KARLSRUHE, Germany – May 22, 2017 – Today Bruker announces the launch of its new S8 TIGER™ Series 2, the next-generation Wavelength Dispersive X-Ray Fluorescence (WDXRF) spectrometer. The S8 TIGER Series 2 is the most versatile WDXRF tool available for advanced quantitative elemental analysis in industrial and academic materials research, as well as in industrial quality control (QC) of materials.
The new S8 TIGER Series 2 introduces novel HighSense™ technology which offers an exceptional 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 300µm spot size, XRF2 offers the highest spatial resolution available in WDXRF. This 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, optimization of mineral beneficiation processes in mining, analysis of material properties in metals, semiconductors, and nanotechnology.
The S8 TIGER Series 2 offers intuitive and robust operation with a new multilingual TouchControl™ interface. The S8 TIGER Series 2 is designed for high sample throughput and easy integration into automated analytical laboratories. Optimal instrument uptime and low cost of operation are ensured with the unique SampleCare™ feature that protects system components while running liquid petrochemical samples, or powders.
Dr. Kai Behrens, the Bruker AXS Head of XRF Product Management, commented: “The S8 TIGER Series 2 combines unequalled robustness and reliability with highest analytical performance, flexibility and application range in WDXRF. Its new HighSense technology allows tighter quality and process control, while the new XRF2 mapping tool benefits both R&D of new materials, as well as the optimization of industrial processes.”
