X-ray components

The field of X-ray components is continuously developing. New technologies in micro- and nanofabrication keep increasing the performance of our X-ray instruments, sometimes with orders of magnitude. Several of these innovative components can also be added to already installed instruments, to further increase the performance of your (existing) system. PANalytical collaborates with the world’s leading (technology development) institutions to bring cutting-edge technology to your avail. We carefully select new technologies and thoroughly test them before we incorporate them in our instruments. On these pages, we show you a few of the state-of-the-art components for our instruments. Are you looking for something that is not in our catalogue yet? Our ‘specials’ team has developed many customized solutions for a wide variety of applications.

Versatile X-ray scattering platform

The Empyrean Nano edition is a hybrid laboratory X-ray scattering instrument. It uniquely enables for a variety of techniques for the structural characterization of (nano)materials on multiple length scales. Main applications: • SAXS and WAXS: Small-and wide-angle X-ray scattering • Bio-SAXS:     SAXS on biological macromolecules • USAXS:      Ultra small-angle X-ray scattering • Total scattering:    Atomic pair distribution function (PDF)
           analysis Several other applications, such as powder diffraction, thin film analysis and CT can be added - also as later upgrades. The high performance and flexibility of the instrument are driven by a high-resolution goniometer platform, a modular concept and latest detector technology. > Download brochure

X-ray tubes

PANalytical is the only major analytical X-ray equipment supplier with its own X-ray tube factory. This facility was developed more than 40 years ago, with a wealth of experience to draw on, plus all relevant technologies are in-house: • glass and metal-ceramic • low, medium and high power (10 - 4000 Watt) • various high voltages (30 - 60 – 100 kV) • side window, end window, target transmission, microfocus • various focus types (broad, normal, fine and mini focus) • many anode types (a.o. Sc, Ti, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Cu, Mo, Rh, Ag, Gd, W, Au) By having X-ray tube development and manufacturing under our own control, continuous innovation and performance improvement of X-ray sources is guaranteed. PANalytical offers a wide range of X-ray tubes, for XRF and XRD as well as for other industrial applications like inspection, non-destructive testing (NDT) and gauging. Next to our standard models, X-ray tubes can be customized according to specific demands. X-ray tubes can be ordered as single items, but also in small or large quantities based on volume contracts.

CubiX³ Pharma offers speed, reliability and reproducible analysis. Results enable manufacturers to maintain consistency in the quality of their product while optimizing production speeds. Equipped with PANalytical’s X’Celerator, CubiX³ Pharma is the fastest and most precise diffractometer available for production control.

Accurate and X-ray safe quantification of ores and rocks

Looking for a more accurate and X-ray safe instrument for quantifying ores and rocks? If so, the Epsilon 1 is the ideal analytical solution for bringing more accurate results closer to the mines. With its small footprint and very simple installation requirements, the benchtop instrument can be located very close to where the analysis is needed, for example, in the quarry or mine-site office. With little or no sample preparation required, Epsilon 1 allows screening and accurate quantification of ores, rocks, stream-sediment samples and even blast-hole chips. The Epsilon 1 is an easy to operate instrument with guaranteed peace-of-mind X-ray safety. Without the need for additional chemicals or operating gasses, the system provides superior precision relative to basic wet-chemical techniques. The instrument is calibrated with Omnian, PANalytical’s market-leading standardless analysis package, used on our more advanced instruments. As an out-of-the-box solution, Omnian can be used to analyze a wide variety of sample compositions from sodium to americium across the periodic table.
