ElvaX 3

ElvaX 3 is the next-generation benchtop x-ray fluorescence analyzer. It offers a new level of analysis accuracy, speed and detection limits for a wide range of elements (from Na (Z=11) to U (Z=92)) due to the new 60 kV, 1000 uA x-ray tube. Powerful hardware combined with unique software algorithms make ElvaX 3 a multipurpose lab instrument for elemental analysis of various materials including solids, powders, liquids etc.

User advantages

  • Worlds fastest XRF analyzer highest accuracy within the shortest measurement time, excellent precision;
  • 60 kV X-ray tube voltage allows to analyze rare earth elements using K-series and greatly improves sensitivity to high-energy elements from Pd (Z=46) to Ba (Z=56);
  • Up to 1000 μA X-ray tube current improves accuracy and detection limits for light elements (Na, Mg, Al, Si, P, S) and allows to use small-size collimators (<1mm) for small spot analysis;
  • Automatic collimator changer for small spot analysis of jewelry, welds etc.;
  • Helium purge feature improves sensitivity to light elements (Na, Mg, Al, Si, P, S) several times;
  • 16-position automatic sample changer increases productivity of your lab;
  • Sample spinner for analysis of inhomogeneous samples;
  • Excellent calibration stability, compensation of influence of ambient temperature and pressure;
  • CCD camera for precise sample positioning;
