X-ray System

  • X-ray tube mounted above sample, prevents damage by defective samples, e.g. fragile pellets
  • Thermostatically regulated spectrometer provides high stability of analysis and precise measurements

Fixed Monochromators

  • Compact slit-crystal geometry detects elements at very low concentrations
  • Ensures faster response through simultaneous analysis of specific elements

XRF Goniometers

  • Programmable for quantitative analysis of specific elements or qualitative analysis of elements present in samples
  • High-quality, fast, sequential X-ray spectrometry using Moiré fringe technology
  • Full capability for analysis of nonroutine elements
  • SmartGonio covers fluorine to americium (up to 3 crystals fitted)
  • Universal goniometer covers boron to americium, depending on crystals configuration (up to 9 crystals can be fitted)

Calibrations
  • ARL 9900 can be fully calibrated for several material types ensuring rapid commissioning and fast return on investment
  • XRF factory calibrations exist for cast irons, steels, brasses, bronzes, copper alloys, aluminum alloys, zinc alloys, tin alloys, magnesium alloys, nickel alloys, super-alloys, titanium alloys, cobalt alloys, ferro-alloys, cement, minerals, slags, limestone and dolomite, ceramics, glasses, soils, sediments, rocks and polymers.
  • XRD factory calibrations exist for free lime in clinker, clinker phases, amorphous phase in clinker, direct reduced iron (DRI), etc.
 

Automation
