The Olympus X-5000™ is engineered to provide safe and superior in-the-field energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) analysis. Functioning as a portable laboratory, this high-powered instrument is equipped with a secure closed-beam sample chamber and flexible analytical software that features a wide range of factory default and user-defined calibrations. The X-5000 offers the performance and safety of traditional benchtop EDXRF, merged with the cost-effective benefits and ruggedness of proven, portable XRF technology.
The X-5000 offers a high level of performance and power not typically found in field-portable systems.
An on-board PC offers full operation of the X-5000 in any environment.
Weighing only 11.5 kg, the X-5000 can be taken virtually anywhere testing is needed, from the lab to the field and beyond. This self-contained, closed-beam unite provides the ultimate in user safety.
Take It Anywhere
Use it around the work sit, at the inspection station, on the production line, or on the lab bench. Optional three-hour Li-ion battery pack provides true field use capablity.
Start Testing Immediately
Open the cover and place the material on the window, and then close the cover and start testing. Features an interlocked, closed-beam operation.
Results are displayed on the industrial -grade touch screen within seconds. Data is stored automatically in a tamper-proof format. Print material test reports (MTR), or RoHS certification of compliance (CoC) directly from analyzer through a USB connection to a printer.
Sophisticated factory-default calibrations enable you to analyze a wide variety of samples using turnkey settings. For applications with no commercially available standards or with proprietary standards, the X-5000 allows you to adjust the calibrations based on your own unique standards for control over elemental correlation.

X-5000 Application Range
Elemental Analysis in Petrochemical Fluids and Hydrocarbons
The X-5000 analyzer provides accurate determination of trace to percent levels of elements in fuels, oils, and lubricants. This powerful, field-portable analytical instrument is used in a wide variety of industries to identify elements and determine the actual elemental concentrations present in a variety of matrices (solid, powdered, and liquid samples). Simply collect and analyze - no sample preparation is required.
Key applications include:
Mining and Geochemistry
The X-5000 is ideal for exploration and mining samples including soils, sediments, rock chips, bagged drill cuttings, cut core, and liquid analysis of highly acidic samples. The X-5000 delivers excellent precision and accuracy for critical measurements, as well as low LODs required for specialized applications such as:
Field analysis of light elements - such as, Mg, Al, Si, P, S and Cl - is achieved without vacuum or helium purge. With its portable design and minimal requirements for sample prep, the X-5000 meets the standards of the mining and geochemical industries.
The X-5000 is ideal for field-portable XRF analysis of soil and sediment analytes, in bagged or fully prepared samples, to help comply with EPA Method 6200. In addition to commonly regulated analytes, some desired light elements, such as Mg, S, and P, can also be detected.
The X-5000 delivers superior LOD, rapid analysis time, and analytical confidence during screening or qualitative, semi-quantitative, or quantitative analysis, enabling you to simultaneously analyze up to 25 elements within seconds. The eight RCRA and priority pollutant metals are easily and quickly measured on-site in soil, solids, wet sediment, sludge, and liquids using the X-5000. Its compact design and battery-power operation make the X-5000 the analytical choice for field use.
Ensure compliance with global environmental methods:
The X-5000 captures the power, speed, and precision of a dedicated industrial alloy analyzer in a compact and portable unit. The integrated workstation design and interlocked closed-beam system is ideal for incoming inspection, scrap processing, foundries, or on the production line.
Specific applications include:
The X-5000 performs quick, easy, nondestructive screening for Pb, Hg, Cd, Br, and other toxic metals used as additives in consumer products. This is particularly important for products that are intended for children. This type of analysis is also performed at border crossing points to ensure the compliance of imported products.
Applicable consumer products include:
The X-5000 delivers fast and simple RoHS compliance results for Cd, Pb, Hf, total Cr, and Br. The patent-pending RoHS Engine Method automatically optimizes the X-ray source and filtering for optimal detection limits of alloy and polymer samples. Production-friendly, nondestructive analysis is sued to detect ppm levels of restricted substances. The is ideal for meeting requirements such as the RoHS Packaging Directive, ELV Requirements, as well as various customer specifications, which are often more stringent than RoHS limits. The analyzer' large sample chamber is also ideal for a variety of sample types including:
