The industry-ready WDXRF analyzer, with Versatility for Research and Academia

The S6 JAGUAR WDXRF combines excellent analytical performance based on cutting edge technology with compact size and Plug-and-Analyze installation. It offers more analytical power with typically more than 50% reduced measurement times than any other compact WDXRF instrument, featuring its new compact WDXRF goniometer, closely coupled optics, and 400 W direct excitation power. Based on the brand new HighSense™ XE detector with its ultimate linear range of more than two Million cps, it delivers excellent accuracy and precision for quality control in industrial labs.

400 W HighSense Power

Higher sample throughput, enhanced analytical precision, and better trace element detection with 400 W HighSense™ Power: 50 % shorter measurement times and double sample throughput or 30 % better analytical precision is provided with the 400 W excitation power of S6 JAGUAR compared to 200 W.

Versatility for research and academia

The S6 JAGUAR with HighSense™ detector technology easily covers the entire concentration range with linear count rates of 2 Mcps in one calibration. The HighSense™ XE detector for heavy elements even comes with a two times better energy resolution than conventional counters, significantly reducing inter-element effects.

Versatile HighSense Goniometer

The new compact WDXRF goniometer with its HighSense™ technology enhances both, sensitivity and spectral resolution, providing the analytical flexibility and performance for academia and material research. With up to four sample masks for different sample sizes, up to four analyzer crystals, and two detectors, the S6 JAGUAR enables fast multi-element analysis for the entire concentration range from ppm to 100%.

The standardless quantitation software SMART-QUANT WD™ delivers accurate results, even for totally unknown samples, based on new powerful fundamental parameter algorithms

HighSense XE Detection

The S6 JAGUAR is twice as powerful as a 200 W system and 8 times more powerful than a 50 W system. The major advantage of sequential WDXRF is that every single element is analyzed with optimal instrument parameters. And the S6 JAGUAR is the master of analytical flexibility: The direct excitation power of 400 W leads to excellent element sensitivity without compromise. Full power is available at 30 kV for light elements and 50 kV for heavy elements!  

S6 JAGUAR Applications


Universities and research institutions perform fundamental research on new materials and as such analytical instrumentation must deliver reliable data for element concentrations on a huge variety of samples. The S6 JAGUAR is based on WDXRF with high spectra resolution. With up to 4 analyzer crystals it covers almost the entire element range and its 5 position filter wheel helps to achieve better detection limits for trace element. The S6 JAGUAR is the versatile tool for researchers worldwide.

Cement & Building Materials

Cement is the most important construction material for buildings, roads and bridges. Engineers rely on the high strength, durability and resistance versus environmental impacts. The fast and accurate determination of the elemental composition by XRF of all materials involved in cement production is vital for successful product quality control matching ASTM C 114 criteria. The S6 JAGUAR delivers its outstanding analytical performance regarding precision and accuracy for raw materials, clinker and cement.

Food & Feed

Mineral concentrations are vital for every nutrition product: The quality of milk powder depends on its content of Na, Mg, Ca, Fe and Zn and the absence of hazardous elements. The growth of poultry or beef depends on the right composition of mineral supplements in fodder. The S6 JAGUAR analyzes easily the mineral composition of liquid or solid samples and is therefore the perfect tool for quality control in food and feed production.

Glass & Ceramics

From table ware and construction materials, from industry refractory materials to high performance ceramics in electronics, non-metallic oxide materials have a wide usage. The performance of a furnace lining or a ceramic insulator strongly depends on the elemental composition. The S6 JAGUAR with GEO-QUANT Basic analyzes raw materials, intermediates and final products. It can handle different sample sizes with the changeable collimator mask and is therefore a excellent tool even for final products.

Materials Research

Product development strongly depends on best knowledge about the material properties and the elemental composition is the most important one. Functional characteristics, resistance, strength and durability are determined by the purity. With its HighSense™ beam path, 400 W excitation power and the versatile goniometer the S6 JAGUAR can handle all different kind of materials in combination with high detection power. SMART-QUANT WD™, the standardless software, enables the quick quantification of element concentrations w/o prior calibration work.

Metals & Slags

The analysis of slags in metal production is important to access the actual furnace conditions. High precision on light elements is vital for optimal steel production and the S6 JAGUAR is setup to fulfill this requirement by combining ease-of-use, robustness and performance. For incoming inspection and quality control of metals the S6 JAGUAR supports automotive companies as well as other metal processing plants with its high analytical accuracy.

Minerals & Mining

The value of minerals and ores is determined by its elemental composition. This knowledge also helps to optimized the mining process and the mineral beneficiation. The S6 JAGUAR is perfectly suited for grade control of commodities, such as iron, nickel or copper ores, as well as sands, feldspars or limestone. 400 W power, high spectral resolution and optimal detection leads to high analytical precision and accuracy.

Petrochemistry & Fuels

The sulfur concentration in ultra-low sulfur automotive fuels (ULSD) following EPA Tier 3 or EURO V is analyzed according to ASTM D 2622 with WDXRF. The S6 JAGUAR with EasyLoad™ is the perfect fit: High performance even at trace level below 10 ppm, robustness with SampleCare™ and liquid sample recognition comes in handy. The analysis of additives in lubricating oils (ASTM D 6443) or in polymers is an easy job for the S6 JAGUAR and the result quality is outstanding. The S6 JAGUAR is the ideal analytical tool covering all applications upstream and downstream, from crude oil to final petrochemical products.

Pharma & Chemistry

Raw chemicals, active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs)and final products particularly underlie strict regulations, as to ensure the quality of resulting medications and other products. Research and product quality are both important applications in the life sciences and pharmaceutical industries. The S6 JAGUAR supports R&D with accurate elemental analysis no matter if this is in liquid or solid form. The standardless software SMART-QUANT WD™ enables the quick monitoring of raw materials and intermediates, dedicated calibrations deliver precise results for quality control.
