Hitachi High Tech’s X-MET8000 handheld XRF analyser offers many advantages for the identification and analysis of treated wood:
The X-MET8000 is factory-calibrated for wood analysis. Its Wood Fundamental Parameters (FP) calibration is a semi-quantitative method that has been optimised for the analysis of treated wood. The calibration can be used to analyse wood treated with chemicals other than CCA (e.g. copper-based or chlorine-based).
The Wood FP calibration includes the following elements: Ag, As, Au, Ba, Bi, Br, Ca, Cl, Cr, Cd, Cu, Fe, Hg, Mn, Ni, Pb, Se, Sn, Sb, Sr, Ta, Ti, Zn, Zr.
Treated wood can also be analysed as sawdust. In this case, pour the sawdust in a sample cup fitted with polyester film, and measure the cup in the light stand (see picture). The light stand fits in the case, for complete portability.
