EDX-7000/8000/8100 Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometer

Accommodates all types of samples from small to large, from powders to liquids. Options include a vacuum measurement unit and helium purge unit for highly sensitive measurement of light elements and a 12-sample turret for automated continuous measurements.

Sample Observation Camera and Collimators

1mm diameter and 5mm diameter Collimator Selected

Automatic collimator switching in four stages: 1, 3, 5, and 10 mm diameter

Select the irradiation chamber from four values to suit the sample size.
Select the most appropriate irradiation diameter for the sample shape: 1 mm diameter for trace foreign matter analysis or defect analysis; 3 mm or 5 mm diameter for small sample volumes.

Sample observation camera included standard

Use the sample observation camera to confirm the X-ray irradiation position on a specific position to measure small samples, samples comprising multiple areas, or when using a Micro X-Cell.

Automatic Replacement of Five Primary Filters

Primary filters enhance detection sensitivity by reducing the continuous X-rays and the characteristic X-rays from the X-ray tube. They are useful for the analysis of trace elements.
The EDX-7000/8000/8100 incorporates five primary filters as standard (six, including the open position), which can be automatically changed using the software.

Filter Effective Energy (keV) Target Elements (Examples)
#1  15 to 24  Zr, Mo, Ru, Rh, Cd
#2  2 to 5  Cl, Cr
#3  5 to 7  Cr
#4  5 to 13  Hg, Pb, Br
#5  21 to 24(5 to 13)*  Cd (Hg, Pb, Br)

   * This filter also cuts the background in the energy range shown in parentheses ( ).

Freely Combine Collimators and Primary Filters

The collimators and primary filters are driven independently and can be combined to address specific requirements. Select the optimal combination from 24 (6 filters x 4 collimators) available options.

Quantitative analysis using the FP method is possible with all combinations.
