ProSpector 3 is the next-generation handheld X-ray fluorescence analyzer. it’s the lightest, fastest, most articulate X-ray gun Spectrometer ever made .It offers a new level of analysis accuracy, speed, and detection limits. ProSpector 3 is the smallest and lightest handheld XRF on the market with an intuitive and user-friendly software interface. Unique processing algorithms allow analyzing various types of materials including alloys, ores, soils, Gold Analyzer ,plastics, automotive catalysts etc.
Data can be transferred from ProSpector 3 to a PC directly via USB, WiFi or Bluetooth connection. MicroSD socket is also available for data storage and transfer. The detector shield protects detector Be window, the most fragile part of the instrument, from being punctured by sharp objects like wires, shavings etc.
XRF (X-ray fluorescence) is a non-destructive analytical technique used to determine the elemental composition of materials.
The X-rays hit the sample and cause the elements in the sample to fluoresce and travel back to an X-ray detector in the analyzer. The analyzer then counts them and does a lot of complicated math to give result.
On-site analysis enables real-time information and decision-making since labs often have a backlog of samples to test.
No., it’s just “point and shoot” with complete, clear results on the screen.
No, handheld XRF is not dangerous when operated as directed. Handheld XRF power is much lower than imaging X-ray equipment, so XRF users’ exposure is the same as or less than you get from naturally occurring sources.
