A Handheld XRF “Soil Gun” for Efficient Contaminated Soil Profiling
       Handheld XRF guns have become the instrument of choice for soils analysis when characterizing, remediating and monitoring contaminated soil sites. With just 30-60 seconds per sample, fast, accurate data can be obtained in hours rather than weeks, ensuring that your project meets its deadline and does not go over budget.  XRF is nondestructive. Sampling density is the key factor in profiling contamination. Best practice includes sending 5% of these very same samples analyzed with the XRF in the field to the lab for confirmation.

The S1 TITAN is compliant with the following regulations and protocols:
·  For expediting site characterization, remediation and managing decision uncertainty, handheld XRF is a critical tool in the TRIAD Approach
·  EPA Method 6200. Analyze all 26 elements and more, from Magnesium (Mg) to Uranium (U)
·  Analyze all 8 Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) metals: As, Ba, Cd, Cr, Pb, Se, Ag and Hg
·  Of the 13 Priority Pollutant metals in soil, 12 can be easily detected with field portable XRF (FPXRF) guns, namely Antimony (Sb), Arsenic (As), Cadmium (Cd), Chromium (Cr), Copper (Cu), ·  Lead (Pb), Mercury (Hg), Nickel (Ni), Selenium (Se,) Silver (Ag), Thallium (Tl) and Zinc (Zn) (the exception being Beryllium (Be)).


Techniques to maximize efficiency
Depending on your data quality objectives, the following techniques can be employed with the S1 TITAN to maximize efficiency while cultivating accuracy demands:

·  In Situ Analysis (no sample preparation) provides fast, nondestructive analysis directly on the soil enabling speedy determination of the contamination plume while minimizing the number of samples being sent to the lab. This technique provides qualitative analysis in seconds while maximizing sample throughput. Send us your question.
·  Indirect Analysis: some preparation is necessary to provide semi-quantitative to quantitative results. Analyzing samples directly through Ziploc bags enables you to eliminate sticks or larger chunks creating particle sizes that are more homogeneous, which affords semi-quantitative to quantitative results, depending on the natural homogeneity of the matrix. Find out details.
·  Ex Situ Analysis (full preparation) - provides lab-quality, even ELPAT proficient results is possible, in seconds. After grinding, sieving and packing dried soil into a 32mm cup, the sample is in ideal form for the XRF to deliver results that can correlate to the lab with an r2 value of 0.98 and even 0.99 in some cases.
