Portable Measurement Tool detects heavy metal in soil.

Press Release Summary:

Suited for brownfield sites, HD Rocksand™ provides flexible measurement for soil analysis. Doubly Curved Crystal (DCC) optics optimize detection limits that conserve time and effort by reducing number of inconclusive sample occurrences that require validation by off-site laboratory methods. While hands-free, pushbutton feature allows measurement of bagged and core samples, sample cup rotation feature optimizes heterogeneous sample measurement accuracy.

XOS Introduces HD Rocksand, a Break-through Technology for Heavy Metal Detection in Soil

EAST GREENBUSH, N.Y. – XOS (www.xos.com), a leading provider of mission-critical materials-analysis solutions for industries and regulators, announced today the release of its latest HDXRF® innovation, the HD Rocksand™. The HD Rocksand is a lightweight, portable, and easy-to-use solution for heavy metal detection in soil, saving users time and money.

By using patented Doubly Curved Crystal (DCC) optics, the HD Rocksand is able to deliver best-in-class limits of detection that enable users to conserve time and money by reducing the number of inconclusive samples that require validation by off-site laboratory methods.

"We're excited about the significant time and cost savings that the HD Rocksand provides users," XOS Product Manager, Kyle Kuwitzky said. "The ultra-low levels of detection coupled with the ease of use make the HD Rocksand a total solution for heavy metal soil analysis."

Brownfield sites are often very large and users often need to move around the entire site to collect measurements. With that in mind, XOS engineered the HD Rocksand to be highly portable, integrating a comfortable handle with a lightweight design that is conducive to easy movement and efficient soil analysis.

Additionally, HD Rocksand provides flexible measurement for simple soil analysis. The analyzer allows for the measurement of bagged and core samples using a hands-free, push-button feature.

For samples that require the highest precision on par with results from laboratory methods, a sample cup rotation feature is included to make accurate measurements of heterogeneous samples. Additionally, pit walls and large samples that do not fit in the portable test stand can be tested using the handheld measurement option without the need to prepare a smaller portion of the sample.
