Highly concentrated samples can cause detector saturation resulting in lower accuracy or longer measuring times. Epsilon 1 uses the latest in silicon drift technology to handle these highly concentrated samples without any loss of accuracy or increased measuring times.
Low-energy X-ray photons characteristic of elements like sodium, magnesium, aluminum, silicon, phosphorus and sulfur are sensitive to air-pressure and temperature variations. Built-in temperature and air-pressure sensors compensate for these atmospheric variations, ensuring unaffected results whatever the weather.
Self contained system
A built-in computer running Microsoft Windows 7 with powerful CPU and 120 GB hard drive ensures flexibility to store and handle thousands of results. The high-resolution, 10.4” LCD touch screen is ideal for easy walk-up and operation.
The thin window Ag anode X-ray tube, designed and manufactured by PANalytical, ensures high quality and sensitivity. The selection of Ag anode material is ideal for the accurate quantification of P and S that are very common in ores, without interference of possible line overlaps in the XRF spectrum, leading to more reliable results. The 50 kV X-ray tube and generator is ideal for exciting heavier elements, resulting in faster analysis times.
In order to shield the delicate heart of the system from spillage, a protection foil is in place. In case of spillage, the foil can be replaced easily by the operator.
