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.


Hochsensitives Röntgenfluoreszenzgerät für qualitative und quantitative Analyse inklusive eines vollwertigen Röntgenmikroskopes mit Imaging Funktionen.

Das XGT-5200WR wurde speziell für WEEE/RoHS/ELV Anwendungen mit hoher Sensitivität bei der Bestimmung der fünf Elemente (Pb/Hg/Cd/Cr/Br) entwickelt und verfügt über zusätzliche Imaging Funktionen.
