S1-TURBO-SD, Handheld XRF Spectrometer



Handheld XRF Spectrometers

So what makes the S1 TURBO series such an important innovation in the field of elemental analysis? The key is Bruker’s Silicon Drift Detector (SDD). The S1 TURBO was the first portable XRF analyzer to include the SDD technology which offers count rates and resolution far superior to traditional SiPIN detector technology. What does this mean for you? Even faster analysis times – 2-5 second alloy grade ID’s and 5 seconds for elemental chemical analysis (excluding light elements). That’s about five times faster than previous generations. Contact our applications team to learn more about the S1 TURBO.

The S1 TURBO is available in two configurations, the S1 TURBOSD and the S1 TURBOSDLE. Both use Bruker’s innovative SDD detector to give you incredibly fast analysis times. The S1 TURBOSD uses a durable aluminized Kapton® window that can be used for hot samples up to 500 C. The S1 TURBOSDLE uses a thin film Ultralene® window which allows detection of light elements such as Mg, Al and Si- without the need for vacuum or helium flush. In addition, the S1 TURBO can be configured with calibrations that are optimized for a variety of sample materials- including a wide range of alloys and various mining & environmental soil samples.
