RoHS and ELV Analyzers

The worldwide RoHS, WEEE and ELV directives specify strict limits on the inclusion of Lead, Cadmium, Mercury, hexavalent Chromium, poly-brominated biphenyls (PBB) and poly-brominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) in materials used within consumer electrical goods and automotives.

  • RoHS - Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment.
  • ELV - End of Life Vehicles.

X-ray fluorescence is the technique of choice for fast, non-destructive screening of manufacturing materials and parts. Analysis times are typically in the order of a few minutes for sensitivity to concentrations below 100 ppm (0.01%).

The XGT systems offer limits of detection as low as 2 ppm (0.0002%). A standard 1.2 mm analysis beam allows even small electrical components and parts to be individually analysed.
