Fusion technology is a sample preparation technology which can be used for X-ray fluorescence
(XRF) measurements. With it, a sample is dissolved into glass using a temperature of up to 1.250 °C,
resulting in a perfectly homogeneous glass bead that offers the highest precision in sample
preparation for XRF analysis. Fusion technology is used to improve precision over pressed powder technology.
With the VITRIOX ® series , available in different capacities, samples are fully automated processed sequentially.
System features are:
Wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence sulfur (S) analyzer.
Measure ultra-low sulfur (ULS) in petroleum fuels by ASTM D2622-10
Designed for ultra-low level sulfur analysis of diesel, petrol (gasoline) and other fuels, the Rigaku Micro-Z ULS wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) instrument features a novel design that measures both the sulfur peak and the back-ground intensity. The ability to measure and correct for changes in background intensity delivers a better net peak intensity measurement, resulting in superior calibrations and enhanced real world precision. Rigaku Micro-Z ULS complies with ASTM 2622-10, ISO 20884 and JIS K2541-7 methods.
Rigaku's Primini Biofuel is suitable for phosphorus analysis in biodiesel for EN14214 and ASTM D6751.
It is optimized for sub-ppm detection limits of P, S and Cl and features easy operation without
chemical treatment of the samples. Easy sample preparation and operation reduces the need for a highly
skilled operator. A helium atmosphere is maintained in the spectroscopic chamber and sealing film
separates the sample chamber from the spectroscopic chamber, protecting the X-ray tube and the
spectrometer in the event of a spilled oil sample.
Analyze elemental biodiesel impurities with one instrument
Phosphorus in biodiesel, which comes from lipids in the fuel, is harmful to diesel engines,
so control of phosphorus content is crucial. Sulfur content in the raw material is very low,
which means that the content of sulfur in biodiesel is also very low. However, since the sulfur
contents in regular gasoline is regulated for environmental reasons, the content of sulfur
in biodiesel oil is regulated as well.
The newest version of our popular multi-channel simultaneous wavelength dispersive X-ray
fluorescence (WDXRF) spectrometer system is the Simultix 14. Based on over 30 years
of accumulated experience, the Simultix 14 stands out as the most advanced, fully automated
system available — designed to meet today's analytical needs for utmost sensitivity, throughput, and versatility.
High-power Benchtop Sequential WDXRF Spectrometer
Elemental analysis of solids, liquids, powders, alloys and thin films
The world's only high-power benchtop sequential wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) spectrometer for elemental analysis of oxygen (O) through uranium (U) of almost any material, the Rigaku Supermini200 uniquely delivers low cost-of-ownership (COO) with high resolution and lower limits-of-detection (LLD).
Low cost of ownership
Not only is the Rigaku Supermini200 an affordable choice for your XRF elemental analysis needs, the running costs are also low. P10 gas for the flow proportional detector is the only consumable. The Supermini200 does not require a source of cooling water, plumbing, or an external chiller, thereby decreasing system maintenance and lowering the overall lifetime cost of ownership of the system and yearly budgets for consumables and maintenance.
Wavelength dispersive X-Ray fluorescence spectrometer
High performance WDXRF for rapid quantitative elemental analysis
Rigaku ZSX Primus delivers rapid quantitative determination of major and minor atomic elements, from beryllium (Be) through uranium (U), in a wide variety of sample types — with minimal standards.
Rigaku’s new Smart Sample Loading System (SSLS) adds a new dimension of flexibility to the ZSX Primus WDXRF spectrometer.
For sample types that are amenable to such a process, a vacuum chuck can be used to load samples into pre-loaded sample
holders. This sample loading system has two important consequences: time is saved by the operator since they are no
longer required to manually load each sample in a sample cup and the number of samples that can be held on the sample
deck is increased significantly.
Permissible sample types
Rigaku’s SSLS can handle samples up to 50 grams in weight and the modular sample deck racks have been designed for different sample diameters. Samples with a diameter of 35 mm can be stored 32 samples to a rack with three such racks sitting on the deck. Samples with a diameter of 40 mm can be stored 24 samples to a rack with a possibility of three of these racks on the deck. In addition, the racks can be mixed so that different sample sizes are easily accommodated on the deck at the same time. Sample types that are amenable to this type of loading procedure include fused glass beads and pressed powders. Both plastic and metal pressed powder holders are permitted.
A precision vacuum chuck is used to safely and reproducibly pick up the samples and place them in the measurement sample holder. Each sample type has a specific sizing ring positioned in the measurement sample holders to assure that the sample is properly positioned for measurement, and the analytical reading surface is never compromised.
Keeping track of samples has never been easier. A two-dimensional barcode can be attached to the non-analysis surface of each sample. Before the sample is lowered into the pre-evacuation chamber through the input port, the barcode is scanned and the sample information is loaded into the control software.
Increases the number of samples on deck:
The maximum number of samples that can be loaded in the same installation space as compared to the conventional sample changer has been increased from 48 to 104 units (when 35mm sample trays are used)
Flexible combination of sample trays
It is possible to combine various sample trays (the sample trays for the standard sample holder, for 35mm sample size and ∅40mm sample size) in various combinations with a simple software operation for deck configuration.
Automated analysis interface provided
By communicating with the automated analytical system control computer, the sample set at the sample transfer position is measured automatically.
Significantly reduces labor requirements and improves accuracy
With integrated barcode reader (option), labor requirements are reduced and data transcription accuracy increased.
Tube-above wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometer.
High performance WDXRF for rapid quantitative elemental analysis.
As a tube-above sequential wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometer, the new Rigaku ZSX Primus IV delivers rapid quantitative determination of major and minor atomic elements, from beryllium (Be) through uranium (U), in a wide variety of sample types — with minimal standards.
