RoHS Analysis with Skyray XRF Spectrometers

The RoHS directive took effect in 2006 and is strickly enforced in USA and other countries. RoHS directive restricts the use of six hazardous materials in the manufacture of various types of electronic and electrical equipment. These six Hazardous materials are: Lead (Pb), Mercury (Hg), Cadmium (Cd), Hexavalent chromium (Cr6+), Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), Polybrominated diphenylether (PBDE). RoHS is often linked with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) 2002/96/EC which sets collection, recycling and recovery targets for electrical goods and is part of a legislative initiative to solve the problem of huge amounts of toxic electronic waste.

Acceptable concentration range as per RoHS guidelines:

Skyray X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometers are widely used in RoHS safety testing, toys, electrical products and quality control of hazardous substance testing . X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometers became a necessary tool for quantitative & qualitative testing per RoHS Directive and assuring the safety of products and consumers. Equipped with SDD Detector Skyray XRF RoHS Analyzers precisely trace hazardous elements and thanks to built-in HD Camera the operator can ensure accurate positioning and test multiple sample spots.

Both Desktop XRF and Portable XRF Analyzers can be used per RoHS Derivative . Desktop XRFs are more common with most manufacturers , however manufacturers limited by the size of the sample prefer convenient Handheld XRF design which allows to test virtually any sample- big or small.
