The XACT Continuous Heavy Metals (in air) Analyser, available from Thomson Environmental Systems , has the ablility to measure continuously up to 20 heavy metals in near real time. The XACT Continuous Heavy Metals (in air) Analyser is manufactured by Cooper Environmental Systems in the US and offers the user flexible and reliable data.
The instrument is able to measure both vapour and particulate phase metals using reactive filter tape and X-ray fluorescence. This non-destructive analysis allows for sample archiving and can replace the laborious ambient high volume air samplers and stack sampling trains.
The different metals that can be measured using the Continuous Heavy Metals (in air) Analyser include:
