SciAps X-5 XRF Alloy Analyzer

The totally reengineered X-5 is the highest performing XRF on the market that features the classic PiN diode detector technology. It offers best-in-class analytical performance and speed for this detector platform, operating at rates 2X or higher than other brands.


Need optimal analysis on alloys, including common aluminums? SciAps’ powerful, miniaturized X-ray tube combined with highly advanced internal geometry yields fast, precise results for a suite of transition and heavy metal elements between Ti and Bi.

X-5 utilizes the original old school PiN diode technology X-ray for great basic analysis of transition and heavy metals. For those who don’t need to measure Mg, Al, Si, S, or P, SciAps X-5 is the perfect choice. SciAps has re-engineered this classic detector technology and equipped it with more features: a built-in, high-resolution camera for sample viewing, such as welds; a macro-camera for photo-documentation or 2D/3D bar code reading and storage; and global connectivity to share results instantly using Bluetooth/ Wi-Fi on a familiar Android platform.

The X-5 includes the same advanced X-ray tube technology as other SciAps X Series models (operating at 40 kV max) for testing, that includes Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn, W, Ta, Hf, Re, Se, Au, Pb, Bi, Zr, Mo, Pd, Ag, Cd, Sn, and Sb. More elements can be added upon request.
