Epsilon 1 Mining
Accurate and X-ray safe quantification of ores and rocks
Looking for a more accurate and X-ray safe instrument for quantifying ores and rocks?
If so, the Epsilon 1 is the ideal analytical solution for bringing more accurate results closer to the mines. With its small footprint and very simple installation requirements, the benchtop instrument can be located very close to where the analysis is needed, for example, in the quarry or mine-site office.
With little or no sample preparation required, Epsilon 1 allows screening and accurate quantification of ores, rocks, stream-sediment samples and even blast-hole chips. The Epsilon 1 is an easy to operate instrument with guaranteed peace-of-mind X-ray safety. Without the need for additional chemicals or operating gasses, the system provides superior precision relative to basic wet-chemical techniques.
The instrument is calibrated with Omnian, Malvern Panalytical’s market-leading standardless analysis package, used on our more advanced instruments. As an out-of-the-box solution, Omnian can be used to analyze a wide variety of sample compositions from sodium to americium across the periodic table.
|Sample handling||X-ray tube||Detector||Software features|
|Liquids, solids, slurries, loose powders, filters||High-stability ceramic side window||High-resolution, typical 135 eV||Operator mode with big buttons for easy operation|
|Highly repeatable sample positioning||50 µm thin window (Be) for higher intensities||8 µm thin window (Be) for higher intensities||Advanced mode with many features|
|Spillage protection against powders and liquids||Max voltage of 50 kV, ideal for analyzing heavier elements||High count rate detector capacity for faster analysis||Omnian, Stratos, FingerPrint and Enhanced Data Security options|
Standards (Reference materials)
Epsilon software is the XRF analysis software platform that is used with PANalytical’s range of Epsilon 1 and Epsilon 4 benchtop EDXRF systems.
Omnian software enables users to achieve the best possible analysis when dedicated methods or certified standards do not exist.
A FingerPrint software module combined with an Epsilon 4 EDXRF system is ideal for material testing when analysis speed is important but the actual composition is not of interest.
