Nuovo Spettrometro ARL Quant'X - Tecnologia EDXRF

The new ARL QUANT'X EDXRF utilizes an exclusive Peltier cooled Si(Li) detector and unique Digital Pulse Processing (DPP) technology for high-performance, multi-element analysis of environmental and industrial applications, such as air particulates, soil contamination, toxic elements in plastic, and forensic science.

The ARL QUANT’X provides the highest performance-price ratio of all other Energy Dispersive XRF (EDXRF) instruments on the market and ensures unmatched sensitivity and indispensable flexibility to satisfy, for example, RoHS and WEEE regulations

The ARL QUANT’X Energy-Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometer from Thermo Electron Corporation is a scientific instrument designed for the most challenging analytical requirements in laboratory and manufacturing environments. Its power and flexibility will maximize your productivity across a wide range of elemental analysis applications.

With the ARL QUANT’X, you no longer have to compromise on elemental range, analytical performance, sample type, or reliability. And Thermo Electron provides more than equipment: you get a complete laboratory package that includes proven hardware, all-inclusive software, on-site method development and technical support – all backed by a responsive world-wide service organization armed with decades of expertise with hundreds of successful applications in X-ray fluorescence.

Thanks to an on-board Pentium chip with exclusive Digital Pulse Processing (DPP) technology, the ARL QUANT’X can record X-rays many times faster than conventional analog circuitry still prevalent in instrumentation. The best peak separation for any analysis can be selected with one simple software setting.

Take full advantage of the close-coupled geometry and 50W air-cooled X-ray tube to complete even the most complicated measurements in a few minutes or less.

Careful attention to detail ensures that heat dissipation and air circulation are minimized, while replaceable filters on all vents protect the instrument in dusty environments. A self test and auto-tuning are some of the many diagnostic tools intended to catch problems before they affect the results.

Advanced technology doesn’t have to be bulky. The world’s only EDXRF system to break the 1 nanogram detection barrier can fit on any lab counter and is equally at home in steel plants, high-throughput environmental monitoring laboratories or demanding clean room environments where space and utilities are at a premium.

Automated 10- and 20-position sample trays are designed for industry standard powder and liquid cups, while the versatile single-sample stage is ideal for the occasional sample that defies description. Specialized stages are also available for the hard disk and semiconductor industries.

The Chamber’X option extends the nondestructive benefits of EDXRF to even the largest of samples. Blocks, boots or any sample up to 37 cm (14.6 in) high can be analyzed whole.

Although the PCD offers the optimal, non compromises balance between performance and  convenience, the larger Si(Li) crystal in the optional liquid-nitrogen cooled detector may provide higher sensitivity for certain applications.

Rotating the sample during analysis may help obtain a more representative result for materials are not perfectly homogeneous or uniform.

The ability to control the X-ray spot size from 15 mm down to 2 mm may facilitate analysis of small samples or trace amounts.

The inert flush option is essential for analysis of light elements in volatile samples and simplifies the handling of air-sensitive materials.

Select elements by clicking on a periodic table. Quickly build customized methods using templates for many common applications. And let automatic current adjustment generate the optimal excitation for any sample.

The comprehensive Fundamental Parameters algorithms for the ARL QUANT'X are the closest that practice ever came to theory. The industry's most powerful standardless and semi- and ardless analysis, together with the ability to account for variable stoichiometry, unmeasured components and sample thickness, are just some of the features that extend the analytical realm of EDXRF.

Accurate extraction of peak intensities from the spectra is a critical step for any quantitative analysis. Rely on automatic settings to get the job done, or easily optimize them for the most difficult applications.
