Not all that glitters is gold – much less pure gold! If you want to know exactly how much gold it contains, you can rely on our X-ray fluorescence (XRF) measuring instruments: With the GOLDSCOPE SD® you can quickly check the authenticity of jewelry and analyze the composition of gold and precious metals – non-destructively.
The features of the different GOLDSCOPE SD models assist you optimally with your daily work at the jewelry store, the pawnshop or in the testing laboratory. The procedure is clean and requires no chemicals. And like all Fischer X-ray fluorescence XRF spectrometers, the GOLDSCOPE SD measures with the excellent precision you’ve come to expect.
The handling of the XRF devices is tailored to the needs of the precious metals and jewelry industry. The most important measuring tasks for analyzing gold and precious metals are already pre-programmed in the operating software, WinFTM. All you have to do is place the sample on the measurement window and press start. This makes the valuation of jewelry and coins foolproof.
Still unsure? See it in action for yourself! Let us convince you with a non-binding demonstration of the GOLDSCOPE SD.
The GOLDSCOPE SD 520 and GOLDSCOPE SD 550 are equipped with the newly in-house developed digital pulse processor DPP+. In combination with the now available, larger silicon drift detector (50 mm² effective area), even higher count rates can be processed with a very good energy resolution. What is the effect of the new technology on your measurements? The absolute standard deviation of the repeatability is reduced by up to 45 % at the same measurement time. Moreover, the same standard deviation is achievable with a measurement time that is three times shorter.
