Delta Lead Paint XRF Analyzer Introduction
DELTA Lead Based Paint Handheld XRF Analyzers test for Lead (Pb) in seconds. These reliable, tube-based units are light in weight and ergonomically designed for all-day testing. They start fast and stay fast – no isotope fade. And, they have a low total cost of ownership. Before you begin structural repair – grinding, cutting or painting – screen for Pb; then, check your work area after clean-up. The Handheld XRF configured specifically for Industrial Lead-Based-Paint analysis is the DELTA Classic and is referred to as the DC4000LP. The DELTA does not have a HUD PCS; therefore, it is not suitable for HUD LBP applications.
Delta Lead Paint XRF Analyzer Details
Olympus’ Handheld XRF Lead Paint analyzers provide a better way to identify the presence of lead paint on multiple surfaces prior to repair, restoration or painting. SmartScreenTM provides a fast and accurate method of measuring Pb concentrations in a multilayer coating without the liabilities of radioactive isotopes. The software-based proximity sensor enables easy measurements on uneven surfaces. With no radioactive sources, the analyzer eliminates isotope loss of speed, high replacement costs, and post-9/11 regulatory restrictions.
DELTA HHXRF for Fast, Accurate, Non-Destructive Lead Based Paint (LBP) Testing
- Reduce time and cost of testing on multiple surfaces
- Accurate on-site testing with documented traceability
- Set test results by action level or time per application
- LBP testing prior to construction, demolition, repair, painting and after clean-ups
- Easily tests for Pb directly on floors, walls, doors, hinges, pipes, joints, window casings and even on dust wipes and filters
Our Handheld XRF analyzers have been chosen repeatedly by US Customs, FDA, EPA, DOE, international customs agencies, and certified independent testing companies to rapidly screen and analyze for regulated toxic metals including lead (Pb) due to its fast, non-destructive, and on-the-spot testing capabilities. The DELTA does not have a HUD PCS; therefore, it is not suitable for HUD LBP applications.
Olympus Knows Lead (Pb) Paint Analysis
Our high-precision analyzers dramatically reduce testing times allowing hundreds more tests per day with a significant confidence in lead analysis on varied painted surfaces. Within seconds, these analyzers can detect lead when and where you need it and report the results as surface area concentrations as well as positive or negative based on preset values. The Analyzers can be programmed with a Fixed Time or Set Action Level End Condition. NIST Standards are available for Portable XRF Lead Paint Surface Analysis. SmartScreenTM provides a fast and accurate method of measuring Pb concentrations in a multilayer coating without the liabilities of radioactive isotopes.

Everything You Need in Handheld XRF with State-of-the-Art Innovation
The New Generation DELTA Handheld XRF Analyzers are ergonomically advanced with a forward looking design incorporating the latest in electronics, components, and software technology.
The newly available DELTA X-act Count Technology can provide even better sensitivity and precision in faster time for more materials than before. Throughput is increased with the same or better precision in half the time for most elements.
The unique DELTA Docking Station frees you from having to power down the analyzer. The station charges the analyzer battery and a spare, and performs periodic calibration checks. DELTAs can be operated 24/7 in the field with hot swap battery replacement.
The DELTA series handheld XRF analyzers are configured with powerful miniature X-ray tubes, Si-PIN, or highly advanced Silicon Drift Detector (SDD) detection, specialized filters, and multi-beam optimization for the ultimate in XRF field analysis.
The DELTA Premium with advanced 40kV tube and large area SDD detector is best for ultra quick, analytically demanding applications, such as trace levels and light elements in low alloy steel, soil, mining, and metallurgical samples.
The DELTA Professional with a 40kV tube and SDD detector is the best value solution from Olympus for handheld XRF analyzers. It provides superior performance in speed, LODs, and elemental range.
The DELTA Classic Plus with a 40kV tube and Si-PIN detector is ideal for simple applications. It provides quick ID, screening, sorting, and elemental and metals analysis.
The DELTA brings the power and flexibility of handheld X-ray fluorescence spectrometry to the field. Ruggedized and ultra portable, this dramatically fast 24/7 technology provides accelerated testing times, allowing for hundreds more tests to be conducted per day with analytical confidence. The DELTA series analyzers are configured with powerful miniature X-ray tubes, Si-PIN detectors or highly advanced Silicon Drift Detectors (SDD), specialized filters, and multi beam optimization for the ultimate in XRF field analysis. The DELTA’s real overall value is to help make decisions in real time with minimal reliance on off-site laboratory testing.

The analysis of soil for contaminant metals is the most common environmental application of handheld X-ray fluorescence spectrometry. Simple screening for toxic metals is performed by placing the analyzer directly on the soil, in-situ. The DELTA provides ease in detecting metals for site characterization, contamination tracking, remediation monitoring, property evaluations, extreme-weather debris migration studies, construction and demolition waste sorting, industrial or mining community perimeter checks, agriculture soil inspections, and hazardous waste screening for disposal classification. Quantitative measurements of the metals are based on robust preprogrammed calibration methods that may be refined by the user.
Community & Residential Development
The DELTA is ideal for immediate identification of heavy metals in soil at low PPM levels. This is necessary to ensure safety prior to developing or renovating schools, community centers, residences and play & sports grounds. This is of particular importance when developing these properties on former landfills, industrial sites, orchards, animal farms, Brownfields or anywhere that toxic metals are likely to be found in large quantities. And, when older homes or buildings are being redeveloped, restored or painted, the DELTA is ideal for quickly identifying lead (Pb) in soils, on surfaces and in lead based paint (LBP) to ensure the safety of the project.
Dangerously High Levels of Toxic Metals in Developing Countries
Dangerously high levels of Pb, arsenic (As), mercury (Hg), chromium (Cr), cadmium (Cd) and other toxic metals can be found in the domicile and play areas of peoples in developing countries where the knowledge of their danger are not yet known or where regulations are simply not yet feasible. Handheld XRF analyzers are used to quickly ascertain the presence and quantity of these contaminants. This allows world health advocacy groups to determine a course of corrective action to help developing countries prosper with local resources and with safe working practices and living conditions.
