XRF Gun Cost

Recommended Posts

Anyone know approx how much a handheld XRF Gun costs? I know they're costly. A search on the web turned up several, but prices not listed anywhere I found ("call for a quote" was the best I got). Thanks.

I have not had one since late 90's. i was a "partner" with another inspector and it cost $16,000+-. Sold it and never made any money with it. too complicated.

I was once certified as a lead inspector/risk assessor (2001) when I did HUD funded inspections. The "training", not paid for by me, was an insult to an average intelligence. An attendee told me then that the xrf cost 15K. I doubt that demand has driven down the price since then.

BTW the one knowledge nugget the training yielded was that the best action anyone anywhere anytime can take to avoid lead poisoning is to wash hands.

...unless you live in Flint.

Lead protocols are all about hygiene. The EPA could have spent 10 years and $2 million on HEPA filters for every new vacuum and there would be less than 1/4 of the issues we have today with a 40 year billion dollar plan that defers liability to the last guy who touches it.
