ARL EQUINOX 100 X-ray Diffractometer

ARL EQUINOX 1000 X-ray Diffractometer

Get a dedicated XRD instrument designed for QA/QC, academic, and routine X-ray diffraction applications with the compact, affordable Thermo Scientific ARL EQUINOX 100 X-ray Diffractometer.

Occupying a third of the space of a conventional diffractometer, this standalone, transportable benchtop instrument offers true flexibility. No external water cooling is required, and it plugs into a standard electrical power outlet.

This instrument simplifies operation without sacrificing speed or performance. Thanks to a specific real time detection mode, measurements are completed in a few seconds. 

  • The largest selection of sample holders on the market for benchtop XRD (transmission & reflection mode)
  • Very compact XRD benchtop for installation and use anywhere
  • High sample throughput (low analysis time)

 

Experience real-time measurement in a simple yet powerful benchtop XRD analyzer with the Thermo Scientific ARL EQUINOX 1000 X-ray Diffractometer.

Designed for QA applications and routine X-ray diffraction studies, this high-power XRD instrument offers maintenance free, simplified operation while providing high resolution performance.

The operating conditions are saved in the software; at the end of experiment an analysis report summarizes operating conditions and tasks completed. With a 30-position auto sampler, the EQUINOX 1000 X-ray Diffractometer can be run in a batch mode and unattended.

  • The largest selection of sample holders on the market for benchtop XRD
  • Only XRD benchtop with resolute data in Kalpha1
  • High sample throughput with its 30-position sample changer
