Precious metal analyser

  • Analyses up to 21 elements simultaneously with just one measurement.
  • Determines fineness and added metals of precious metal alloys.
  • Identifies gold, silver and platinum alloys.
  • Analyses yellow, red and white gold.
  • Non-destructive analyses.
  • Delivers fast and exact results.
  • Displays alloys 333 (8kt)/-, 375 (9kt)/-, 585 (14kt)/-, 750 (21kt)/-, 900(22kt)/-, etc.
  • Safe differentiation of diamond from cubic zirconia and lead glass.
  • Screen compliance with legal requirements (e.g. ban on cadmium).

Areas of application

The XL2 100 is the perfect analyser for the purchase of old gold, for coin dealers, jewellers, jewellery dealers, pawn shops, auction houses and precious metal trading. Fast and precisely it determines without destruction the alloy composition of large and small objects of value. You can take the instrument wherever you go. The fineness of all precious metals such as gold, silver, platinum, palladium and rhodium are determined easily and precisely. Even through typical gilding, brass, tombac or iron can be detected. Our products offer you the security you need when it comes to precious metal analysis.

Typical materials:

  • gold and platinum jewellery
  • dental gold / dental alloys
  • small and large silverware
  • bars, coins, scrap gold
  • white gold, yellow gold, red gold
  • palladium alloys and other precious metal alloys
