Scrap Metal Sorting

Sorting scrap metal used to be the job of experienced metal sorters, but that has all changed since the introduction of handheld XRF technology. Bruker provides a fast, reliable way of detecting the valuable content of scrap as well as detecting unwanted or "tramp" elements - without the need for highly-trained operators. The size of the sample isn’t a problem – the analyzer can measure everything from single wires up to big heat-exchangers and other large structures. It’s a simple case of point-and-shoot.

 

TITAN Detector Shield - The ULTIMATE defense against punctured detectors, Guaranteed!

  • Do you analyze metal turning or fine wires with your XRF gun?
  • Have you ever punctured your XRF gun’s detector?  


Then you know that the cost to repair a detector can range from $7,000 to $10,000…plus potential down-time.

The TITAN Detector Shield can minimize these risks! Learn more about the TITAN Detector Shield.
