Benchtop ED-XRF Analyser

Jun 13 2011

The Phoenix II is a polarised Energy Dispersive-X-Ray Fluorescent (ED-XRF) benchtop analyser that offers extreme simplicity of operation in a low-cost compact design. It is ideal for elemental analysis of liquids and for measuring Al through U qualitatively and quantitatively. This ED-XRF spectrometer has been designed for use in the rugged environment of production process and quality control, but is also well suited for the laboratory. An onboard PC makes use of Windows™ operating system along with a simple, intuitive touch-screen display, making analysis easy for non-technical operators, but advanced enough for even the more experienced user as well.

The Phoenix II combines polarised source X-rays, a movable secondary target and a rugged gas-filled proportional counter detection system, giving the Phoenix II improved performance for the measurement of low atomic number elements such as Al and Si as well as S and Cl. The detector design yields a high X-ray count rate throughput and makes use of X-ray filters to separate the spectral peaks of elements with adjacent atomic numbers. With its onboard computer, no external computer is needed. The Phoenix II does not require an external mouse or keyboard, yet offers USB, VGA and Ethernet connections for networking and connecting to external devices. This compact, simple to operate XRF system offers a unique combination of high powered polarised X-rays and a high sample throughput with rugged detector at a very affordable price and low cost of ownership.
