Building materials

Improve your process efficiency through high-quality, low-cost elemental analysis. X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF) has an important and well-established analytical role within the cement industry. It is used extensively for production and quality control for the elemental analysis of raw materials, alternative fuels and finished products. Continuing Malvern Panalytical's successful and established line of benchtop spectrometers, Epsilon 4 provides state-of-the-art XRF analysis. The outstanding analytical performance of Epsilon 4 is comparable to floor-standing XRF instruments, with a much lower cost of ownership. Discover the possibilities of XRF analysis and reduce your feedback time from hours to minutes by placing the XRF spectrometer next to the production line.

Food & environment

Trust your product quality Growing populations increase the need for a better handling of our earth’s resources. The Epsilon 4, an energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) spectrometer, is a powerful analytical tool to obtain useful elemental information to maximize crop growth and ensure product and environmental safety. The latest advances in excitation and detection technologies in Epsilon 4 open possibilities for challenging applications that are traditionally performed by ICP and AAS. Switching from ICP to EDXRF significantly reduces the use of consumables, utilities and time .

Lubricating oils

Value beyond compliance Speeding up engine test while maintaining product quality are essential industry requirement for producers of lubricating oils. Compliance to international test methods like ISO and ASTM is an essential industry requirement for elemental analysis of lubricating oils. For the Epsilon 4 this mandated compliancy is merely the starting point, but where the instrument really shines is the additional value it brings for many other analytical tasks in the production of lubricating oils. For example: • reduce errors of production by positive material identification • faster and more accurate dosage of expensive additives • supporting optimal blending efficiency of base oils and additives. All analyses performed by Epsilon 4 comply with the latest test methods and norms, like ASTM D7751 and ASTM D6481.

Oils & fuels

Save up to €190,000 in oils and fuels production Epsilon 4 can be used to save up to a 190,000 Euros in the production of oils and fuels. Compliant, repeatable and accurate elemental analysis is a given but additional value is generated in several parts in your refining operation: • the elemental analysis of crude oil to optimize and adapt refinery processes • the determination of low levels of chlorine for optimal desalting and corrosion control • the determination of low levels of S, Ni, V, Ca and Fe to prolong your catalysts' life and improve their performance • and the analysis of the sulfur content during fuel production and blending Analyses performed by Epsilon 4 comply with international test methods and regulations, like TIER 3, ISO 13032, ISO 20847, ISO 8754, ASTM D4294, ASTM D4929, JIS K2541-4, IP 336 and IP 496.

Mining & minerals

Increase your process efficiency and recovery rate X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF) has an important and well-established analytical role within the mining and minerals industry. It is used extensively for exploration, grade control, process monitoring and assuring that the composition of waste is within the limits of environmental norms and regulations. Epsilon 4 benchtop spectrometers are used in mining operations, even at remote locations, for fast elemental analysis of ores, minerals and rocks. The combination of low infrastructural demands and the high analytical performance, enables quick determination of operation strategies in mining locations where utilities are limited. Discover the possibilities of XRF analysis and reduce your feedback time from hours to minutes by placing the benchtop XRF spectrometer next to your mine or processing plant.

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.
