ARL 9900 IntelliPower Technical Features

X-Ray System

Designed with efficiency and dependability in mind:

  • An optical system that is very sensitive continuously analyzes data and measures data with extreme precision
  • An X-Ray tube is placed above the sample to shield it and the instrument from damage caused by faulty samples, such as metal drill bits or fragile pellets.
  • Well-designed construction ensures maximum dependability and lifespan in use.
  • All elements’ detection limits drop and sensitivity rises as the X-Ray tube approaches the sample. Effective full-spectrum stimulation is produced by the Rh anode, but the most abundant elements are not affected significantly. Excellent radiation transmission efficiency during light element activation is made possible by a very small Be window (50 microns). LoVap technology eliminates the need for any W coating on the interior face of the window ensuring exceptional long-term analytical stability
  • The vacuum chamber used for the analyses has a single lid. There are thus fewer vacuum seals and a lower chance of leaks.
  • Well-managed temperature and vacuum pressure offer superior short- and long-term stability.

Power Supply: A Choice to Suit Any Applications

Instruments from the ARL 9900 Series can be chosen with an integrated high-frequency, medium- or high-power solid-state generator to best fit each application.

  • Installing an additional water chiller is not required as the 1500 W or 2500 W power supply each includes a separate cooling circuit.
  • A 4200 W power supply for applications requiring low detection limits and great performance. At its highest, the conventional generator can generate up to 60 kV/70 mA or 35 kV/120 mA

Sample Introduction: Several Degrees of Automation

  • The sample introduction mechanism is fast, simple to operate, and incredibly reliable, thanks to its 12-position sample changer
  • The large X-Y magazine can automatically handle multiple samples. There are 98 coded positions for samples in cassettes or on designated supports in the X-Y magazine. Coding every site enables independent functioning and reduces the time needed to identify which samples are relevant to a particular study. If needed, this larger magazine can easily take the place of the traditional 12-position arrangement
  • Pressed powders in steel rings can be connected to transport belts using an X-Y sample changer. This fundamental automation is known as ARL SMS-XY
  • For a variety of sample types, the optional ARL SMS-2300, SMS-2500, and SMS-3500 robotic systems provide completely automated sample introduction and preparation
  • The device can automatically perform unattended continuous process monitoring and sound an alert if any anomalies with the SMS settings are found. The entire sample preparation and analysis process is connected via the versatile and very strong ARL SMS-2300 and SMS2500 devices. The most recent automation innovation is the ARL SMS-3500 series, which uses a larger, quicker robot to service an XRF instrument in addition to an OES

Full Microprocessor Control

Putting the Emphasis on Reliability and Ease of Use

With full digital control, the ARL 9900 is a simple device to operate. It also guarantees consistent outcomes from various procedures.

The microprocessor architecture consists of clusters of microprocessors, microcontrollers, and digital signal processors coupled via full duplex links. They oversee the instrument's functioning, manage the integrated diffraction system, monochromators, and goniometers, and routinely verify hundreds of status points.

The OXSAS analysis program sends instructions to the master microprocessor, transferring them to the appropriate cluster. The results of the analysis are shown on the screen.

Fixed Monochromators

High-Speed Simultaneous Analysis

Due to its exclusive focus on identifying and assessing a single element, fixed channels provide excellent sensitivity, quick processing, and quick analysis. ARL 9900 series monochromators can be examined simultaneously by up to 32 or 24 of them if a goniometer is incorporated.

The compact slit-crystal form optimizes the sensitivity and spectral background levels, making it possible to identify components at extremely low concentrations. The most recent detectors guarantee a far more accurate analysis and a wider linearity of response. Using detector gas in conjunction with any element from Na is not required.

Each monochromator is equipped with a mechanism that guarantees exceptional stability throughout the analysis, controlling temperature to within ± 0.1 C. Multilayer synthetic crystals are utilized to investigate the light elements. There are options in the software for deadtime correction, high voltage, and pulse height discrimination.

Goniometers

Very Precise Sequential Analysis

The goniometers can be set up to do qualitative analysis, such as scanning the X-Ray spectrum for components in a given sample, as well as quantitative analysis on individual elements. Two extremely quick and precise gearless goniometers for ARL 9900 series instruments provide standard-less, quantitative, and qualitative analysis.

The Thermo Scientific SmartGonio can analyze elements ranging from F to Am. This little goniometer combines two detectors and three crystals to provide a flexible and inexpensive detecting device. Three SmartGonios can fit within the gadget at once.

The F45 universal goniometer is an appropriate replacement in applications requiring extra crystals and collimators. Up to two universal goniometers can be installed.

Microprocessors utilizing moiré fringe technology enable both goniometers to position the crystal and detector quickly and precisely, producing extremely accurate sequential X-Ray spectroscopy. This design has several significant benefits.

