Bruker has launched its new S8 TIGER Series 2 wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) spectrometer. The new S8 TIGER Series 2 introduces HighSense technology which improves linear dynamic range, thus enabling higher precision levels for process and quality control in cement, minerals, mining, metals, glass and ceramics applications. In addition, measurement times are significantly reduced, sample throughput is increased and time-to-result is improved, typically by 25%. The S8 TIGER Series 2 also features XRF2 small spot mapping for detailed maps of elemental distributions in materials. With a 300-µm spot size, XRF2 makes the S8 TIGER Series 2 an excellent system for both industrial QC labs as well as for industrial and academic research and methods development laboratories.
In addition, the S8 TIGER Series 2 new HighSense X-ray optics improves both sensitivity and spectral resolution. This benefits a wide range of applications including recognition of foreign particles, optimisation of mineral beneficiation processes in mining, analysis of material properties in metals, semiconductors and nanotechnology. A new multilingual TouchControl interface offers intuitive and robust operation.
