Small Component and Weld Analysis

DELTA Analyzers can be equipped with 3mm diameter spot collimation for hightly focused sample analysis. An integrated full VGA camera takes live video image of the sample tested and superimposes a spot location for precise test location. Capable of analyzing thin weld beads independent from substrate materials. Analyzes small fixture components, wires and solders.


1、Spot size can be changed in real-time by switching between the collimated 3 mm diameter spot and the standard 10 mm diameter analysis spot.
2、The sample image is saved to memory after analysis. The image can be archived along with the analysis results and exported for simple report generation.
3、The convenience of a benchtop spectrometer in a rugged handheld analyzer.



Weld Mask Adaptor

The ruggedized weld mask can be attached to the front plate

of the snout to collimate analysis to a 3 mm width slot, which

is perfect for rapid, on-site weld bead analysis. The DELTA

weld mask is engineering with layered metals to exclude

substrate materials from analysis.

Exclusive DELTA Alloy Analysis Features

The DELTA is a reliable and rugged analyzer that maximizes both speed and accuracy. Other XRF systems have trade-offs. They may be able to identify alloys quickly, however inexperienced operators may not be able to determine whether an ID is incorrect, or whether longer testing is required. So how does the conscientious inspector maximize testing speed without increasing the risk of mistaken IDs or erroneous readings? Innov-X's SmartSort solution automates all these decisions, enabling even inexperienced operators to maximize both speed and inspection accuracy. This powerful feature yields optimized throughput and accuracy, making the DELTA an extremely productive XRF for alloy inspection.

DELTA for Positive Material Identification

With Newly Available X-act Count Technology

Superior Light Element Analysis 
Traditionally a difficult area for handheld XRF, the analysis of light alloys and elements (Mg, Al, Si, P, S) can now be routine with the DELTA Alloy and Metal XRF Silicon Drift Detector (SDD) Analyzer with the newly available X-act Count Technology. Its integration with a 40kV Rhanode tube and automatic filtering provides fast, precise analysis of transition and heavy metals, and sensitive measurement of light element content. SmartSort maximizes testing throughput - sample by sample, testing is automatically extended or terminated - maximizing accuracy and throughput.

DELTA SDD Analyzer Benefits

1、Magnesium (Mg) detection down to 0.20%

2、Quick and accurate quantification of S content in stainless and low alloy steels
-- Reliable identification of 303 and 416 grades

3、Measures Si and Al in stainless, bronzes and other alloys

4、Measures P in carbon steel down to 0.014% with exclusive 3-beam Alloy Plus calibration

5、Extensive grade library combined with SmartSort provides nominal chemistry for light elements when the fastest testing speeds are required





SmartSort Mode

Enables specific grades to be set up to automatically extend testing time, thus preventing mix-ups

Maximizes effieciency for speed testing. Automatically extends tests for light elements (Mg, Al, Si, P, S) when absolutely necessary, thus eliminating unnecessarily long tests, and preventing mix-ups

Makes the DELTA an extremely fast analyzer for inspections


Grade Match Messaging

Enables qualitative information and messages to be added into the grade ID library

Fully customizable messages allow for refinery-specific coding messages

Can be used to store multiple messaging libraries for individual work sites


Welding Grade Library

Can be activated alongside the standard inspection library for comprehensive PMI work

Provides easy grade addition or editing on board the analyzer

Standard Grade Match Messaging library included

High-Temperature Ready

The DELTA is engineered to be utilized for in-service inspection of high temp systems with temperatures in excess of 426oC (800oF)

The DELTA's industry-exclusive heat sink dissipates heat away from the XRF electronics

The DELTA can be used for longer durations in hot environments

Facilitates enhanced reliability of key XRF electronic components

Provides faster cooling of electronics after exposure to high temperatures



Analysis results display

demonstrating nominal

value (3% Al) and

Tramp element (0.09% Fe)












Tramp Library

A long-time standard in OES systems, the DELTA is the first HHXRF to offer this feature

Allows operators to set a max tolerated concentration for individual elements in 7 unique grade families; these elements are considered "Tramp"

The DELTA comes preloaded with a tramp library based on industry standards

The analyzer can identify and report tramp material, enabling the user to simplify grade matching by not having to count small, expected amounts of tramp elements against the grade match

Detect and quantify tramp residuals critical to selective corrosion investigations and failure analysis