  • Fast positioning: Slewing at a maximum speed of 4800° 2 theta per minute is five times more quickly than a standard goniometer and up to twenty times faster than a scanner
  • Theta/2theta angular link between crystal and detector automatically aligns. Unlike traditional systems, this alignment is done electronically by the microprocessor, so no mechanical modifications are required
  • Rapid qualitative analysis- Continuous digital scanning allows for ultra-fast spectra collection speeds of up to 1200°/min. Peak identification occurs automatically
  • These “no wear” systems maintain consistent angular repeatability (< ± 0.0002°) and precision (0.001°) due to the absence of friction-causing gears
  • High accuracy of peak positions (e.g. 0.01° with LiF crystal)- The analytical peaks are positioned precisely where they should be in principle, offering up to 10 times higher performance than traditional systems
  • Independent crystal and detector rotation enables the installation of two detectors side by side. Secondary collimators in front of detectors improve count rate and resolution
  • The universal goniometer may accommodate up to nine different crystals for specific uses. This enables the analyst to select the optimal crystal for every X-Ray spectra segment. A maximum of four main collimators are available to enhance resolution or intensity (fine, medium, coarse, and extra coarse)

Both goniometers are fully capable of being used to research non-routine objects. Thermo Scientific™ QuantAS and UniQuant™ software packages allow standard-less analysis and backup for fixed channels.

  • To provide angular positioning that guarantees the θ/2θ connection between the crystal and detector, Moiré fringe optical encoders are utilized:
    • No wear
    • No friction
    • Exceptional precision in angular placement
  • Crystal temperature regulation to achieve optimal analytical stability

Two Techniques Integrated in a Single Instrument

XRF and XRD Capability in One Instrument

Integration of XRF and XRD in the same instrument: one sample, one instrument, one analysis for two techniques

Integration of XRF and XRD in the same instrument: one sample, one instrument, one analysis for two techniques. Image Credit: Thermo Fisher Scientific - Elemental and Phase Analysis

The elemental makeup of a sample can be determined via X-Ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis, however, the method of mixing the elements cannot be revealed. The sole way to gather mineralogical information is by X-Ray diffraction.

For instance, a typical crystalline sample's entire calcium or iron content may be ascertained using XRF. The phases or compounds in crystalline materials, such as rocks, minerals, oxides, and products, can be examined using XRD.

Thus, XRD advances the analysis in the same sample by providing details on the contents of CaO, CaCO3, Ca(OH)2, and other Ca phases, as well as the levels of Fe phases, including FeO, Fe2 O3, Fe3 O4, Fe3 C, and other Fe phases. As a result, integrating the findings from both XRF and XRD methods enables a more thorough and accurate evaluation of each particular crystalline sample.

In the past, doing these kinds of studies needed two distinct kinds of X-Ray equipment, which meant regular upkeep and operation at a significant expense to the user. Nevertheless, the combination of both methods in a single ARL 9900 instrument is made possible by the integration of state-of-the-art X-Ray diffraction systems, offering the user several advantages such as:

  • Only one sample introduction
  • Single-user interface for both techniques
  • Combined elemental and phase data into a single analysis bulletin
  • Minimized floor space
  • No water cooler at mid-power levels

Compact Integrated XRD Systems

Productive, Precise

The tiny integrated XRD equipment's Moiré fringe positioning system makes accurate qualitative and quantitative scans possible. Sample alignment issues are avoided by precise sample positioning and parallel beam X-Ray geometry.

Analytical sensitivity and repeatability are improved while working in a vacuum at a constant temperature, especially for fragile phases like free lime. Frequently reported use examples include:

  • Iron phases in DRI (Direct Reduced Iron) processes
  • Phases related to electrolysis of aluminum
  • Other mineral and mining applications
  • Amorphous content in GBFS and slag cement
  • Free lime in clinker and in slags
  • Clinker phases (C3S, C2S, C3A andC4AF) for which the ClinkerQuant calibration is available
  • Fe2+ determination in sinters

One particular version of the small Integrated XRD system is referred to as the Free Lime-Quartz-Limestone Channel. Free lime determination in clinker and slags, limestone additions in cement, hot meal calcination monitoring, and quartz content in raw meals are still possible, but at a reduced cost.

Quantitative Analysis

Accuracy Made Easy

Analytical programs and calibrations are defined using the Analytical Assistant, an online tool. Calibration curves are constructed with the multivariable regression (MVR) tool.

Correction models are used to reduce the influence of interfering components in multicomponent matrices while increasing analytical accuracy. These types of models are:

  • Line overlap correction
  • Additive correction on intensities
  • Additive correction on concentrations
  • Multiplicative correction on intensities
  • Multiplicative correction on concentrations
  • Multiplicative and additive corrections on concentrations
  • Comprehensive LAchance (COLA), which can be used with the NBSGSC fundamental parameters program to simulate analytical calibrations for homogeneous materials. It currently has three-word alphas available. Inter-element correction factors, or theoretical alphas, are computed and employed as fixed coefficients in the MVR. This increases analytical precision and reduces the number of standards required to create calibrations
