MAHWAH, N.J., March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SPECTRO Analytical Instruments announces the introduction of its new SPECTROSCOUT Portable Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (ED-XRF) analyzer that enables rapid, laboratory-class elemental analysis of environmental and geological samples even in remote locations.
The determination of elemental compositions onsite from far-flung mining and geological field operations to remote environmental locations presents substantial challenges. Real-time analytical results are essential for assessing progress. And, accuracy is a necessity at all detection levels.
"Weighing only 12 kilograms and carried with a shoulder strap, the new SPECTROSCOUT portable ED-XRF analyzer meets such challenges - in the field - with as much analytical power as top-grade laboratory benchtop analyzers," explains Dirk Wissmann of SPECTRO.
"The new SPECTROSCOUT is a small instrument, but a major step forward for end users. Its precision and speed in the field allow for faster decisions and improved productivity. Many laboratory-based measurements now become unnecessary," notes Wissmann.
The portable analyzer is ideal for onsite environmental and geological analysis. In the instance of shale gas boundary layer detection, it allows for fast data-based direction changes that maximize drilling productivity.
Overall, the SPECTROSCOUT portable ED-XRF analyzer delivers:
The new SPECTROSCOUT is highly cost-effective, and, with the improvements in productivity it delivers, it yields an outstanding return on investment. The instrument is backed by AMECARE Performance Services, a global program of proactive maintenance programs, application solutions, access to relevant experts and instrument-specific training.
The new SPECTROSCOUT Portable Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence ED-XRF Analyzer is immediately available. For more information, visit SPECTRO at http://www.spectro.com/scout.
