The best metric for understanding the true cost of implementing and managing a positive material identification (PMI) program is the total cost of ownership (TCO). Designed so that additional costs beyond the purchase price are minimized, the Olympus Vanta XRF analyzers help reduce overall TCO.
Vanta analyzers help to reduce:
Capital Expenditure (CAPEX) Costs
Inspection jobs are kept profitable by cost-effective and high-quality Vanta models.
It is possible to remotely share an analyzer’s screen with colleagues for the purposes of training or assistance. Real-time data is provided via the OSC, in order to reduce the time taken from data acquisition to the creation of a report. Inspectors are able to be quickly trained either remotely or on-site, courtesy of the simple UI.
These analyzers are built in order to be able to sustain a 4-foot drop test (MIL STD-810 G) IP65 or IP64, and are water and dust resistant. They have either an ultra-thick Kapton® window or a Shutter (VCR/VMR), which help to protect the X-ray detector. There is also built-in GPS so that the Olympus Scientific Cloud (OSC) provides location tracking. Notifications are automatic and software upgrades are immediate, courtesy of the OSC.
End User Costs
Both the software and hardware is easy-to-learn and simple to use. Data management is seamless, using either the Olympus Scientific Cloud, USB, or wireless. There is dedicated technical support and applications.
A full-service rentals department is available 24 hours a day to help in emergency situations. Loaner units can be used for warranty repairs and your instrument fleet’s health can be monitored using the Olympus Scientific Cloud.
5-year warranties exist for the X-ray tubes and 3-year warranties exist for the instrument. Non-warranty repairs are easily prepared for, courtesy of tiered service pricing. Repair quotes are given quickly and most repairs are completed within 2 weeks. There are dedicated expert available in both Massachusetts and Texas.
Vanta Analyzer Models
L Series— Precious metals, chromium-molybdenum, nickel, stainless, low alloy (the majority of refinery and plant alloys)
C Series— The standard-resolution detector adds phosphorus, sulfur, silicon, aluminum, and magnesium.
M Series— The highest resolution detector available from Vanta, this adds the lowest detection limits for phosphorus, sulfur, silicon, aluminum, and magnesium.
