Appendix XII: X-ray

Volume 29, Issue 5

Manufacturer: PANalytical, Inc.
Product name: Epsilon 1
X-ray spectrometer
New this year: Epsilon 1 is a brand new, fully integrated energy-dispersive XRF analyzer
Used for: Lab analysis
Special features: Consists of a spectrometer, built-in computer and touch screen, designed for dedicated out-of-the-box pre-calibrated application solutions with guaranteed performance. Includes built in drift correction monitor.
Software: 21CFR11 compliant, cGMP compliant
Suggested applications: Sulfur in fuels in (ASTM D4294 and ISO 20847), additives in lubricating oils (ASTM D6481), milk powder, research and education, mining
Primary benefits: Out-of-the-box performance guaranteed, low cost of ownership
Unique features: Latest SDD detector technology, drift correction routine with built in monitor, 50 kV thin window Ag anode X-ray tube, built-in temperature and air pressure sensors, pre-calibrated for applications described.

Manufacturer: PANalytical, Inc.
Product name: Epsilon 3 XLE
Benchtop X-ray spectrometer
New this year: New benchtop energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) spectrometer
Special features: Elemental analysis from carbon (C) to americium (Am) without an evacuated beampath, SDDUltra silicon drift enables ultra light element analysis of carbon, nitrogen and oxygen.
Software: 21CFR11 compliant, cGMP compliant
Suggested applications: Pharma (USP232/233), petro/polymer (ASTM 4294, ASTM 5839, ASTM 2617-08) cement (ISO 29581, ASTM c114), food analysis, metals, coatings, multilayers
Primary benefits: Quantify elements as low as C, better performance for light elements in general Na levels in food
Unique features: The 15-W PANalytical x-ray tube with the high current (3 mA) detector, compact design of the optical path, delivers better performance than even benchtop WDXRF systems. The SDDUltra silicon drift detector enables ultra light element analysis of carbon, nitrogen and oxygen.

Rigaku Americas
Product name: Micro-Z
ULS WDXRF ultra-low sulfur analyzer
New this year: WDXRF that measures both the sulfur peak and the back-ground intensity, giving the ability to measure and correct for changes in background intensity, resulting in enhanced real world precision.
Used for: Lab analysis
Dimensions: Analyzer: 450 x 410 x 440 mm, 36 kg
Measurement mode: WDXRF
Specialty accessories: Pump: (323 x 142 x 189 mm, 10 kg), power supply
Special features: Limit of detection (LOD) of 0.3 ppm sulfur. Fixed optics in a vacuum environment, and doubly curved RX-9 analyzing crystal, LCD display with membrane keypad and navigation. Can be powered by standard wall AC outlet.
Suggested applications: Ultra-low level sulfur analysis of diesel, petrol (gasoline) and other fuels.
Unique features: No He(g) purge required. Complies with ASTM D2622-10, ISO 20884, JIS K2541-7

Manufacturer: Shimadzu
Product name: EDX-7000/8000
Energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometers
New this year: New high-performance, state-of-the-art semiconductor detector
Used for: Lab analysis
Suggested applications: Electronics, ceramics, oil and petrochemicals, chemicals, agriculture and foods, metals, pharmaceuticals, and mining
Primary benefits: High fluorescent X-ray count per unit time; electronically cooled detector does not require liquid nitrogen, five primary filters, large sample chamber.
Unique features: New state-of-the-art semiconductor detector (SDD) enables high resolution analysis, no requirement for liquid nitrogen reduces operating costs and maintenance requirements; accommodates samples up to 300 x 275 x approx. 100 mm (W x D x H).
