Are you responsible for elemental (chemical) analysis and/or quality control in your organization?

If so, you will be well aware of the financial rewards to your organization of using an appropriate and cost-effective solution for measuring what you need to control.

For this reason, we would like to introduce to you the latest in the Xenemetrix (formerly Jordan Valley) range of X-ray fluorescence (XRF) elemental analyzers which are supplied and supported here in the UK by Staplethorne Ltd, who are experts in XRF analysis and X-ray system design for a range of customers.

Xenemetrix manufactures an innovative range of high quality energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) spectrometers that are setting new standards in performance, reliability and cost-effectiveness. These are used for the non-destructive analysis of the multi-elemental composition of a wide range of materials - rapidly providing essential information to laboratories, process control managers, etc. With increasing demands on quality, and the rising costs of materials and labour, these simple to operate Windows - based XRF instruments, with their minimal sample preparation requirements, provide reliable answers with a minimum of fuss and maintenance.

These XRF products offer the following benefits:

  • Rapid determination of elements from sodium to uranium, with options to analyse down to oxygen
  • Accurate and precise/reproducible results
  • Totally non-destructive technique - sample available for subsequent tests, valuable objects remain intact
  • No sample contact - can be in solid or liquid form
  • Qualitative, semi-quantitative, and quantitative analysis
  • Sensitivity from ppm to major elements
  • Flexible and easy-to-use, even by non-technical personnel.
  • Robust and well proven technology, with portable and liquid nitrogen-free options
  • Local expertise and technical support available here in the UK
  • New performance-to-price ratio not previously available
  • Low cost of labour (non-technical staff can operate)
  • Very low cost of consumables for most applications
