(PRWEB) March 03, 2014
Applied Rigaku Technologies, Inc., a division of Rigaku Corporation, is pleased to announce is attendance at the 65th annual Pittsburgh Conference on Analytical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy (Pittcon 2014) held March 2 - 6, 2014 at McCormick Place, Chicago, IL, USA.
ART will present its array of Energy Dispersive X-Ray Fluorescence (EDXRF) elemental analysis instrumentation at Booth #2355. ART designs and manufactures benchtop EDXRF analyzers for non-destructive analytical chemistry
applications, including atomic spectroscopy and both quantitative and qualitative elemental analysis.
Among the instruments featured will be the new low-cost benchtop energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) spectrometer, the Rigaku NEX QC+, a compact elemental analyzer that delivers rapid quantitative determination of sodium (11Na) to uranium (92U) in solids, liquids, powders and alloys. Specifically designed for routine quality control applications, the new NEX QC+ features an intuitive “icon-driven” touch screen interface and built-in printer for easy operation and convenience. The 50kV X-ray tube and Peltier cooled silicon drift detector (SDD) offer exceptional repeatability and long-term reproducibility with excellent element peak resolution.
On display as well will be the Rigaku NEX CG spectrometer, a powerful advanced Cartesian geometry EDXRF analyzer designed to deliver rapid qualitative and quantitative determination of major and minor atomic elements across a wide variety of sample types. Unlike conventional EDXRF analyzers, the NEX CG was engineered with a unique close-coupled Cartesian Geometry (CG) optical kernel that dramatically increases signal-to-noise. By using secondary target excitation, instead of conventional direct excitation, sensitivity is further improved.
The ART division is also presenting the Rigaku NEX OL EDXRF process analyzer. Featuring advanced third generation EDXRF technology, the Rigaku NEX OL is a new and advanced instrument for on-line, multi-element analysis of aluminum (13Al) to uranium (92U) in process liquids or for coating thickness and elemental composition in web and coil applications. The Rigaku NEX OL is designed to span from heavy industrial through to food grade process gauging solutions and is configurable for use in both classified and non-classified areas.
