Aeris

Our brand-new X-ray benchtop diffractometer. Aeris will impress you with data quality and speed of data acquisition so far only seen on full-power systems. The instrument is accessible for everyone with its built-in touchscreen and intuitive software.

Aeris is designed for low cost of ownership and is available in 4 editions tailored to the needs of specific markets: the Cement, Minerals, Metals, and Research editions.

Aeris, Customer experience, X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) »

[9 Nov 2017 | ]

I recently had the pleasure to visit a new Aeris customer in Orlando, FL – Louis C. Herring Laboratory. This service lab has been in business for over 60 years, specializing in the analysis of kidney stones, also known as urinary calculi. What I found amazing about this site is that their Aeris actually replaced a Philips Analytical PW1840 system, our first generation benchtop XRD produced in the early 1980s. Their PW1840 ran for three decades, amassing over 41,000 hours of operating time and requiring little to no service through …

Complete phase composition and simultaneous determination of bath parameters with a sample throughput time of less than a minute on a benchtop diffractometer!
The production of aluminium from purified alumina by electrolysis (Hall-Héroult process) is a very energy-consuming process. Frequent monitoring of the electrolytic bath parameters combined with short measurement times and high sample throughput is important to ensure minimum costs for smelter operations. Over the years a number of analytical techniques, including wet chemistry, X-ray diffraction (XRD) and X-ray fluorescence (XRF) have been used to monitor electrolytical bath conditions.
Wet chemistry …
