Bruker S1 TITAN: Cutting-Edge XRF Machine Features

The Bruker S1 TITAN is a state-of-the-art handheld XRF machine. This machine offers some unique features that optimize both analytical performance and user experience:

  • Integrated color touchscreen display and interface for easy use, instant on-screen results, and one fully integrated, portable machine
  • 50kV X-ray tube for optimal excitation in a handheld machine
  • SMART GradeTM timing, so you never have to spend longer than necessary on any given sample analysis
  • SharpBeamTM optimized x-ray geometry for improved limits of detection, shorter analysis times, and improved precision regardless of spot size
  • FAST SDDTM detector technology offers the best, fastest, most sensitive silicon drift detector technology on the market for optimal speed, precision, accuracy and repeatability
  • Optional integrated camera allows users to perfectly position the instrument over the desired analysis area, as well as save an image of the analysis area along with the elemental composition results
  • Optional integrated small spot collimator to allow users to isolate small components for analysis, even if mounted or integrated into a larger context (standard small spot is 5mm analysis area; some models can be configured with 3mm and 8mm spots as well)
  • TITAN Detector Shield protects the analysis window on the front of the analyzer and—most importantly—the detector, ensuring protection from a puncture or damaged detector. Detector replacement can be very expensive, but the TITAN Detector Shield allows you to protect your detector even when conducting analysis directly on sharp or rough materials. Now you can fearlessly analyze metal turnings right in the bulk bin, and so much more!
