Create an economical One Box for YOUR sorting needs
The “sort everything” package! Combines world’s leading XRF metals sorter with breakthrough LIBS testing in argon or air. Go faster, and get those upgrades. And great customer service.
We now have a One Box for your needs and your price point.
Use the Z for dedicated aluminum sorting, or for measuring Li, Be and/or B in alloys. The Z is optionally available as the world’s only “dual burn” LIBS if you require higher precision for some alloys. It may also be configured to measure carbon, for sorting out carbon steels or L versus H-grade stainless.
For everything else – high temps, stainless, red metals, including fast aluminum, there’s the X.
Either unit backs up the other for peak demand. All in one economical package with the same batteries, charger and cables, running on Android OS with the ease of a smart phone.
Start with our powerful LIBS
Z 900 Series LIBS for 15-20 elements in 7 common alloy bases. Use argon-purge to sort and sell mill-ready aluminum scrap. Measures elements that XRF can’t, like Li in aluminum; Be in coppers and aluminums; B in nickels, duplex steels, and aluminums.
Rapid material sorting or grade identification. (Add the dual-burn option at any time.) Analyze your aluminum alloys with high precision AND sort your high temps and stainless —all without an X-ray source!
World’s only LIBS for rapid material sorting or grade identification that flips to argon-purge when you really need precision, especially for selling direct to mills. Measures elements that XRF can’t: Li in aluminum; Be in coppers and aluminums; B in nickels, duplex steels, and aluminums.
The most efficient tool for XRF operators who only need the occasional carbon measurement, Z-901 CSi is a compact handheld dedicated strictly to C and Si in steels, including L-grade stainless.
For those who need to measure lithium in alloys, the Z-902 has an extended range to 625 nm to measure Li emission.
Pair it with our industry-leading XRF
The world’s lightest, smallest, fastest, high precision family X-ray analyzers. Just under 3 lbs., it’s sleek and smart, lightweight and tough.
X-550 Scrapper XRF is the ultimate lightweight, durable scrap sorter. The Aluminum App sorts faster than any other analyzer with 1-2 second tests for Mg, Si. As always: fast, precise chemistry on high temps, stainless, red metals, specialty alloys and turnings. Improve your economics with fine sorting of aluminum, fast testing for low P and S in copper and ferrous, and low LOD on tramp elements.
The star of the fleet. No compromises. Sorts aluminum alloys, even those that differ by small amounts of Mg or Si, in 1-2 seconds. As fast as stainless, high temps and red metals. No other X-ray gun can make this claim. The X-550 includes our patent pending Aluminum App.
Second only to the X-550, the X-505 can measure all elements but with slightly longer testing times for Mg, Al, Si, P and S. By far the fastest of any X-ray gun (except the X-550) on aluminum.
The most economical model. Perfect choice for basic sorting of stainless, high temps and red metals. It does not measure Mg, Al, Si, P or S. For aluminums, sort by 2000, 3003-type, 7050, 7075, 7000-type and MLCs.
When to use laser instead of X-ray?
Carbon: Sort your ferrous by carbon content, and segregate your stainless into L and H grades.
Aluminum scrap: The Z handles aluminum and magnesium scrap with speed and precision due to its excellent performance on Mg, Al and Si. Laser is especially recommended for aluminum that is anodized or contains surface dirt. The Z will burn through the surface layers. X-ray requires a grind in these cases.
Light elements: Use Z when measuring elements Li, Be, B, C in alloys, or <0.2% Mg. For example, Li, Be and/or B in Al alloys, Be in red metals, or B in nickel, stainless, or other alloys.

Service simply costs less
We’ve always had the lowest service costs in the industry — common repairs are typically half the industry average. But service starts with instruments that are proven durable, and especially for scrap recyclers, our XRF includes a composite reinforced nylon safety grid that defends the detector and avoids punctures from turnings. After purchase, our goal is to promote the longevity of your instrument. SciAps Service and Calibration Program includes factory calibration, software upgrades, and hardware audit to keep your analyzer working productively and minimize surprises. And no call centers. Our staff is here to answer your questions.
SciAps Cloud Services
Monitor activity and collect results from your yard, or across your entire fleet, and access your data from anywhere. SciAps Cloud Services operates in real time as the instruments are used. Generate reports and photos of the material, from single tests or large batches. All data is archived in a remotely accessible repository so you can instantly reference a result from any site, or answer a customer question about a recent delivery.
