X-MET8000 Expert Geo for the rapid field analysis of COLTAN

The need for a rapid, simple analysis (carried out by non-laboratory staff) at mines makes a handheld X-ray analyzer the ideal analytical technique for analysis of Coltan.

The solution

Hitachi High-Tech’s X-MET8000 Expert Geo provides fast and accurate on-site analysis of a wide variety of mining sample types, such as drill cores, rocks, cuttings and powders. Results are available in seconds, enabling users to make decision on the spot and reduce costs significantly by reducing the number of samples sent to off-site laboratories.

 

 

When mineralogy varies significantly between sites, users can use the X-MET’s unique matrix correction to adjust calibrations and improve accuracy further.
