X-ACT EDXRF Analysis System

Most convenient price/performance solution in the market for elemental analysis

  1. General Details

    X-Act’s Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (EDXRF) spectrometer offers the most convenient price/performance solution in the market for elemental analysis.

    The compact spectrometer fits conveniently on a traditional laboratory bench and includes a completely integrated computer system. The robust design and build make the instrument ideal for a mobile laboratory.

    X-Act uses a high resolution detector and a powerful X-Ray tube with variable spot sizes to accommodate samples of various sizes.

    The analyzer provides non-destructive qualitative and quantitative determination of C(6)-Fm(100). The end result is exceptional product, able to deliver powerful analytical results today and into the future. This approach is particularly valuable in applications where limited sample quantities are available or where sample integrity must be preserved for other purposes.

    The innovative unit outperforms traditional systems without the cost and difficulties associated with liquid nitrogen cooling.

    Full computing capabilities are integrated into the system’s design for comprehensive data analysis and transfer.

    Silicon Drift Detector(SDD):

    Silicon Drift Detector enables higher count rates, better resolution, down to 125eV and faster response to minimize operational downtime.

    PD (Pin Diode) Detector:

    Ultra-thin detector window provides superior performance for low Z elements. Basic and reliable detector, achieves ≥ 150eV resolution.

    Key Applications:

    Petrochemical, Polymers, Academic / Education, Construction, Metallurgical, Alloys, Environmental, Mining & Geological, Forensics, Authentication & Precious Metals, Pharmaceutical & Biomedical
