#1 XRF Analysis as a Solution for Heavy Metal Testing
Importantly, X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis is a non-destructive analytical technique that has become a popular solution for heavy metal testing. It is a powerful technique that can provide rapid and accurate measurements of the elemental composition of a wide variety of materials.
In fact, XRF analysis works by irradiating a sample with X-rays, which causes the emission of secondary X-rays that are characteristic of the elements present in the sample. By measuring the intensity of these secondary X-rays, it is possible to determine the elemental composition of the sample.
Portable XRF Equipment
It is available in portable models, making it ideal for the in-field. For instance, Enviropass offers a heavy metal testing service that can conduct XRF testing on-site. This makes it ideal for use in quality control, environmental monitoring, and industrial applications, where time is of the essence.
