Automated X-ray Diffractometer
for high sample turnaround
The D8 ENDEAVOR is made for extremely simple operation, high measurement speed at lowest detection limits and fast sample turnaround. The system is well suited for multi-user operation in industry, academia and research. For industrial process optimization and quality control, the D8 ENDEAVOR can be interfaced to automated sample preparation systems, which feed the samples without further operator actions. This guarantees highest integrity, homogeneity and quality of sample preparation and presentation.
This analyzer easily fits all kinds of laboratory and environmental conditions
The D8 ENDEAVOR, ready-to-use and capable of any circumstances.
Not only is the D8 ENDEAVOR made for rough 24/7 operation. Under the hood you will find the finest Bruker XRD technology that is key for satisfying highest analytical demands.
Daily use of the D8 ENDEAVOR has the operator in mind and is not exclusive to the XRD expert.
Turn-key versions of the D8 ENDEAVOR are available for the cement, minerals, pharmaceutical, Aluminum, and metals industries.
XRD combined with TOPAS Rietveld analysis is nowadays the most powerful technique for doing quantitative phase analysis of hotmeal, bypass, kilndust, clinker and cements.
Combined with the XRD Method Package Cement the new D8 ENDEAVOR is the perfect solution for the industry.
It offers direct phase analysis along the entire production process, ranging from raw materials, intermediate products like hotmeal and dusts (REACH) to clinker and the finalized cements. Analytical highlights are the capability to distinguish the Alite polymorphs M1 & M3 and the quantification of amorphous phases by the proprietary PONKCS method.
The most direct method of mineral identification and quantification is powder X-ray diffraction (XRD) with the D8 ENDEAVOR Minerals.
Complex geologic materials can reliably be analyzed using TOPAS quantitative analysis.
Furthermore, cluster analysis techniques can be used to quickly and automatically analyze large amounts of data for similarities and generate exploration mappings.
X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) is a widely used analytical method for the process and quality control of making steel.
Knowing the exact FeO concentration in the raw material is key to cut the greenhouse-gas emission of iron plants.
The FeO amount can directly be calculated from the stoichiometry and concentration of the minerals. These values determined by rapid XRD makes it a very fast alternative to titration.
Controlling aluminum production is a crucial analytical task that demands a robust X-ray diffraction (XRD) solution.
This is due to the harsh environment in a smelter, where the XRD instrument needs to be located, and the enormous sample throughput required to successively probe hundreds of smelter cells.
The D8 ENDEAVOR addresses these challenges with reliable mechanics and technological innovations that reduce measurement times and expand analysis capabilities.
The D8 ENDEAVOR is best suited to monitor lowest amounts of free silica, a material that causes lung cancer and other severe health issues.
Highest accuracy and a lowest detection limit are achieved with the D8 ENDEAVOR equipped with the LYNXEYE XE-T detector.
To complete the silica solution, Bruker offers sample holders for different filter types and a complete method for the DIFFRAC.DQUANT software, which is compliant with NIOSH 7500 requirements and also allow segment calibrations.

Sample preparation efforts for the D8 ENDEAVOR are minimal, as a wide range of sample sizes and types can be handled simultaneously. The gripper that loads the specimen holders from the magazine to the measurement position automatically detects different heights of specimen holders.
The full-featured, and no compromise DIFFRAC.SUITE software package provides the easiest measurement method creation and most powerful and accurate analysis results. All covered with 21CFR Part11 compliance, if required. The DIFFRAC.SUITE MEASUREMENT CENTER, DIFFRAC.EVA for general data evaluation and cluster analysis, but also the COD database for phase identification are always included with two licenses for industrial laboratories and 10 licenses for academic users. Additional licenses are optionally available. DIFFRAC.TOPAS is used for the quantification of complex multi-phase mixture, whereas DIFFRAC.DQUANT offers norm compliant analysis for the industry that are based on calibrations, and therefore most precise.
For industrial process and quality control the D8 ENDEAVOR can be equipped with TOPAS BBQ for automated Black Box Quantification. Also we offer the Bruker turn-key package for the analysis of construction materials that comes with 10 ready-to-run methods that are prepared by our Cement application specialists. The DIFFRAC.SUITE software may be operated in file or database mode and includes a RESULTS MANAGER for multi-sample reporting and time series representations.
