Vanta™ Handheld XRF for Soil Analysis and Environmental Remediation: Rugged. Revolutionary. Productive.
The Vanta analyzer is an important tool for screening soil and other materials for pollutant heavy metals. With integrated GPS, pair results and GPS coordinates for sample traceability to the field. Easily transfer GPS and sample data via Wi-Fi to a GIS to create pollutant metal maps. Get fast, decisive results for site characterizations, assessments, property evaluations, and contamination tracking. With Vanta analyzers, test for dangerously high levels of RCRA, Priority Pollutants, and hazardous metals in seconds. Vanta handhelds can be used for testing and compliance with:
- EPA 6200
- Filters per NIOSH or OSHA methods
- Screening surfaces
Vanta analyzers give you the same result every time from your first test to your hundredth test. The Vanta Series’ proprietary Axon™ technology uses ultra-low-noise electronicsenabling higher X-ray counts per second for fast, accurate, and repeatable results. Coupled with a new quad-core processor, Axon makes Vanta analyzers remarkably responsive, pushing the limits of performance so you get the best results in the least amount of time. Axon technology provides both test-to-test and instrument-to-instrument repeatability.
Vanta analyzers maximize user throughput and make data archiving easy to improve user productivity for fast ROI.
- Intuitive user interface (UI) to quickly navigate the device’s settings and software functions.
- Configure the UI based on your specific needs.
- Customize which software features and functions are displayed on the main screen.
- Easily export data via a USB flash drive, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth®; Vanta analyzers are designed to enable powerful cloud applications.
Rugged for Environmental Assessments in the field
Vanta™ analyzers are ideal for measuring priority pollutants (Ag, As, Cd, Cr, Cu, Hg, Ni, Pb, Se, Tl, and Zn) and RCRA metals (Ag, As, Ba, Cd, Cr, Hg, Pb, and Se). Because samples require little or no preparation, Vanta analyzers are ideal tools for screening large sites and for analyzing samples such as bagged soil, sediments, cores, fluids, dust wipes, surfaces and filters.
Vanta Handheld XRF: Optimized for Environmental Assessments
Vanta analyzers provide the fast results necessary for site characterizations, property evaluations, contamination tracking, hazardous waste screening, remediation monitoring, and regulatory compliance. Quickly and easily identify a range of contaminants including:
- Lead (Pb)
- Arsenic (As)
- Mercury (Hg)
- Chromium (Cr)
Efficient Soil Screening
Vanta analyzers facilitate efficient soil screening as part of EPA Method 6200 for measuring elemental concentration in soil and sediment for site characterization. Vanta handheld XRF analyzers can test a range of sample types including in situ soil, bagged soil, and fully prepped soil samples. Vanta analyzers are fast, powerful, and cost-effective tools for site characterization. Being able to identify material chemistry in the field means you improve site understanding and send fewer samples to an outside lab.
Instant Metal Mapping with Integrated GPS
Vanta analyzers feature integrated GPS so users can pair results with precise GPS coordinates to document and map the location of elements. Combine GPS data, XRF test results, and images from the optional 5-megapixel panoramic camera for inclusive archiving and streamlined reporting. Map, visualize, assess, and follow-up on targets in the field for faster decision-making.
