High sample throughput

With fast sample handling and outstanding operational reliability, the Axios FAST simultaneous XRF spectrometer is the first choice for high-speed analytical control.

  • Continuous loading via turret mechanism
  • 168 position VRC sample changer, with flexible tray loading for unattended batch analysis
  • Direct loading
  • Sample barcode reader for fast, error-free sample loading and data entry

Enhanced performance

  • Simultaneous measurement of up to 28 elements, with a minimum of 2 second measurement per sample
  • High sensitivity HiPer channels for light-element analysis
  • Analytical flexibility with the option of up to 4 goniometers
  • Range of X-ray anode materials (Rh, Cr, Mo, Au) enables highest performance for specific application

Enhanced instrument uptime

Designed for process critical analysis, Axios FAST is manufactured to the highest quality standards, incorporating innovative technology to prevent and minimize downtime.

  • SST-mAX with ZETA technology - eliminating tube drift and reducing calibration maintenance
  • CHI-BLUE X-ray tube window coating for increased X-ray tube durability and corrosion resistance
  • Dust removal device removes dust from samples prior to measurement, minimizing dust entry to the system, maximizing uptime
  • Compact measurement chamber with externally mounted channels – allows unrestricted access to critical components without compromising the vacuum system -allowing rapid post-maintenance stabilization

Proven and dedicated software for limited user intervention

Axios FAST operates using the latest version of Malvern Panalytical’s proven SuperQ XRF software, renowned for its highly intuitive interface and menu. Even inexperienced personnel can carry out routine analyses with a minimum of instruction, yet the software still contains the analytical power and capabilities needed to meet the most experienced users’ requirements.

Made for automation

Axios FAST’s dedicated software and hardware interfaces allow flexible connection to sample transport devices and host computers, for fully automated analysis. Axios FAST is also the basis of the TEAMworks (total element analyzing module) solution that combines OES and WDXRF. 

For analysis where seconds matter

Axios FAST expresses its analytical power by performing in high throughput environments like service labs, with the analysis of mining samples (e.g. Fe-ore, Ni-ore) but also in a wide range of production and quality control applications involved in the iron and steel industry, where immediate sample analysis is needed. Typical applications are: wide range calibration for low alloy, ferritic and austenitic steels, wide range calibration of Al alloys, wide range calibration of titanium alloys, analysis of low alloy steels, analysis of stainless steels, analysis of tool steels, analysis of cast iron and analysis of iron ore samples prepared as fused beads.

Standards (reference materials)

Cu-base-FP

Accurate elemental analysis of Cu metals

Image

‘Copper-base’ (Cu-base) is a term used to describe a range of alloys where Cu is the principal component. In order to make the materials suitable for different applications (e.g. the manufacture of coinage, bells, a wide range of mechanical equipment and electrical wiring), Cu is normally alloyed with elements such as Sn, Zn, Ni, Al, and Pb. During the production process fast chemical analysis is needed to minimize errors in production and to maximize production yield. The Cu-base-FP package (including applicable calibration standards) covers the analysis of this wide range of Cu alloys by using the Fundamental Parameter (FP) model.

Quick and error-free proactive monitoring for your fusion instruments

XRF laboratories must assure the quality of their analytical results and ensure accurate and precise data by using quality control sample regularly.

Obtaining the wrong analytical results can affect manufacturing and commercial decisions which can be very costly. Moreover, the Fusion-XRF process remains offline until the source of the variability is thoroughly identified and eliminated. When the analytical results are found to be outside the predefined criteria, planned actions must be taken. Since the analytical results can be affected by a large number of factors, troubleshooting steps may oftentimes become expensive and time consuming.
