X-MET8000 Software & Accessories

Manufacturer: Oxford Instruments

Carrying Case

A compact, rugged and waterproof case for easy storage and transportation of the X-MET8000 and its accessories.

Benchtop Stand

When repeatable positioning of the analyser or longer measurement times are required for best accuracy and precision (e.g. analysis of small parts, electronic components, powders, etc.) convert the X-MET to a benchtop analyser with a large chamber, in a matter of seconds with our benchtop stand.  The stand includes fail-safe interlocks and visible “X-rays on” warning lights for uncompromised radiation safety and local compliance.  With its foldable legs the X-MET8000 benchtop stand can be transported anywhere and is powered from the X-MET.

Portable Benchtop Unit for Handheld X-MET XRF Analyser

Light Stand and Safety Shield

A portable 2-part small stand for the safe analysis of small samples (e.g. fasteners, sample cups).

Handheld XRF portable stand with safety shield

Light Radiation Shield

An easy-fit radiation shield to minimise the scatter of X-rays from low density samples (e.g. aluminium alloys, plastics).

Handheld XRF radiation shield

Background Plate

Placed under thin, flat low-density samples, the background plate minimises scattered X-rays, and ensures accurate results by stopping X-rays going through the samples.

Handheld XRF background plate


Secure holster frees your hands when not measuring samples, and makes the X-MET easy to transport on-site and easy to access.

Handheld XRF Analyser Holster

Wrist Strap and Lanyard

For the safe and secure use of the analyser, also allowing hands-free on-site transportation.

Handheld XRF wrist strap & lanyard

Wireless Bluetooth® Printer

Portable battery operated Bluetooth® printer for on-site results’ print outs (on paper or sticky labels) to avoid mix-ups and re-testing.

HERO™ Window
Oxford Instruments has launched a unique solution for reliable X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis of hot samples, for use with their range of X-MET8000 series handheld XRF analysers. The HERO™ heat resistant protective window allows hot samples of up to 400ºC to be directly analysed for alloying elements including light elements such as silicon.

Minimise downtime with in-service testing

Positive Material Identification (PMI) inspection sometimes requires the testing of in-service components such as pipes, reaction vessels, etc. that are at high temperatures. When testing hot samples using the X-MET8000, the operator simply swaps the analyser’s normal Prolene® window for the HERO heat resistant window. Unlike other solutions available, there is no need for special spacers, shields or tilting techniques, which may have a detrimental effect on the accuracy of the results, especially for light elements. The use of the new window allows the operator to carry out in-service testing, therefore minimising downtime.

Christelle Petiot, Product Manager, Oxford Instruments, said “This unique solution truly simplifies the task for operators wanting to test in-service, high temperature components, whilst retaining the analyser’s excellent performance. Unlike other solutions currently on the market, there is no need for additional accessories or special measuring techniques that may cause results to vary from one user to another. With the use of the HERO window, operators also retain the capability of measuring light elements, which is critical in the testing of low alloy steels and other alloys.” 

Small-Spot Collimator Option
Small-spot collimator (3mm diameter) to isolate specific features from surrounding materials and measure them accurately (optional on X-MET8000 Optimum and Expert)
