SciAps X-550 XRF Analyzer

Pine Item #52361

The premier next-generation XRF

The SciAps X-550 sets a new performance standard for handheld X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF). Weighing 2.8 lbs. (1.3 kg) with the battery, it is the lightest, fastest, most articulate X-ray gun ever made. It delivers the small size, blazing speed, and high precision of the SciAps X Series in a perfectly balanced device. It is fast on all alloys, including aluminum. The X-550 uses the industry’s most powerful X-ray tube, operating up to 3x the power in the Beam 2 setting compared to the SciAps X-505 and other handheld XRF analyzers. The unique geometry and tube power optimize performance for low atomic number measurement applications including sulfidic corrosion (low Si), phosphorus and sulfur, and aluminum alloys, as well as for residuals analysis per API 751 and 5L specifications.


Fast on alloys, including aluminums

NDT-PMI delivers PMI for most alloys in one second with excellent precision.

Optimized for key PMI applications like Residuals and Sulfidic corrosion

Great on high temp alloys and precious metals

Designed for NDT, PMI users to access hard-to-reach test locations and welds

Sort your widest variety of Al alloys in 1-2 seconds


Contaminant Phosphorus and Sulfur

Tramp Elements
