At Pine, we specialize in delivering total equipment solutions and providing technical advice on what to rent, and how to use it; the availability of our rental fleet is second to none, and all our equipment is always tested and delivered ready to use.
XRF hire from Pine; Capable of undertaking a variety of both industrial and environmental monitoring applications, the Innov-X Alpha PMI Analyzer is an X-Ray Fluorescence Analyzer (XRF) combined with a HP iPAQ mini PC. Utilising a rugged X-Ray tube rather than radioactive isotopes, the Innov-X Alpha uses the iPAQ library to determine alloy chemistry and grade ID in metals, metal concentrations and type in soils as well as testing components for both RoHS and WEEE directives. Providing instant, accurate readings, this hand-held analyzer reduces costly laboratory testing and allows quicker testing. The XRF is available to rent on a day or weekly basis, please contact the office for more details or click quote.
The Thermo Scientific Niton XLt 898D Analyzer series charts new territory in portable XRF analysis, providing the user with the speed and efficiency of x-ray tube excitation, while greatly reducing the regulatory demands typically encountered with isotope-based systems.
Only Available in Canada
The Thermo Scientific Niton XLp 700 PMI Analyzer series offers a full suite of excitation options including: miniaturized x-ray tube for high performance and reduced regulatory requirements. For those customers with project requiremnets that call for the highest performance available in field portable XRF, Niton offiers the XLp 702 with a 40mCi 109 source. This isotope provides the user with the best sensitivity for many of the crucial elements measured in bulk material, including lead, mercury, and arsenic. Available with an optional 14mCi 241Am source, this configuration is the ideal high performance environmental analyzer for heavy metals testing.
See and feel the DELTA difference. The analyzer is compact and robust from probe to trigger to display, with sophisticated XRF technology that's better, faster, and more responsive. From initial boot-up to the final result, the DELTA is the optimum solution for all your analytical needs. The DELTA line gives you the ultimate experience in field-portable handheld XRF analysis, providing fast measurements with accuracy, precision, detection limit, and light element measurement capabilities built into a compact single-chassis frame wrapped in robust industrial-grade body casing.
The DELTA is a reliable and rugged analyzer that maximizes both speed and accuracy. Other XRF systems have trade-offs. They may be able to identify alloys quickly, however inexperienced operators may not be able to determine whether an ID is incorrect, or whether longer testing is required. So how does the conscientious inspector maximize testing speed without increasing the risk of mistaken IDs or erroneous readings? Innov-X's SmartSort solution automates all these decisions, enabling even inexperienced operators to maximize both speed and inspection accuracy. This powerful feature yields optimized throughput and accuracy, making the DELTA an extremely productive XRF for alloy inspection.
Olympus Vanta VCR Analyzer is our most advanced handheld X-ray fluorescence (XRF) device. These rugged, powerful, and intuitive instruments provide rapid, accurate element analysis and alloy identifications to customers who demand laboratory-quality results in the field.
Vanta handheld XRF analyzers are some of the toughest devices Olympus has ever made. Their rugged and durable design makes them resistant to damage for greater uptime and a lower cost of ownership. With intuitive navigation and configurable software, the Vanta series are easy to use with minimal training for high throughput and fast return on investment. Olympus’ innovative Axon™ technology means Vanta analyzers give you accurate results and help boost productivity no matter the environment or working conditions.

Pine is excited to add the Oxford Instruments ARC-MET8000 alloy analyzer to its rental fleet. The ARC-MET8000 provides near-laboratory quality analysis, and is considered the industry standard for portable metals analysis for alloy grade verification. The unbeatable performance and precision of this unit will not be found anywhere else because Pine is the only company to offer the ARC-MET8000 for rent!
Thanks to its light weight and small size, the PMI-MASTER Smart can be conveniently carried, making the analysis independent, especially in hard to reach places. Despite its compact dimensions it offers high analysis performance.
The rechargeable battery pack provides enough power for 7 h in standby or the analysis of some hundred samples in SPARK and/or ARC mode. The PMI-MASTER Smart can also be operated using the external power supply/charger, with or without battery and even when recharging the battery pack.
Simply hold the probe to the sample, push the trigger and read the result. The alloy grade and the full chemical composition appear within a few seconds on the integrated touch screen display. Tailored to your specific application, different operation
modes offer complete analysis, grade identification or sorting of metals. The PMI-MASTER Smart identifies the metal grade automatically and indicates where concentration limits are exceeded.
True portable metal analysis
The PMI-MASTER Smart provides a breakthrough for OES metal analysis in hard to reach places. It is the consequent next development step of Oxford Instruments’ market-leading mobile OES metal analyser portfolio, incorporating the know-how of the PMI-MASTER series and concept of the ARC-MET analysers. As a result, the PMI-MASTER Smart is the only true portable high performance optical emission spectrometer available. It is a rugged optical emission spectrometer for the precise analysis of key elements, rapid material verification, PMI and sorting of different metals. The PMI-MASTER Smart offers high analytical performance, unparalleled portability, striking convenience and ease of use.
Due to minimized Argon consumption a 1 liter bottle is sufficient for several analysis (Linde Ecocyl recommended).
