Handheld XRF

Government agencies are charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks, including toxicity and pollution, associated with consumer products and electronics. Due to its fast, non-destructive, and on-the-spot screening capabilities, handheld XRF analyzers have been chosen repeatedly by US Customs, FDA, EPA, DOE, and international customs agencies for rapid screening analysis for regulated toxic elements including lead (Pb) and cadmium (Cd).

Delta Handheld XRF Analyzer testing a consumer product

The new DELTA handheld XRF analyzer offers accurate, sensitive analysis with easy to use reporting software in an ergonomic and dependable package. XRF analyzers are routinely used for rapid screening of imported toys, jewelry, clothing, consumer electronics and other commodities to gauge compliance with HR4040, CPSIA, and EN71-3 regulations. Use what the agencies use; rely on the DELTA for accurate screening, compliance verification, on-site QC and documented traceability.

Sending samples to an outside lab for testing costs significant money and time. Bring testing in-house with the DELTA which can easily be integrated into your supply chain when items are received, or at final QC before they are shipped out. A thirty-second screening will provide you with pass/fail results right on-the-spot.
