Stress measurements on steel are often hampered by a high fluorescent background and peak broadening at high tilt angles, due to sample height misalignment. Use of a parallel beam geometry with Cr radiation can overcome both of these problems. Therefore, we have recently tested a parallel beam X-ray mirror for Cr radiation. Cr radiation reduces the fluorescent background radiation as is observed with copper radiation and provides a proper selection for peaks to be investigated with residual stress analysis. The parallel beam X-ray mirror makes measurements insensitive for sample height misalignment during omega-stress measurements. The parallel beam X-ray mirror is available for our Empyrean.

Fast and accurate at-line elemental analysis

Built on the experience and success of the proven Epsilon 3 range of XRF spectrometers, the Epsilon 4 is a multi-functional instrument for any industry segment needing elemental analysis from fluorine (F) to americium (Am) in areas from R&D through to process control. Combining the latest excitation and detection technologies with mature software and smart design, the analytical performance of Epsilon 4 approaches that of more powerful and floor-standing XRF spectrometers. Due to its low infrastructural requirements, Epsilon 4 can be placed next to the production line anywhere in your process. Its high performance enables most applications to be operated at ambient conditions, reducing costs for helium or vacuum maintenance.

The Anton Paar DCS 350 domed cooling stage is a stage accessory that has been designed for non-ambient XRD studies that require sample positioning and/or alignment in sample height, tilt or rotation. The DCS 350 is designed for flat solid samples with a maximum diameter of 25 mm. An X-ray transparent dome is available to facilitate measurements in controlled atmospheres, such as low vacuum or in inert gases, to prevent unwanted chemical reactions. Standardly the temperature range for the DCS 350 is from room temperature up to 350 °C (623 K). With the additional low-temperature equipment, the temperature range can be extended down to -100 °C (173 K). The DCS 350 is fully integrated in Data Collector. Measurements can be performed using Data Collector’s non-ambient batch programs. You can design your complete experiment by defining temperature profiles with desired heating and cooling rates. Moreover z-height compensation tables are available that correct automatically for the expansion of the Anton Paar sample holder (Ni plated Cu alloy) during non-ambient experiments. The DCS 350 stage is now available for mounting on top of the Empyrean three-axes cradle.
