzer with the newly available X-act Count™ Technology. Its integration with a 40kV Rhanode tube and automatic filtering provides fast, precise analysis of transition and heavy metals, and sensitive measurement of light element content. SmartSort maximizes testing throughput - sample by sample, testing is automatically extended or terminated - maximizing accuracy and throughput.
- Magnesium (Mg) detection down to 0.20%
- Quick and accurate quantification of S content in stainless and low alloy steels
-- Reliable identification of 303 and 416 grades
- Measures Si and Al in stainless, bronzes and other alloys
- Measures P in carbon steel down to 0.014% with exclusive 3-beam Alloy Plus calibration
- Extensive grade library combined with SmartSort provides nominal chemistry for light elements when the fastest testing speeds are required

Automates sorting decisions, enabling even inexperienced operators to maximize both speed and sorting accuracy.
- Maximizes efficiency for speed testing - automatically extends tests for light elements (Mg, Al, Si, P, S) when absolutely necessary eliminate unnecessarily long tests, and mix-up.
- Stop over-paying! SmartSort knows when to extend testing to find the Aluminum in red metals or Nickel grades.
- Nominal chemistry provided for "invisible" elements, based on grade ID.
- In just a second, get a warning that a bronze is an "aluminum bronze" or a that a copper is a "beryllium copper."
- Enables the operator to set a max tolerated concentration for tramp and residual elements in grade families.
- The DELTA comes preloaded with a tramp library based on industry standards
- The Delta reports tramp material and uses the tramp library to improve grade IDs based on residual content fluctuations.
Grade Match Messaging
- GMM offers superior user efficiency & effectiveness for:
- Immediate sorting instructions
- Reduced operator training
- Increased efficiency and higher throughput
- Assign a match message to any grade.
- Use real time or pop up messages or both.
