Model 2501 X-Series PortaspecPortaspec

 Sold worldwide, under the trade name PORTASPEC®, the Model 2501 X-Series Portaspec Spectrograph is a conventional (WDXRF) wavelength dispersive x-ray fluorescence analyzer which utilizes an x-ray tube as the x-ray source. Designed to fill a need for an instrumental technique that could rapidly and non-destructively analyze qualitatively and quantitatively materials in the field without the necessity of sending samples to a central laboratory. The Portaspec can also analyze powders with the appropriate optional holder. In addition to elemental chemical analysis, the Portaspec can also be used to measure the thickness coating weights of many thin coatings such as chromate and titanium on steel or aluminum sheets, and, tin and zinc on sheet steel.

The Portaspec provides analytical solutions for many industries.

These include some of the following:-

  • Coil coating industry
  • Automotive
  • Aircraft
  • Building
  • Can
  • Mining
  • Manufacturing -- Quality Control

Some examples of applications are the following:-

AUTOMOTIVE, BUILDING AND CAN INDUSTRIES. These industries use sheet metal which is coated with a pretreatment for paint, over galvanized, tin and zinc coated sheet steel to eliminate unwanted oxidation/corrosion, and to aid adhesion for paint. The coating is in most cases a chromate or titanium base solution applied directly to the metal to a specific thickness which can be verified by the Portaspec in the lab or at the job site.

MINING INDUSTRY. At the mine site, total quantitative analysis of elements is available within the range indicated in the instrument's specifications. This includes all purpose-type mines and the measurement of iron in sand for the glass industry.

MANUFACTURING. Used in Quality Department to verify metal grades for both incoming and outgoing materials.
