ED XRF Analyzer X-Art M

DESCRIPTION

X-Art M is a versatile analyzer for determination of chemical composition in various objects including artworks. In the open air elements from Mg (Z=12) to U (Z=92) are analyzed simultaneously. Detection limit for the elements of moderate atomic number in light matrix is about 1 ppm. Detector crystal thickness of 3 to 5 mm provides high efficiency and in principle all heavy elements can be analyzed through K-series fluorescent lines.

Application

X-Art M is a versatile analyzer for determination of chemical composition in various objects including artworks. In the open air elements from Mg (Z=12) to U (Z=92) are analyzed simultaneously. Detection limit for the elements of moderate atomic number in light matrix is about 1 ppm. Detector crystal thickness of 3 to 5 mm provides high efficiency and in principle all heavy elements can be analyzed through K-series fluorescent lines.

Features

  • On-line non-destructive qualitative and quantitative analysis of material composition directly at the object surface
  • Arbitrary position of the analytical part in the space
  • Small distance from the sample surface to the detector window which provides effective analysis of light elements
  • Simple and convenient operation and service

Optional:

  • Sample-to-detector air gap filled with Helium atmosphere to enhance the intensity of light element lines in the spectra detected
  • Precise positioning system to change the distance between the sample surface and analytical unit for separate layer by layer spectra detection from sandwich-type objects
