Price-performance breakthrough in elemental analysis

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

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

For this reason, we are providing you with the information on the latest in the Jordan Valley range of X-ray fluorescence (XRF) elemental analysers which are supplied and supported here in the UK by Staplethorne.

Jordan Valley 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:
