In the minerals and mining industry, knowledge about the elemental composition plays an important role to reduce operation costs, improve the recovery rate, optimize the final product and comply with environmental & safety regulations. X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectroscopy is a well-established technique in minerals & mining, because it allows for fast and reliable determination of elemental concentrations (from ppm to 100%) in almost any material of interest and without or after minimal sample preparation. Modern, robust and compact energy-dispersive XRF (EDXRF) spectrometers are particularly suitable for incoming raw material check, on-site process monitoring, and verification of product quality.
No matter if a fast analysis of those blast holes or a detailed geochemical screening of soil samples, the S2 PUMA Series 2 can do it all. The analysis of larger sample batches is easy with the XY Autochanger and its 22-positions, which allows to add, replace, remove, and prioritize samples at any time.
Thanks to the touchscreen with its intuitive TouchControl™ software, minimal training is required to operate the instrument.
The pre-calibrated solution GEO-QUANT Basic is an out-of-the box package to have the instrument up and running quickly with a calibration based on certified reference materials (CRMs) for precise and accurate elemental analysis.
