Olympus Announces Patent Filing of New Method to Measure Lead (Pb) in a Multilayer Coating with Tube-Based Handheld XRF

Olympus Scientific Solutions Americas (OSSA)235, Waltham, MA, USA

Olympus NDT is pleased to announce its patent filing on a new method of measuring lead concentrations in a multilayer coating without the liabilities of radioactive isotopes. This new and proprietary SmartScreen™ method incorporated in the tube-based DELTA Handheld X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) Analyzer for Lead Paint provides fast and accurate analysis of Pb at low levels in multilayers of lead based paint (LBP). SmartScreen™ offers a significant improvement for residential Pb paint testing where action levels are typically in the 1.0mg/cm2 range and testing times are often less than 10 seconds.

The DELTA Handheld XRF Lead Analyzer with SmartScreen™ adjusts speed of measurement for optimum accuracy and maximum productivity. For most paint matrices, whether positive or negative for Pb, SmartScreen™ can deliver a rapid, accurate result. However, when SmartScreen™ identifies a challenging paint matrix, it extends the measurement time as required for greater accuracy and analytical confidence. Most tests take less than 3 seconds. Even the longest tests are typically less than 10 seconds.

The Olympus DELTA Handheld XRF analyzers offer cutting edge electronics and X-Ray technology, as well as innovative software features that make DELTA analyzers fast, userfriendly, and easy-to-operate. These analyzers are engineered for continual use, achieving thousands of tests per day in some applications, even in extreme environments. Every DELTA is engineered for rugged toughness and analytical precision for alloy, metal and elemental measurements.
