Cooper Environmental’s Xact® 625i Ambient/Fence-Line Multi-Metals Monitor is designed for high time resolution multi-metals monitoring of ambient air, with detection limits that rival those of laboratory analysis. The Xact® 625i comes standard with a solid-state meteorological sensor and Cooper Environmental’s proprietary ADAPT analysis package, making the instrument one of the most powerful air pollution source detection offerings in the industry.
The system uses reel-to-reel filter tape sampling and nondestructive energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) analysis. The air is sampled through a low volume (16.7 l/min) particulate matter (PM) size-selective inlet and drawn through a filter tape. The resulting PM deposit is then advanced into the analysis area where the sample is analyzed by EDXRF for selected metals while the next sample is collected.
Xact® 625i monitoring systems are capable of identifying and measuring the 67 elements highlighted in the table above. Minimum detection limits for the elements highlighted in blue can be found on the performance page of
this data sheet. The Xact® 625i can measure elements highlighted in gray, but detection limit data has not been published for these elements. Please contact your Xact® representative for more information on your specific metals monitoring requirements.
As a “standard” set of elements of interest, the 625i will be equipped to report the following 44 elements – Al, Si, P, S, Cl, K, Ca, Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn, Ga, Ge, As, Se, Br, Rb, Sr, Y, Zr, Mo, Pd, Ag, Cd, In, Sn, Sb, Te, Cs, Ba, La, Ce, W, Pt, Au, Hg, Tl, Pb, and Bi. Of course, the elements can be tailored specifically to the user’s needs as well.
