X-Ray Fluorescence

X-ray fluorescence is a frequently used analysis technique for the analysis of rock, sediment, and other earth material samples. Geoscientists in the field use portable equipment to get real-time material chemistry of geological samples as well as microscopes for traditional optical mineralogy and petrology.

XRF is a powerful, nondestructive technique for measuring elemental composition from magnesium (Mg) to uranium (U), from parts per million to 100%. Compact and portable XRF machines offer accurate, rapid elemental analysis on the go, making them an essential piece of equipment for anyone looking for laboratoryquality results. Prescreening using XRF enables priority sample selection for laboratory analysis, maximizing analytical budgets.

Five XRF Accessories for Mining and Geochemical Analysis Field Kit Handheld XRF analyzers can provide immediate, onsite elemental measurements for a range of mining and geochemical analysis applications, including mineral exploration, ore grade control, and environmental monitoring.

Vanta Work Station

The Vanta Work Station is a fully interlocked system that enables you to set up your handheld XRF analyzer on a benchtop or as a portable field laboratory. Simply power on the system, click the analyzer into place, close the lid, and start the test through a wireless connection or USB. While the test runs, you can perform other tasks and stay productive.

Vanta Soil Foot


Another helpful tool for hands-free analysis is the Vanta Soil Foot, which provides a stable three-point support for your XRF analyzer. This compact, cost- effective accessory is useful for the longer test times required in some mining and geochemical analysis applications.

Vanta Field Stand


If you need to test small items such as samples in cups or bags, then look no further than the Vanta Field Stand. The lightweight, portable test stand and shielded sample chamber are easy to set up, use, and pack away in just a few steps.

Vanta Holster


Keep your XRF analyzer securely by your side and ready when you need it with the Vanta Holster.

Vanta Transport Case


All Vanta handheld XRF analyzers come with a rugged, hard-shell transport case that can endure tough mining and field conditions. But if you ever need a replacement, just head to our web-store to order a new case.
