For process control, exploration, exploitation and quality control in industries such as mineral ores, geology, ceramics, bricks, cement and glass, accurate and frequent elemental analysis is essential. This helps optimize processes and assure product quality and consistency. X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectroscopy has become an established analytical method for quantifying the elemental composition of oxide materials. XRF has important advantages, such as straightforward sample preparation, accurate and reproducible results and highly automated analysis. These reduce measurement times to a matter of minutes and allow routine analysis to be carried out by factory operators. For accurate analysis, certified standards are essential. The WROXI standards set, which is produced from high-purity chemicals, provides very accurate concentrations. These are traceable, bringing the method closer to being a primary analytical solution. The WROXI standards set is suited for a wide variety of materials, including: silicates, carbonates, phosphates, rocks soils, iron ores, manganese ores, cements.
The Side Window X-ray Tube is designed and optimized for PANalytical's older generation of sequential XRF spectrometers.
In addition to the benefits mentioned on the overview page, the Side Window X-ray Tube also has a high overall intensity due to availability of various anode types.
HighScore Plus supports the simultaneous use of multiple reference databases. You can search through inorganic and organic databases in one go. All types of reference databases, from actual to legacy, from premium-quality ICDD products over mid-priced solutions to free downloadable databases are supported. HighScore Plus is designed for the Windows 10, Windows 8 and Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) operating systems.
HighScore Plus unites phase identification, crystallographic analysis, cluster analysis, profile fits and Rietveld/structure fits in one software package.
HighScore with the Plus option contains four classical indexing routines (Ito, Dicvol, Treor or McMaille). The unit cell refinement includes zero offset or sample displacement. The space group test is performed on either the full profile (Le Bail fit) or on indexed peaks. A Pawley fit to refine lattice parameters is another possibility. Lattice and structure transformations as well as cell reductions are supported. An automatic standardization of non-standard space group settings is possible while loading such structure data. The symmetry explorer tool contains the crystal symmetry, point- and Laue group, reflection conditions and special positions of all 230 standard space groups. Additional data covers the about 150 non-standard space groups used in the ICSD structure database.
The WROXI standards set is comprised of 20 synthetic multiple oxides standards supplied as powders to be prepared as fused beads. Standards are supplied as 5g powders in air tight plastic bottles, packed under nitrogen. The full set is housed in an aluminum carrying case containing the standards, user information and concentrations on CD ROM.
WROXI is a set of synthetic standards which enable calibrations for twenty-one major elements in the analysis of oxide materials.
The WROXI module and standards are ideal for calibrating the Zetium spectrometer for a wide variety of geological materials, ores and minerals.
WROXI can be used either as a primary fused bead calibration or to verify in-house standards for pressed powder applications (using fusion). Since the use of CRM’s are limited to material available and are expensive, synthetic standards such as WROXI offer concentrations and analytical ranges that are tailored while remaining cost effective. The WROXI calibration has been validated with over 115 CRM’s and shows excellent agreement.
The CubiX³ Pharma is a dedicated version, tailored to the needs of those working in pharmaceuticals.
