Epsilon 1 is a star-performing benchtop XRF instrument for the analysis of potassium, calcium, iron and zinc in milk powder.

The long-term repeatability for all four elements demonstrate the high stability of the Epsilon 1, even at trace level concentrations.

Non-destructive analysis

The measurements are carried out directly on the solid milk powder with little to no sample preparation. Since XRF is a non-destructive technique, the sample can also be measured subsequently by other analytical techniques, if required.

Maximum sensitivity

The thin window Ag anode X-ray tube, designed and manufactured by Malvern Panalytical, ensures high quality and sensitivity. The 50 kV X-ray tube and generator is ideal for exciting higher energy elements like iron and zinc, resulting in faster analysis times.
Maximum sensitivity

Self contained system

A built-in computer running Microsoft Windows 7 with powerful CPU and 120 GB hard drive ensures flexibility to store and handle thousands of results. The high-resolution, 10.4” LCD touch screen is ideal for easy walk-up and operation.
Self contained system

Easy communication

USB and network connections for use of standard computer peripherals for extended use, application development and seated operator.

Spillage protection

In order to shield the delicate heart of the system from spillage, a protection foil is in place. In case of spillage, the foil can be replaced easily by the operator.
