Xenemetrix Inc and Eastern Applied Research Inc have agreed to proceed with the co-development of a new X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometer that will meet the requirements of RoHS compliance testing needs. In addition to RoHS analysis, the analyzer will provide full qualitative and quantitative analysis of elements from Aluminum (Al) through Uranium (U).
While Xenemetrix does offer a system for RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) analysis, the recent recast of RoHS regulations will affect a wider range of industries and the new system will be a more powerful and versatile system. Affected organizations will not simply invest in a system with a single analytical focus, but will add value to their quality control and compliance test procedures on various levels.
"We are extremely excited to be part of the development of this new analyzer," noted Eastern Applied Research's Shawn M. Kramer Sr. "We have a history offering RoHS solutions to our North American clients and Xenemetrix has a strong track record of providing analyzers that are top performers for their specific interest - our clients will be very impressed when they realize the scope of capabilities the new unit will offer."
The newest XRF analyzer will be a revision of the extremely popular X-Calibur series. A variety of hardware and software adjustments will be made to exceed the lower detection limits required by RoHS regulations and offer a solution to a number of additional material analysis requirements - including quantification of low level lead content in metal samples. This project has been made a focal point of the Research & Development team at Xenemetrix and the expected role-out of the new system is November 2011.
Xenemetrix is a leading designer and manufacturer of energy dispersive x-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) and was awarded Frost & Sullivan's "Global Product Line Strategy of the Year Award in the EDXRF Analyzers Market" for the year 2010; details can be reviewed at www.xenemetrix.com. Eastern Applied Research has provided support to all models of XRF Analyzers for twenty years; including on-site services and accredited standards services through an in-house standards laboratory; information is available at www.easternapplied.com.
