Benchtop XRD X-Ray Diffractometer for Mineral Analysis – Rigaku MiniFlex

Key Features

  • Powerful 600W X-ray source
  • In-built chiller
  • Compact design
  • Fail-safe radiation enclosure
  • Simple installation and training
  • Factory-aligned goniometer

The sixth generation Rigaku MiniFlex benchtop X-ray diffractometer is a multipurpose powder diffraction instrument capable of producing publication quality data. One area where it excels is the analysis of mineralogical and geological materials where it can determine:

  • Crystalline phase identification (phase ID)
  • Phase quantification
  • Percent (%) crystallinity,
  • Crystallite size and strain
  • Lattice parameter refinement
  • Rietveld refinement
  • Molecular structure

With its in-built chiller, the MiniFlex can be easily integrated into minesite labs where it can be used to provide quantitative mineralogy and influence geological drilling programs and exploration campaigns.

Optional accessories that can benefit mineralogical analyses include:

  • 8-position auto sample changer with sample spinner
  • HyPix-400 HPAD (hybrid Pixel Array Detector) which can minimise the effects of coarse grained and oriented samples

The Miniflex has proven itself In research

It is widely used in research, especially in material science and chemistry, as well as in industry for research and quality control. It is the newest addition to the MiniFlex series of benchtop X-ray diffraction analyzers from Rigaku, which began with the introduction of the original MiniFlex XRD system decades ago.
