EDAX Inc. Introduces Alloy Checker - The Most Powerful Hand-Held X-Ray Tube Analyzer Available

Mahwah, New Jersey - EDAX Inc., a leading supplier of hand-held portable X-ray fluorescence products, has introduced the revolutionary Alloy Checker X-ray tube analyzer.

Weighing less than 2.0 kg, the Alloy Checker incorporates the latest advances in miniaturization and digital pulse processing with a miniature X-ray tube capable of producing 35kV of accelerating energy.

The Alloy Checker revolutionizes the methodology of metals characterization. The rugged, lightweight water-resistant unit is precise, accurate, and fast. Grade identification, chemistry and spectrum collection and display are obtained within seconds of coming into contact or close proximity with a metal or alloy.

The Alloy Checker offers the capability of a multi-source instrument without the regulatory issues. The ergonomically designed unit incorporates a PDA (Personal Device Assistant) computer making the GUI user friendly regardless of the country of use. The Windows CE(TM) user interface allows for fast and simple operation.

The Alloy Checker classifies, identifies, matches, and provides concentrations of alloys within seconds. It also collects a spectrum of the sample and easily identifies elements present for further confirmation and/or review. A comprehensive standards library comes pre-loaded permitting out-of-the-box analysis of metals. And for those who need additional standards, the instrument offers an optional built-in capability that permits operators to quickly build their own User Library.

The Alloy Checker can be used on the manufacturing line for process control, on the shop floor or scrap yard for incoming/outgoing inspection, or on the dock for quality control. It can perform, store and analyze more than 10,000 assays in a three-shift operation, making it the most versatile and user-friendly metal analyzer of its kind.
