The Vanta XRF PMI Analyzers are durable and reliable for any job in any environment. They provide highly specific material chemistry to quickly and accurately identify pure metals and alloy grades. With Vanta analyzers, inspectors can quickly determine correct alloy installation in critical locations. Vanta analyzers for PMI include innovative software features that enable inspectors to make accurate inspections with minimal training.

Able to withstand a temperature range of -10 °C to 50 °C (14 °F to 122 °F), Vanta analyzers ensure you get 100% testing time without wasting time waiting for it to cool, even in hot environments.**

Vanta analyzers accurately and repeatably detect and quantify:
• Residual Elements (RE) in low alloy and carbon steels
• Trace silicon (Si) in carbon steel per API RP 939-C
• Sulfur (S) and phosphorus (P) for in-service stainless steels

When inspection professionals need a reliable analytical tool to provide fast and accurate PMI data, they turn to Vanta analyzers. From piping, valves, welds, and components, to pressure vessels, Vanta analyzers provide anywhere, anytime testing with accurate and repeatable results.

The Vanta Series

M Series

Our most powerful Vanta analyzers feature exceptional performance to handle the most demanding applications. Each M Series analyzer comes equipped a large-area silicon drift detector, your choice of either rhodium (Rh) or a tungsten (W) anode, and a 50 kV X-ray tube.

C Series

The C Series combine value with superior speed, limits of detection (LODs), and elemental range. Each C Series analyzer is equipped with a silicon drift detector and your choice of an Rh or W anode 40 kV X-ray tube, or a silver (Ag) anode at 50 kV X-ray tube.

L Series

Get the ruggedness, ease of use, and data management features of Vanta analyzers in a cost-effective PIN instrument. The L Series is designed for maximum uptime and a lower cost of ownership for reliability in the field.
