Malvern Panalytical - Spectroscopy - Axios Fast

Do you need non-destructive analysis of chemical composition in seconds because of time-critical process control or running sample high-throughputs? With up to 28 elements measured simultaneously in concentration ranges from ppm to 100%, the PANalytical Axios FAST simultaneous WDXRF spectrometer is the ideal solution. Accurate and robust analysis, ease of operation by less-experienced staff and high uptime go hand in hand with a low cost of ownership.

With analysis results being available in just a few seconds, the Axios FAST elemental analyzer is the ideal tool for time-critical applications and high sample throughput analysis environments. Main application areas include steel and metals alloy production as well as geological or commercial laboratories where hundreds of samples need to be analyzed every day.

DKSH is the exclusive distributor in Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.

Key Features

With fast sample handling and outstanding operational reliability, the Axios FAST simultaneous XRF spectrometer is the first choice for high-speed analytical control.

  • Continuous loading via turret mechanism
  • 168 position VRC sample changer, with flexible tray loading for unattended batch analysis
  • Direct loading
  • Sample barcode reader for fast, error-free sample loading and data entry
  • Simultaneous measurement of up to 28 elements, with a minimum of 2 second measurement per sample
  • High sensitivity HiPer channels for light-element analysis
  • Analytical flexibility with the option of up to 4 goniometers
  • Range of X-ray anode materials (Rh, Cr, Mo, Au) enables highest performance for specific application

Designed for process critical analysis, Axios FAST is manufactured to the highest quality standards, incorporating innovative technology to prevent and minimize downtime.

  • SST-mAX with ZETA technology - eliminating tube drift and reducing calibration maintenance
  • CHI-BLUE X-ray tube window coating for increased X-ray tube durability and corrosion resistance
  • Dust removal device removes dust from samples prior to measurement, minimizing dust entry to the system, maximizing uptime
  • Compact measurement chamber with externally mounted channels – allows unrestricted access to critical components without compromising the vacuum system -allowing rapid post-maintenance stabilization

Axios FAST operates using the latest version of PANalytical’s proven SuperQ XRF software, renowned for its highly intuitive interface and menu. Even inexperienced personnel can carry out routine analyses with a minimum of instruction, yet the software still contains the analytical power and capabilities needed to meet the most experienced users’ requirements.

Axios FAST’s dedicated software and hardware interfaces allow flexible connection to sample transport devices and host computers, for fully automated analysis. Axios FAST is also the basis of the TEAMworks (total element analyzing module) solution that combines OES and WDXRF.
