The Minerals edition of the Zetium spectrometer is pre-configured to meet the needs of the average mining customer. However, additional packages are available to upgrade the system to meet specific requirements in terms of sample throughput, sensitivity, flexibility and robustness.
The advanced sample handling system allows seamless integration of the Minerals edition into automated environments, independent of the supplier.

|Speed & throughput||Minimize total analysis time by incorporating 3 key upgrades:
• Continuous loading – a second turret position allowing a second sample to be loaded and evacuated while the first is measured
• Direct loading – a tool that allows loading of solid samples into pre-loaded sample cups in the turret positions, minimizing overhead times and improving repeatability
• 2.4 to 4 kW power upgrade – same analytical results in a shorter time
