Analytical Chemistry study with Xenemetrix ED-XRF Modern research deals with the development of new forms of diagnostic technologies for different purposes, such as solutions for laboratory needs, devices and methods that deliver accurate and reliable results at a very high level of productivity.
Fingerprinting all kinds of materials analyzed in forensic analysis
Forensic scientists generally require fast and non-destructive analysis of a very wide range of materials. Often these materials are presented in very small quantity, as evidence collected from a crime scene. Using ED-XRF allows to measure a wide range of elements and concentrations: C(6)-Fm(100), without any need of sample preparations. Samples can be measured in many different formats such as powder, solid, liquid or in thin films.
Quality control of the various metal industry processes. Metal forms an essential material in modern manufacturing, metal products being used everywhere. Using ED-XRF allows to measure a wide range of elements and concentrations - C(6)-Fm(100) - without the need for sample preparations (heating or destroying the sample). Samples can be measured in the form of loose powders or pressed into pellets and ready for measurement within seconds.
Air pollution, soils, grounds and wastewater
Xenemetrix Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (ED-XRF) spectrometers bring expanded capabilities to environmental monitoring through the combination of proven detection methods with innovative technologies, including regulatory monitoring for compliance and research.
Xenemetrix advanced ED-XRF spectrometers provide on-site quantitative analysis of mining products, thereby reducing the time for receiving results from days to seconds, compared to time consuming laboratory analysis. Materials recovered by mining, minerals or other geological materials that originate from the earth consist of all kinds of base metals - precious metals, iron, uranium, coal, diamonds, limestone, oil shale, rock salt and potash - all of which can be efficiently analyzed by Xenemetrix outstanding...
During the manufacturing process, cosmetic products need to be chemically analyzed to ensure conforming to product specification and safety regulations, as well as achieving cost-effectiveness in the manufacturing process. Using ED-XRF allows measuring a wide range of elemental concentrations such as C(6)-Fm(100), without a need for sample preparations(heating or destroying the sample). Samples can be measured in the form of loose powders or powders pressed into pellets, and are made ready for measuring within...
Oil and fuel analysis - compliance with ASTM standard methods and other regulations. Xenemetrix state-of-the-art ED-XRF analyzers offer solutions for the Petroleum & Petrochemical analysis that comply with ASTM standards and regulations. Our superior solutions cover the full production process, starting from research & development up to process and quality control.
The IMO (International Maritime Organization) continuously sets new standards in order to minimize and control the harmful polluting exhausts from vessel engines. IMO is the World’s largest maritime organization with over 170 member states and acts as a regulatory agency for the international maritime industry.
The Food & Beverage industry is a wide-scale and versatile industry, which is enforced by strict standards and regulations that makes it an ideal potential for the ED-XRF analytical systems. Using ED-XRF allows measuring a wide range of elements C (6)-Fm (100), at different concentration in almost all matrices - solids, powders and liquids.
Wood treatment used to protect lumber from fungi, insects, UV damage, water damage and general wear. When treating wood the proper balance of treatment solution must be monitored to ensure the highest quality while minimizing waste and excess cost due to treatment usage or product rejection.
The pharmaceutical industry is one of the most regulated industries. Contaminants in drug products are examined throughout the manufacturing process, since their presence affects drug stability, behaviour and toxicity. Therefore, regulatory bodies such as the European Medicines Agency (EMEA) and the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) strictly enforce continuous and ongoing analysis of organic or inorganic impurities from raw materials, excipients and Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API) through...
Museum curators, art historians, and archeologists analysis to alert
Art, artifact and antique analysis can be done using non-destructive, fast and simple XRF methods to identify what items are made of.
Art historians, archeologists and conservators are constantly concerned with the questions of where, when and by whom an object was made. Investigations of physical properties and especially chemical composition of artifacts are helpful and increasingly applied to allocate an object to a particular historic or...
Compliance with the RoHS and WEEE directives
The Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (ED-XRF) spectrometers offer efficient solutions for the analytical requirements of the determination of regulated substances in electrical and electronic equipment according to the European Directive RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment) and WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment).
Plastics, polymers and rubber are combined with a variety of different additives in order to give them properties that are important for many different markets. These products are commonly analyzed as beads, which in their end form are pressed or molded into plaques.
Compliance with the ASTM method at low concentrations sulfur. Sulfur is a major element of importance because it forms sulfuric acid in the atmosphere when burned and has harmful impact on the human health and on the environment. In the mid-2000`s, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) began a program to greatly reduce the amount of Sulfur in petroleum products. The current allowable sulfur limit in vehicle fuel is 15 ppm (parts per million). To reduce the pollution coming from vessels the international...
Quality control of coating and thin film analysis
All industrial operations have processes in place to ensure efficiency and safety standards. Xenemetrix systems are perfectly suitable for complementing these processes.
