The Mini-Z series of analyzers, a series of compact benchtop wavelength dispersive XRF analyzers, are designed for analyzing specific single elements. Since the optics are configured optimally to a specific element, this series enables high precision and low detection limits.
It is possible to configure Mini-Z as a Si analyzer such as for coated Si on paper or plastic, an Al analyzer such as for coated Al on paper or plastic, a Ni analyzer such as for Ni coating or plating, a Cl analyzer, a P analyzer for biofuels or a Zr analyzer such as for Zr coating.
The Rigaku Mini-Z series benchtop WDXRF spectrometers are completely contained X-ray generating systems. Safety and interlocks “X-RAY ON” indicators are present in order to protect operators from being exposed to X-rays being produced.
The key features of the Mini-Z series, Benchtop single element wavelength dispersive XRF analyzer are:
- Exceptional repeatability
- Wide analysis range
- High-resolution, wavelength dispersive optics
- Excellent LLD
- Peak and background measurements
- Easy-to-operate software
- No cooling water, plug-n-play
- Light weight and compact body
- No complex sample preparation required (reagent treatment, etc.)
The applications of the Mini-Z series, benchtop single element WDXRF analyzer are:
- 10-Day repeatability data from the optimized Mini-Z Sulfur Analyzer on a 1 ppm ultra-low sulfur Conostan diesel standard
- Analysis of low concentration sulfur in automotive fuels by mini-z sulfur analyzer according to ASTM D2622-10
- Analysis of P, S, Cl in biodiesel
- Precision data from the Rigaku Mini-Z Sulfur Analyzer for ultra-low sulfur levels in fuels
