The novel S8 LION is the first truly simultaneous X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrometer for precise, high-speed elemental analysis for process control in metal production and foundries on the market. It offers high quantitative precision in combination with elemental flexibility for up-to-date production control, covering almost all elements of the periodic table in a single, rapid measurement.
Accuracy and Precision for Process Control in Metal Production
Shortest time to results, best accuracy and unmatched analytical precision are the key demands for successful process control. The S8 LION combines in its new design proven single element channels with the new Multielement Channel™. With 4 kW high excitation power and dedicated element channels the S8 LION delivers unmatched precision for essential elements in metal production, while its innovative Multielement Channel simultaneously analyzes the additional elemental fingerprint, all in one run in less than 40 seconds. This advantage compared to conventional simultaneous XRF spectrometers brings essential benefits for process control in steel and non-ferrous metal production. With its unique parallel data acquisition in dual mode, the S8 LION offers enhanced data safety for better cost efficiency due to improved process control.
Ease of use and Reliability
The S8 LION utilizes TouchControl™ for ease of use and reliability. TouchControl™ enables multilingual (English, Chinese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, etc.), simple and essentially fail-safe operation via an integrated touch screen, thus requiring minimal user training. SampleCare™ 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.
Seamless Integration with Automation
The S8 LION is designed for quick and seamless integration into the plant automation, providing best connectivity. The sample magazine of the S8 LION can be fed by robot or belt from the back of the instrument. The combination between optical emission spectrometry (OES) and XRF brings process control in metal production to perfection. Through the integrated Ethernet connection, the results can be directly sent to the LIMS or to the plant control software, in combination with the OES results. With the S8 LION, analysis is easily arranged in line.
