Oxford Instruments announced the X-MET7500 Mining Analyser incorporating the latest detector technology, providing a superb combination of speed, flexibility and ease of use for on-site mining and soil analysis. The X-MET7500 Mining Analyser delivers the versatility of a laboratory, right there in the field, enabling fast and reliable analysis of the widest variety of materials, including trace elements and light elements (from Magnesium). It features a large area, silicon drift detector, optimised for mining and soil applications, coupled with detection limits down to 1 ppm for important metals. The X-MET7500 handheld analyser offers market leading versatility throughout the mining process, from exploration, mine mapping and grade control, to environmental monitoring and control.
The rugged handheld X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) X-MET Mining Analyser offers significant savings in analysis costs, as samples can be measured on-site, immediately, with little or no preparation. The data can be combined with GPS location information to further boost the productivity for exploration, mine mapping and environmental screening. The X-MET7000 series is equipped with a large and bright touch screen. It clearly displays the analysis results as a list of compounds or in an elemental form. The smart and intuitive graphical user interface is easy to learn and simple to operate. The X-MET7500 Mining Analyser can operate for up to 12 hours on a single battery charge, saving on the amount of equipment needed to be carried to often remote locations.
