Minerals & Mining - S2 PUMA Series 2 Applications

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.
