Company Offers Low-Cost XRF Analyzer for RoHS Testing

Press release from: Skyray XRF

Seaford, DE – Many product lines are affected by various hazardous substance regulations (RoHS, Proposition-65, etc) and proof of compliance may be required to maintain current business while helping to develop new business opportunities. Although some affected companies may prefer the control that in-house testing provides over the hassle of outsourced compliance testing; the short-term instrument investment may be too great for them. With those budget-minded organizations in mind, Skyray XRF re-designed the compact EDX-3000 desktop x-ray fluorescence analyzer to quickly determine the concentration of lead, cadmium and other hazardous substances in product.

The EDX-3000 from Skyray XRF was initially developed for precious metal testing applications and is a popular model; commonly used to perform identification of unknown metals, alloy verification, gold purity analysis and various related tests. With the addition of an HS-Package (collimator and filters package) the EDX-3000 can provide the sensitivity required to meet the detection limits of various toxic metals regulations. The HS-Package was developed for the EDX-3000 because it is the lowest cost XRF analyzer and provides an economical option for organizations that realize the importance of compliance.

The compact unit has a chamber that is smaller than the other Skyray XRF desktop instrument (EDX-2800) but, at a fraction of the cost, will be an excellent option for organizations testing small electrical components for RoHS compliance. The new HS-Package is also an additional benefit to jewelry manufacturers that require lead content analysis to comply with California’s Proposition-65 and other ‘lead content in jewelry’ regulations; as it becomes an all-in-one testing unit providing lead detection along with coating thickness measurements, gold purity analysis and more.

“Accurate hazardous substance analyzers are important for many organizations but are a large investment,” stated Scott Kramer, Director of Sales and Marketing for Skyray XRF. “We developed this low-cost desktop option for companies that realize the importance of proving compliance and the benefits of XRF as an in-house testing.”
