Why you need a window shield for your handheld XRF in a scrapyard
Almost anyone who’s been operating handheld X-ray fluorescence (XRF) instruments in an industrial environment for any period knows that x-ray detectors can be vulnerable. This is especially true when you’re testing sharp, irregularly-shaped objects like scrap shavings and wires in a scrap yard.

Like most simple yet effective solutions, the window shield we provide benefits from superior design to offer you a convenient way to future-proof your business:
Protection for all parts behind the nose of the instrument, not just the detector

Low replacement cost
Integrated Prolene window, which can be discarded and replaced when damaged or dirty.
We’ve got you covered – Maximum Uptime & Optimum Protection
If you want superior chemistry, non-destructive technology and robust design, then a handheld XRF is your choice of instrument. But accidents can happen, so to achieve optimum protection for maximum uptime, a window shield is essential. Some Hitachi models like the X-MET8000 Smart come with a shield as standard so you won’t even need to worry. Whichever model you are considering, the shield is a cost-effective and logical solution to protect your XRF detector and should be part of the package you buy.
