XRF Analyzers
The DELTA Knows Metals And Alloys

DELTA Alloys & Metals Handheld XRF Analyzers provide highly specific material chemistry to rapidly and accurately identify alloy grades and pure metals. Get alloy chemistry and grade ID in seconds, from simple sorting to challenging grade separations, from incoming material inspection to end-product verification.

Configured with a standard package of 25+ elements, the DELTA generates alloy chemistry and grade ID in seconds. From simple sorting to challenging grade separations, the DELTA provides highly specific material chemistry to rapidly and accurately identify pure metals and alloy grades including, but not limited to:

Aluminum alloys Precious metals
Chromium-Molybdenum steels Stainless steels
Cobalt alloys Tool steels
Copper alloys Titanium alloys
Exotic alloys Wrought Aluminum alloys

Nickel/Cobalt alloys  

When you need a reliable analysis tool to provide fast and accurate Positive Material Identification (PMI), turn to the DELTA. From turnings, shavings, rods, and wires to small parts and components, to more sizeable material or structures, the DELTA provides anywhere, anytime testing with faster and more accurate results than ever before.

Ultimate Aluminum Analysis

Easily and directly sorts and grades Aluminum and Aluminum containing materials. The DELTA Premium offers unmatched Al performance.

Aluminum Alloys
  • Accurately measures Mg content in 5000 series alloys and separates Mg-containing alloys. Sorts 3003 and 3004; 1100 and 6063; 2014 and 2024
Titanium Alloys
  • Accurately determines the Al content in Ti alloys, including CP Ti cut with Al
Red Metals
  • Accurately classifies Al and Si bronzes
High-Temperature Cast Stainless
  • Measures Al in high-temp, Ni/Co superalloys
Small Component And Weld Analysis
3 Mm Spot Collimation For Weld Bead Exclusive Of Joined Material
Small Spot Collimation For PCB Component Analysis

DELTA Analyzers can be equipped with 3mm diameter spot collimation for hightly focused sample analysis. An integrated full VGA camera takes live video image of the sample tested and superimposes a spot location for precise test location. Capable of analyzing thin weld beads independent from substrate materials. Analyzes small fixture components, wires and solders.

  • Spot size can be changed in real-time by switching between the collimated 3 mm diameter spot and the standard 10 mm diameter analysis spot.
  • The sample image is saved to memory after analysis. The image can be archived along with the analysis results and exported for simple report generation.
  • The convenience of a benchtop spectrometer in a rugged handheld analyzer.

Weld Mask Adaptor

DELTA Premium Alloy Analyzer
with Weld Mask installed

The ruggedized weld mask can be attached to the front plate of the snout to collimate analysis to a 3 mm width slot, which is perfect for rapid, on-site weld bead analysis. The DELTA weld mask is engineering with layered metals to exclude substrate materials from analysis.

Exclusive DELTA Alloy Analysis Features

The DELTA is a reliable and rugged analyzer that maximizes both speed and accuracy. Other XRF systems have trade-offs. They may be able to identify alloys quickly, however inexperienced operators may not be able to determine whether an ID is incorrect, or whether longer testing is required. So how does the conscientious inspector maximize testing speed without increasing the risk of mistaken IDs or erroneous readings? Innov-X's SmartSort solution automates all these decisions, enabling even inexperienced operators to maximize both speed and inspection accuracy. This powerful feature yields optimized throughput and accuracy, making the DELTA an extremely productive XRF for alloy inspection.

DELTA For Positive Material Identification
With Newly Available X-act Count Technology

Superior Light Element Analysis
Traditionally a difficult area for handheld XRF, the analysis of light alloys and elements (Mg, Al, Si, P, S) can now be routine with the DELTA Alloy and Metal XRF Silicon Drift Detector (SDD) Analyzer with the newly available X-act Count Technology. Its integration with a 40kV Rhanode tube and automatic filtering provides fast, precise analysis of transition and heavy metals, and sensitive measurement of light element content. SmartSort maximizes testing throughput - sample by sample, testing is automatically extended or terminated - maximizing accuracy and throughput.
