Portable and Handheld XRF FAQs

What is handheld XRF?

Handheld XRF analyzers are portable XRF devices that can be used on location for immediate, lab-quality results to help you determine the next course of action and where it is needed.

What is a handheld XRF analyzer used for?

An XRF analyzer is used for applications where you need to identify the material chemistry or alloy grade of a sample. The ability to take a lab technique into the field with handheld XRF enables the analysis of samples that are too large, unwieldly, or costly to transport to the lab. On-site, portable XRF analysis also provides real-time information for fast decision-making.

What can a handheld XRF analyzer detect?

A handheld XRF analyzer can measure elements from magnesium (Mg) to uranium (U). You can point an XRF analyzer at almost anything and get a result. XRF can test a wide range of industrial materials such as cement or coal, as well as household materials such as jewelry, paint, and consumer goods.

What are common XRF applications?

Thanks to their portability and lab-quality results in the field, handheld XRF analyzers are used across a range of industries for purposes such as scrap recycling, positive material identification (PMI), manufacturing quality control, compliance screening, mining, geochemistry, environmental assessments, and precious metal testing.

How accurate is handheld XRF?

Vanta™ handheld XRF analyzers are powerful XRF instruments that can measure the elemental composition from magnesium (Mg) to uranium (U), from parts per million to 100%.

How much does a handheld XRF analyzer cost?

A handheld XRF analyzer’s price is influenced by many factors, including the detector type (PIN or silicon drift detector), X-ray detector size, anode material, and accessories. The best way to determine cost is to figure out which elements you need to measure.
