X-ray tubes

Pioneers in X-ray tube design since 1917​

Malvern Panalytical is the only manufacturer of analytical X-ray systems that develops and manufactures high-power X-ray tubes. Our tube factory, based in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, celebrated its 100th anniversary of tube R & D and manufacturing in 2017. ​

We manufacture X-ray tubes for X-ray fluorescence and X-ray diffraction analysis as well as other industrial applications like inspection, non-destructive testing and gauging. We are proud to supply X-ray tubes for Malvern Panalytical instrumentation as well as other analytical brands in the market. Next to our standard models, X-ray tubes can be customized according to specific demands. X-ray tubes can be ordered as single items, but also in small or large quantities based on volume.

Our diverse range of X-ray tubes are available in these options​:

  • glass and metal-ceramic​
  • low, medium and high power (10 - 4000 Watt)​
  • various high voltages (30 - 60 – 100 kV)​
  • side window, end window, target transmission 
  • Microfocus​
  • various focus types (broad, normal, fine and mini focus)​
  • many anode types (a.o. Sc, Ti, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Cu, Mo, Rh, Ag, Gd, W, Au)


How you benefit​

  • High performing, safe and superior quality control you can trust​
  • Optimized design and performance for your X-ray instruments​
  • For instance, tailored tube design and configuration for optimizing your X-ray instrument footprint​
  • Also, custom solutions like tailoring anode materials for selective excitation for elements of interest ​
  • Assured reliable supply of X-ray tubes ​
  • Guaranteed supply of X-ray tubes for the lifetime of your instrument​
