Vanta Element™

Vanta Element™ Handheld XRF Analyzer Series
Affordable XRF Testing

The Vanta Element XRF analyzer series provides elemental analysis for fast alloy grade identification and sorting at an affordable price. The series is available in two cost-effective models:

  • Exceptional durability under extreme conditions.
  • Vanta Element analyzer for affordable alloy ID
  • Vanta Element-S analyzer for affordable alloy ID, including light element detection for magnesium (Mg), aluminum (Al), silicon (Si), sulfur (S), and phosphorus (P)


Both models feature fast grade ID and clear on-screen grade comparison to speed up metal testing for scrap sorting, metal manufacturing, and precious metals analysis. The smartphone-like user interface is easy to use and easy to learn, helping to streamline both user training and the sorting process.

Fast XRF Testing

Recycling: scrap sorting, light elements, steel

The Vanta Element series includes connectivity features to help streamline your scrap metal recycling and quality control processes. The Vanta Series’ proprietary Axon™ technology uses ultra-low-noise electronics enabling higher X-ray counts per second for fast, accurate, and repeatable results.
