Zetium

X-ray fluorescence spectrometry (XRF) is capable of elemental analysis of a wide range of materials, including solids, liquids and loose powders. Designed to meet the most demanding process control and R&D applications, the Zetium spectrometer leads the market in high-quality design and innovative features for sub ppm to percentage analysis of Be to Am.

Industries: Cement, minerals, metals, petrochemicals and polymers & plastics.

Lower commodity prices, weaker demand, environmental regulations, lower ore grades, and higher running costs are some of the main challenges that the mining industry has to deal with every day. But now is a good time, while activities are off-peak, to adopt sustainable cost control measures beyond the traditional and generate data that will improve productivity and process stability. Reducing C1 cash costs and increasing revenues can be accomplished with the extensive use of automation and robots in the field and in the laboratory, to gain in productivity and remain …

This week I’m at Analytica in Munich surrounded by my colleagues from Malvern Panalytical. Even if it took me longer to reach the show because of the airline strikes, I’m happy to be talking to our customers and showing them our new products.
Our recently launched products the Morphologi 4 and the Epsilon 4 are taking pride of place at the front of the stand and there has been a lot of interest in them.
For the Morphologi 4 and 4-ID, I have enjoyed demonstrating it live to attendees at the exhibition. I have met current customers who use …

After the introduction of the Zetium at Pittcon in March 2015, I look back at the most exciting product launch I have ever been part of with great awe of what we have achieved. I still remember my euphoric mood on my flight back from New Orleans. Not because of amenities on board or the limited leg room, no, it was about what had happened in the past months in the running up to the launch of our latest product, the Zetium XRF spectrometer.
Now you must know. I have been …

For quality and process control many elemental analysis techniques are available. Let’s see how ICP, AAS, ICP-MS, ICP-OES and X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF) stack up are traditional techniques used in many industries. Each of these techniques has a number of advantages and disadvantages giving the analyst the flexibility to choose which technology suits best. When the required limits of quantification are above 1 ppm (µg/g), or when the non-destructive analysis is required, XRF is a very attractive technique that should be considered, especially when analyzing solids, powders, slurries, filters, and …

A while ago I attended the mining conference Exponor in Antofagasta, Chile and found it to be an immense, mostly open-air display and the technical program aimed at keeping the South American mines informed of the latest solutions for all aspects of their industry. In and amongst the huge mining machinery and vendors of everything – from dust masks to helicopters – was Malvern Panalytical. One trend did emerge from the people we did get to talk to at this event – a common theme of looking for ways to improve efficiency. This …
