As a premium low cost benchtop Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (EDXRF) elemental analyzer, the Rigaku NEX QC+ QuantEZ delivers wide elemental coverage with a easy-to-learn Windows®-based QuantEZ software. Non-destructively analyze from sodium (Na) through uranium (U) in almost any matrix, from solids and alloys to powders, liquids and slurries.
Elemental analysis in the field, plant or lab
Especially designed and engineered for heavy industrial use, whether on the plant floor or in remote field environments, the superior analytical power, flexibility and ease-of-use of the NEX QC+ QuantEZ series add to its broad appeal for an ever expanding range of applications, including exploration, research, bulk RoHS inspection, and education, as well as industrial and production monitoring applications. Whether the need is basic quality control (QC) or its more sophisticated variants — such as analytical quality control (AQC), quality assurance (QA) or statistical process control like Six Sigma — the NEX QC QuantEZ series is the reliable choice for routine elemental analysis.
50kV X-ray tube and SDD detector
The shuttered 50kV X-ray tube and Peltier cooled Silicon Drift Detector (SDD) deliver exceptional short-term repeatability and long-term reproducibility with excellent element peak resolution. This high voltage capability (50 kV), along with multiple automated X-ray tube filters, provides a wide range of XRF applications versatility and low limits-of-detection (LOD).
Options: autosampler, helium and FP
Options include fundamental parameters, automatic sample changer, sample spinner and helium purge for enhanced light element sensitivity.

AppNote 1595: the semi-quantitative measurement of metals in various alloys is demonstrated using the Fundamental Parameters approach without the need for a reference library.
Standard and specialty alloys vary in metal composition to give the alloy its specific physical, mechanical and chemical properties. Analyzing alloy composition by XRF (X-ray Fluorescence) is important to ensure the proper alloy grade meets the needs for its specific use. The Rigaku NEX QC+ QuantEZ system gives the operator a quick, simple and reliable means of checking alloy composition without damaging or changing the sample.
Use of EDXRF for elemental determination of drill cuttings.
When drilling for crude oil and natural gas, rock cuttings are brought to the surface by the drilling mud for examination and characterization of the rock strata. Mineralogy and elemental composition are some of the tests that go into the lithology of the rock layers, giving valuable information on the formation being drilled for well logging and positioning of the drill bit when geosteering. XRF gives elemental composition of the cuttings, an important part of the overall well logging system. To meet the industry needs, Applied Rigaku Technologies offers Energy Dispersive XRF (EDXRF) analyzer NEX QC+ QuantEZ for measuring elemental composition of various geological materials.
