ZSX Primus II Tube-Above Wavelength Dispersive X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometer

The Primus II offers quick rapid quantitative determination of minor and major atomic elements from beryllium (Be) through uranium (U), in a broad range of sample types with minimal standards.

ZSX Primus II features a novel optics-above configuration. There is no need to worry about down time or a contaminated beam path because of sample chamber maintenance. The optics-above geometry eliminates cleaning worries and increases up time.

The Primus II offers excellent performance with the flexibility for analyzing highly complicated samples and features a 30 micron tube, which is the thinnest end-window tube available in the industry, for exceptional light element (low-Z) detection limits. Integrated with highly sophisticated mapping package to detect inclusions and homogeneity, the ZSX Primus II enables easy detailed investigation of samples that provide analytical insights not easily obtained by other analytical methodologies. Available multi-spot analysis also helps eliminate sampling errors in inhomogeneous materials.

SQX Fundamental Parameters with EZ-scan Software

EZ-scan enables users to study unknown samples without any prior setup. This feature is time saving as it requires only a few clicks of the mouse and a sample name to be entered. Integrated with SQX fundamental parameters software, it offers the most precise and rapid XRF results possible. SQX can automatically correct all matrix effects including line overlaps. SQX can also correct for secondary excitation effect by photoelectrons (light and ultra-light elements), varying atmospheres, impurities and different sample sizes. Improved accuracy is achieved using matching library and perfect scan analysis programs.

Key Features

The product features of the Primus II are:

  • Analysis of elements from Be to U
  • Tube above optics minimizes contamination issues
  • Small footprint uses less valuable lab space
  • Micro analysis to analyze samples as small as 500 µm
  • 30µm tube enables superior light element performance
  • Mapping feature for elemental topography/distribution
  • Helium seal means the optics are always under vacuum
