Direct insight in your production process
On-line liquid analysis with the Epsilon Xflow gives the solution for fast and accurate control of your process parameters. Increased regulations and quality specifications drive the need for a continue process flow. The Epsilon Xflow enables real-time insight to manage your production processes more efficient and reduce operational costs.
- Simultaneous multi-element analysis
- Real-time results
- Leading EDXRF technology
- High repeatability
Epsilon Xflow spectrometer is offered with tailored solutions for specific industries as petrochemicals, polymers, mining, metals, food and environmental.
Blending sharpness for fuels and lubrication oils
In oil refining operations reduction of sulfur ‘giveaway’ can be achieved by improvement of blending sharpness for compliance to Tier 3, Euro VI and other environmental regulations. Excellent repeatability at low sulfur level, visualized in the graph, ensures sharper blending and thus less giveaway.
Monitoring of liquids and liquors during ore processing
Processing of ores and concentrates requires frequent and accurate monitoring to ensure highest efficiency and minimal costs.
Epsilon Xflow enables on-line control of the composition of processing liquids, liquors and reagents under rough process conditions.
Mine wastewater control
Keeping the environmental footprint minimal and protect life around mining operations from harmful elements, constant online monitoring of the quality of mine wastewater is mandatory.
Epsilon Xflow can detect traces of toxic metals traces and other elements to enable immediate counteractions to prevent environmental damage.
Monitoring of key minerals in liquid food products
Nutrient and mineral fortification are essential steps during the production of many food products. Accurate fortification combined with homogeneous mixing will ensure that the final product always meets the label claim.
Epsilon Xflow provides on-line monitoring of key minerals controlled in liquid products including potassium, calcium and iron.
Elemental analysis in your process
X-ray fluorescence (XRF) is a non-destructive elemental analysis technology which allows measuring your process streams without any loss or chemical/physical changes. The resulting real-time on-line analysis, provides fast optimization of many processes parameters and product properties.
Highly repeatable and accurate with low maintenance
The proven and robust Epsilon 3X technology used in the Epsilon Xflow is powered by the latest advances in excitation and detection technology. A well designed optical path, a wide range of excitation capabilities for light and heavier elements and a fast high-resolution SDD detector system contribute to the power of the Epsilon 3X. The sum of all these innovations results in highly repeatable and accurate results with low maintenance.

Laboratory performance in every climate
Harsh conditions are common in plant environments. Several different features enable the analyzer to cope with harsh and changing climate conditions:
- Real-time corrections for temperature and air-pressure variations
- Heated electronics for operation in cold environments
- Extra cooling possibilities to handle tropical conditions
Monitoring of liquids and liquors in mining operations
Processing of ores and concentrates requires frequent and accurate monitoring to ensure highest efficiency and minimal costs. Epsilon Xflow enables on-line control of the composition of processing liquids, liquors, reagents and waste water under rough process conditions.
Real-time analysis of liquors and reagents during ore processing
To extract metals like copper, nickel or uranium from ores, aggressive and often highly acidic liquids are utilized. The Epsilon Xflow can cope with challenging process conditions and still offers the required accuracy and stability over longer periods of operation. When disturbing impurities are detected, the multi-elemental capability of the analyzer enables fast counteractions. The on-line analyzer features direct and accurate feedback of the leaching process and saves expensive reagents, to lower the costs of the processing per 1 ton of material.
Mine waste water control
Constant on-line monitoring of the quality of mine waste water is mandatory for keeping the environmental footprint minimal and for protecting life around mining operations from harmful elements. Epsilon Xflow can detect traces of toxic metals and other elements on the spot and enables immediate counteractions to prevent environmental damage and penalties.
