Cost-Effective, Multipurpose X-ray Diffraction - X'Pert³ Powder

PANalytical’s latest X-ray diffraction system is based on the completely renewed X’Pert platform. With features such as on-board electronics, compliance with most recent and stringent X-ray and motion safety norms, with advancements in reliability and eco-friendliness, the X’Pert³ Powder is ready for the future.

The system provides an economical solution for high quality, increased throughput phase quantification and identification, grazing incidence diffraction, residual stress analysis, X-ray reflectometry, pair distribution function analysis, small angle X-ray scattering and non-ambient diffraction.

Key Features

The key features of X’Pert³ Powder are:

  • Future-proof, eco-friendly, maximum uptime - X’Pert³ Powder uses the same control electronics as the Empyrean platform, offering ultimate system flexibility for future applications and services. Furthermore, the X’Pert³ Powder complies with the latest and most stringent safety norms.
  • The X’Pert³ Powder now uses the patented corrosion-resistant incident smart beam path (CRISP) technology.
  • CRISP prevents X-ray-induced corrosion on any of the incident beam path components, from the X–ray tube, tube housing to incident beam optics.
  • In combination with the lead-free tube tower and PANalytical’s eco-friendly tube disposal policy this guarantees ‘green’ operation. Furthermore, by preventing the X-ray-induced corrosion, CRISP maximizes the uptime of your investment.
  • Another feature of the new X’Pert³ Powder, guaranteeing maximum uptime, is the use of pneumatic shutters and beam attenuators.
  • By employing the second generation PreFIX adopted from the Empyrean platform, the X’Pert³ Powder is the economical solution for multipurpose X-ray diffraction platforms with unsurpassed versatility.
  • Non-ambient chambers are available that can cool samples down to 12K or heat up to 2300°C. Also strain stages and high-pressure stages are available.
  • The X’Pert³ Powder comes with a full 3kW generator, which offers high-intensity and up to 5 times faster data collection than typical benchtop systems (or up to 3 times faster than 1kW systems).
  • Widest variety of detectors available- The X’Pert³ Powder can be equipped with either point or line detectors. A very cost-effective detector is the sealed Xe proportional detector, while our scintillation detector is very suited for hard radiation applications such as pair distribution function analysis.

Key Applications

The applications of X’Pert³ Powder are:

  • Pair distribution function
  • Easy and fast analysis of complex street drugs
  • Technological solution for combating counterfeit drugs
  • Supporting the pharmaceutical industry with 21 CFR Part 11 compliance readiness
  • Quantitative XRD, respirable silica dust analysis
