Geotechnical Services, Inc. is proud to introduce the SPECTRO xSORT Precious Metals Analyzer suite to the U.S. market . As a premier consulting and analytical instrumentation sales organization dedicated to providing laboratory and field analytical solutions, Geotechnical Services has partnered with SPECTRO Analytical Instruments-a leader in elemental and metals analysis-to offer a range of instrumentation for the precious metals refining, recycling, and assaying industry .
XRF Precious Metals Analysis
For organizations that buy scrap jewelry, a higher degree of accuracy is becoming more important with rising Gold prices. SPECTRO XRF offers two very economical precious metals analysis solutions; the MIDEX precious metals analyzer, featuring the highest accuracy and micro-sample capabilities, and the xSORT handheld precious metals analyzer for high accuracy and portability. Both SPECTRO precious metals analyzers easily identify and quantify the presence of gold, platinum, silver and other precious and base metals present in jewelry, bars, pins, and other precious metals samples. Solid samples as small as 0.2 mm can also be analyzed. Most importantly, the accuracy and precision of SPECTRO precious metals analyzers are surpassed only by fire assay, with typical results within 0.15% of fire assay results.
SPECTRO xSORT Handheld Precious Metals Analyzer
The SPECTRO xSORT handheld precious metals analyzer is a powerful, lab-quality analytical instrument for rapid, nondestructive analysis of precious and base metals. SPECTRO has leveraged its expertise to create a genuinely lab-worthy precious metals analyzer in a handheld format. With just a few seconds testing time, it accurately analyzes the concentration of all platinum group and base metals contained in the sample. The high-tech silicon drift detector (SDD) used in the xSORT handheld instrument processes signals up to ten times faster than the technologies used in traditional handheld XRF instruments. The increased analytical accuracy and lower limits of detection that come with silicon drift detector instruments allow for accuracy almost as good as fire assay in a completely nondestructive technique.
SPECTRO MIDEX Precious Metals and Micro XRF Analyzer
The SPECTRO MIDEX micro-XRF Spectrometer, now in its third generation, is a purpose-built precious metals analyzer for the fast, non-destructive analysis of jewelry, bars, pins, small spots and the rapid mapping of large surfaces. The SPECTRO MIDEX offers analysis of areas as small as 0.2mm in diameter, customizable mapping, and a motor-driven XYZ table. The integrated video system with several zoom levels and sample display allows for perfect sample positioning every time. The SPECTRO MIDEX precious metals analyzer for gold assay and precious metals assay can accurately analyze silver, gold, and other precious and base metals.
SPECTRO XRF Precious Metals Analyzers are available immediately, worldwide.
