This cost-effective system is a unique combination of Thermo Scientific XRF and automation technology for fully automated sample preparation and analysis of one material type.
Unattended instrument monitoring and integrated audit trail functions.
Sample handling arm equipped with a suction device (metals version) or a gripper (oxide version) loads samples for analysis.
Samples processed under strict identical and reproducible conditions.
Fixed circular magazine.
XRF functionality comes from the flexible and compact Thermo Scientific™ ARL™ OPTIM'X WDXRF Instrument.
Features of the OPTIM'X WDXRF Instrument
WDXRF platform with sequential and/or simultaneous capabilities.
Configurable to cover all elements from fluorine (F) to uranium (U) in sequential mode.
Fast analysis of solids, liquids and loose powders with superior spectral resolution.
No water cooling or gas supply (depending on configuration) required.
Closely coupled optics for increased intensity (50% higher than conventional geometry).
Features of the Fixed Circular Magazine
Eight positions provides storage of reference standards.
Allows occasional manual introduction of prepared samples.
One additional position dedicated to filing production samples following analysis.
The complete system can also be supplied within a Thermo Scientific™ ARL™ QuantoShelter container for in situ analysis closer to the process.
