APF Quality Lab is Proud to Announce It’s Latest Aquisition

The All-Pro Fasteners, Inc. Quality Lab is proud to announce its latest aquisition.  The S1 TURBOSD Handheld XRF Spectrometer by Bruker AXS.  The Handheld XRF analyzers give APF the freedom to work in the lab or in the field.

S1 TURBOSD Handheld XRF Spectrometer

So what makes the S1 TURBOSD such an important innovation in the quality lab? The key is the XFlash® Silicon Drift Detector, which offers count rates and resolution far superior to traditional SiPIN detector technology. This results in even faster analysis – 2-3 second grade ID’s and 5 seconds for elemental chemical analysis (excluding light elements). The improved resolution and count rate provides lower detection limits  for all elements analyzed. Combine that with an extensive Alloy grade library and APF has one of the most powerful handheld analyzers currently available on the market.

The benefits at a glance

  • Supports many calibrations and applications, including PMI, Scrap metal sorting and Mining & Exploration
  • The first ever SDD-based handheld analyzer
  • Superior count rates and resolution (compared to previous generation SiPin instruments)
  • Five times faster than previous generations
  • Lower detection limits
  • Grade library includes low alloy steel, tool steel, stainless steel, nickel alloys, cobalt alloys, copper alloys, aluminum alloys, titanium alloys, zirconium alloys and tungsten alloys
  • Easy analysis of light elements, such as magnesium, aluminum and silicon, without the need for vacuum or helium atmosphere (S1 TURBOSD LE only)
