PortaSpec® XLE - Light Element Analysis in Central Lab

PortaSpec® XLE

PortaSpec® XLE is designed to fill a need for an instrumental technique that could rapidly and non-destructively analyze light elements in a central laboratory or in the plant using wavelength dispersive X-ray (WDXR) fluorescence. The PortaSpec® XLE has the ability to analyze powders and solids with its included single position sample holder. It also has a single element option for Al, Si, P, S, Cl, K, Ca, or Zr and can measure Zirconium or Phosphorus pretreatment.

The PortaSpec® XLE is operated by a PC Notebook Computer, complete with Windows®-based preinstalled Software.


Powering Cianflone’s full line of Portable X-ray Spectrographic Analyzers is PortaSpec® PCS Software—a Windows®-based application that provides excellent records of prior analyses, improves productivity and simplifies analysis. PortaSpec® PCS Software is designed for multiple industries, including tubing and bar stock, mining and minerals, petroleum, high- and low-alloy steel, scrap metals, glass, synthetic and natural fibers, building materials, chemical research, alloy research, automotive, nuclear testing, and welding.


Fixed Single Element (FSE)

 When analysis of a single element is all that is required, the FSE configuration provides a value-engineered solution that is easy on the budget while maintaining the same precision as more expensive units.  While lacking the flexibility to be used on multiple elements, the fixed single element analyzer performs at the same high level of precision and provides accurate results targeted to single element analysis.
