XL2 classic

Metal analyser: High performance at a low price

The handheld XRF spectrometer XL2 classic analyzes the elemental composition of metals in seconds, easily and non-destructively. All elements in the measuring range from Cl to U are identified. The integrated database contains the most common alloys and can be individually expanded. The results of the metal analysis can be read immediately on the screen. This makes the analyzer very flexible to use and ideally suited for on-site applications.

Metal analysis with the XL2 classic provides many advantages

  • Fast, non-destructive metal analysis.
  • Ergonomically fixed color display.
  • Ag tube.
  • Short analysis times.
  • Data is encrypted and cannot be manipulated afterwards.
  • Integrated CCD camera documents the test spot.
  • Rugged, waterproof, designed for rough environmental conditions.

Areas of application

This metal analyser is at home when recycling metal and with PMI (positive material identification). The instrument also offers fast and inexpensive safety when it comes to the recycling of catalytic converters.

Typical materials

  • Chrome steels, stainless steels.
  • NCT, chrome-molybdenum steels.
  • Low-alloy steels, tool steels.
  • Nickel-, cobalt-based alloys.
  • Copper, brass, bronze alloys.
  • Titanium and aluminium alloys (without identification regarding Mg, Al, Si).
  • Precious metals (jewellery alloys).
  • Platinum group elements in catalytic converters.

More Information

The XL2 Classic can also be used as an inexpensive alternative with simple RoHS-applications.
