Product Description

Hitachi X-MET8000-Expert Geo X-Ray Fluorescence Handheld XRF Analyzer

The X-MET8000 Expert Geo is an X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyser for on-site environmental soil and sediment screening. Carry out high volumes of analyses and complete testing programs quickly, reducing the need for laboratory analyses and their associated costs. Our large area silicon-drift detector (SDD) and revolutionary BOOSTTM technology provide up to 10 times the sensitivity of other handheld XRF models. This delivers the low limits of detection needed to measure critical elements (e.g. US EPA Method 6200 RCRA and priority elements) accurately.

The X-MET’s integrated GPS enables you to combine geolocation data with analyses results for flawless contaminants site mapping. It also works with Trimble® receivers for more accurate location data.


- Meet Current And Future Testing Requirements
Measure up to 40 elements with our standard soil calibration; create empirical calibrations tailored to your specific requirements without having to return the analyser to the factory. A blank and certified soil check samples are provided to ensure measurement traceability and accuracy.

- Low Cost Of Ownership
Withstands the harshest environments and weather conditions, X-MET is IP54 compliant (equivalent to NEMA 3) for protection against dust and water, and tested to the MIL-STD-810G military standard for ruggedness.

- Easy To Use
Intuitive user interface with large icons that can be used with gloves on. Its customisable 4.3' colour touchscreen provides excellent results visibility even in direct sunlight. Only minimal training is needed.

- Advanced Data Management
Store up to 100,000 results on the analyser, download them to a USB stick or PC in CSV format or tamper-proof PDF. Print results on-site on a portable Bluetooth printer and attach them to sample bags to avoid mix-ups. You can share the results on-the-go with our app and our cloud service enables you to export results securely in realtime. You can even manage results from a whole fleet of X-METs with a single account.

- Comfortable
Light weight (1.5 kg), great ergonomics and a 10-12 hour battery life ensure uninterrupted workflow and minimum fatigue.
