Aeris Cement edition
Optimize cement production
XRD directly probes the mineralogical composition of cement and its intermediates. This mineralogical information allows you to judge the physical properties to better control the kiln when for example using alternative fuels. It additionally facilitates the quality assurance of (blended) cements. The Cement edition of Aeris is an easy-to-use and automatable benchtop XRD instrument for every cement plant.
Seamless integration in automation
The only automatable benchtop diffractometer for high sample throughput
Aeris can be connected with a belt or a robot for fast and automated sample processing.
The power of combining technologies
The twin solution provides full material characterization by adding elemental composition information from Zetium to the phase identification by Aeris.
Industry standard sample holders tailored to your needs
• Collection of 51.5 mm sample holders
• 40 mm sample holders
Fast analysis, maximum uptime
Rapid analysis minimizes feedback loops and allows early intervention for process optimization. Standard analysis time for clinker or cement is just 5 minutes.
Uptime of the analytical equipment is key for reliable process control. From the ground up, Aeris has been designed for maximum uptime.
Strong and robust
The only benchtop XRD instrument with external sample loading for ultimate dust protection of the heart of the instrument.
Minimum of infrastructural requirements
No cooling water, no chiller, no compressed air - the only thing you need is a single-phase power socket.
Compatible with all common industry standards; from LIMS interfacing protocols to various industry-standard sample holders.
An easy touch
The most intuitive X-ray diffractometer
With the built-in touch screen your results are always just a few taps away:
1. Place your sample
2. Select measurement program
3. View results
Aeris Cement Edition
Produce greener and more efficient
Strength, setting properties, hydration properties and chemical resistance of cement are directly linked to the cement mineralogy (see table below). XRD is the method for a direct probing of these minerals in cement, allowing better prediction of the physical properties of the final product already in the production phase and facilitating a more efficient and greener production process.
The Aeris Cement edition is your partner at every stage of the cement production process, from raw meal, clinker and (blended) cement to the final product.
Aeris Cement edition
The first detector to bring 0D-1D-2D and 3D data to your diffractometer
The PIXcel3D is a unique 2D solid-state hybrid pixel detector. Each pixel is 55 microns x 55 microns and the detector array is 255 x 255 pixels. The detector, now based on Medipix3 technology, brings unrivalled signal to noise with its point spread function of one pixel and multiple energy discrimination levels.
Medipix3 technology brings:
• An increase in range of detection energies from Cr to Cu
• Improved energy resolution
• Increased linearity range
• Improved detection efficiency
• Documented (published) radiation hardness studies
