The ARL OPTIM'X Cement Analyzer provides all the advantages of wavelength dispersive X-ray elemental analysis at a fraction of the cost of higher-powered systems. Its innovative optics, small footprint and ease of operation and maintenance lead to a significantly lower cost of ownership without sacrificing precision or sensitivity.

  • Ultra Closely Coupled Optics (UCCO) technology with power levels of 50W or 200W provides equivalent performance to much higher-powered systems.
  • SmartGonio compact goniometer covers all elements from fluorine (F) to uranium (U) in sequential mode.
  • Fast analysis of solids, liquids and loose powders with excellent spectral resolution.
  • Configurable with sequential and/or simultaneous elemental analysis capability for added performance or speed.
  • No water cooling or gas supply required (most configurations).

Ease of Ownership

  • Reduced dependence on auxiliary equipment.
  • No internal or external water cooling required.
  • Detector can be configured to work without external gas.
  • Robust, reliable and compact design.
  • Significantly lower cost per analysis vs. high-power systems.
  • Small footprint.

Goniometer and Multichromators

  • Can be configured with a series of Multichromators for simultaneous analysis and/or with a SmartGonio with 3 crystals for sequential analysis and flexibility.
  • Two fixed monochromator channels for specific elements can be fitted alongside the SmartGonio to reduce analysis time.
  • Up to eight fixed channels can be selected in a simultaneous configuration for increased speed.

Recommended for

  • Major and minor oxides in cement and raw materials such as limestone, sand, bauxite, ceramics, refractories, slags and sinters.
