Handheld XRF provides accurate and rapid elemental composition determination without any sample damage, enabling the swift identification and verification of material composition in many fields, from geology to industrial applications. With its portability, ease of use, and reliability, a handheld XRF analyzer is indispensable for quality control, research, material sorting and more.

Bruker has boosted productivity and profits with their handheld xrf analyzer for many businesses all over the globe. The company has been a trailblazer in XRF technology since 1982.

The Benefits of the Bruker Handheld XRF Analyzer

Bruker’s S1 TITAN XRF spectrometer has unique advantages that improve workflow, efficiency and maximizes Return of Investment (ROI) at your enterprise:

  • Weight: 1.5 kg or 3.3 lbs (including battery) - light enough for all day handheld operation

  • Extremely fast and accurate: A measurement time of only 2-3 seconds for a standard alloy and 10-30 seconds for alloys with light elements

  • Very low Limits of Detection (LOD)

  • Equipped with a Silicon Drift Detector (SDD)

  • Integrated touchscreen

  • 50 kV X-ray tube

  • SharpBeam™ optimized X-ray geometry

  • SMART Grade™ timing

Bruker's XRF elemental analyzer comes in five different models – 800, 600, 500, 300 and 200 - which can all be provided with application-specific custom calibrations, ensuring we can find the perfect solution for your specific needs.

Bruker’s S1 TITAN as a Portable XRF Gun

The new-generation of handheld XRF analyzers, such as the “point-and-shoot” Bruker S1 TITAN, typically takes just a few seconds to test each sample, although an exhaustive ppm scan may require full minutes. Today, advances in XRF analysis pioneered by Bruker have began to close the gap in performance between our handheld XRF analyzers and big, immobile laboratory systems (which until recently used to be the only accurate way to perform material analysis).

Our handheld XRF guns are designed for use in a huge range of different environments. The portable XRF gun’s body is impermeable to moisture, dust or dirt ingress, protecting the analyzer from the environment - the S1 TITAN is IP54 rated. The portable gun can also be provided with a sample stand for the scanning of small or complex samples.

The Bruker S1 TITAN family can be provided with industry-specific, pre-defined calibrations (eg. foralloy, gold, precious metals, bulk material, mining, soil, light element alloys, restricted materials analysis) or Bruker can provide a custom calibration for your specific application.

Please let us know your requirements. A Bruker product specialist will be glad to address your query.

Handheld XRF Analyzer - Answers to your Frequently Asked Questions

How does a handheld XRF analyzer work?

A handheld XRF analyzer works by emitting X-rays onto a sample material. When the X-rays interact with the sample, they cause it to emit characteristic X-ray fluorescence. By analyzing the energy and intensity of this fluorescence, the device can determine the elemental composition of the material, providing quick and accurate results without damaging the sample.

What are the advantages of using a handheld XRF analyzer?

Using a handheld XRF analyzer offers numerous advantages. Handheld XRF systems facilitate the non-destructive and rapid elemental analysis of materials, reducing the need for expensive and time-consuming laboratory testing. Additionally, their portability and ease of use make them a practical tool for on-site analysis in many industries, ensuring quick decision-making and thorough quality control.

Which industries use portable XRF guns?

Portable XRF analyzers are used in a wide range of industries for different applications due to their versatility and accuracy. Industries such as mining, geology, environmental monitoring, manufacturing, and scrap metal recycling rely on these devices for the elemental analysis of materials. Handheld XRF systems are also used in fields like archaeology and art conservation, where they provide insight into the materials used in create cultural items, and quality control in manufacturing to ensure product quality and compliance with industry standards.

How accurate are handheld XRF analyzers for material analysis?

Handheld XRF analyzers are highly accurate. They provide precise elemental composition data, making them valuable for quality control, research, and industry. Their accuracy is well-established, and they are trusted for quick and reliable results without the need for destructive testing.

Can a handheld XRF analyzer detect specific elements in samples?

Yes, a handheld XRF analyzer can detect specific elements in samples with a high degree of accuracy. Our handheld XRF systems excel at identifying and quantifying a wide range of elements, from heavy metals to light elements. Bruker is an expert on detecting specific elements in samples with portable XRF devices such as the S1 TITAN.
