The measurement platform demonstrates SumXcore technology, which combines wavelength dispersive (WD) and energy dispersive (ED) cores. This unique combination of technologies not only matches the traditional needs of XRF users, but offers a range of new possibilities. Zetium can also include a small spot analysis tool for fast element distribution mapping, and the innovative THETA free lime XRD channel for dedicated cement applications.

Industry versions of the Zetium XRF spectrometer are provided with customized expertise templates, and software and hardware configurations for particular industries. Developed for rapid calibration and commissioning, these industry versions have high-quality, proprietary, traceable application setup modules, which include sample preparation instructions and setup standards.

Customized application templates are also included for industry applications and international norms compliance. Minerals, metals, cement, petrochemicals, polymers and plastics are among the industries catered with this approach.

Key Features

The key features of the Zetium are:
