Bruker - S8 LION - Simultaneous WD-XRF Spectrometer

The S8 LION´s simultaneous wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) spectrometer provides the fastest time-to-result for process and quality control in the cement, minerals & mining and metal industries.

Based on multichannel technology the S8 LION delivers, for up to 26 elements, very precise and accurate results within shortest measurement time. For cement industry the S8 LION can additionally measure the free lime concentration in raw materials, intermediate compounds and final products. High savings on energy costs and reduction of the CO2 emissions are achievable with these results. For maximum analytical flexibility, the optional Multielement ChannelTM collects the entire spectrum of each sample, similar to an elemental fingerprint.

SampleCareTM ensures maximum uptime and productivity with the tube-above-sample setup to protect the S8 LION against all kinds of contamination. It also positions the sample with absolute zero tolerance for best precision on results.

Dedicated to industrial use, the S8 LION combines ease-of-use with highest analytical speed and highest reliability. The TouchControlTM interface allows easy, intuitive, failsafe operation without training. Several languages for the user interface are available including English, Spanish, Chinese, Russian and Portuguese.

The simultaneous WDXRF spectrometer S8 LION is the perfect analytical tool for rapid, precise and reliable process and quality control for the industry.
