Compact XRF spectrometer redefines elemental analysis

Apr 16 2024

Malvern Panalytical introduced Revontium, the world's premier compact XRF spectrometer, at analytica Munich. This ground-breaking instrument offers powerful elemental analysis within a compact 0.4 m2 footprint, striking the perfect balance between precision and efficiency. Revolutionising elemental analysis, Revontium provides high-quality results comparable to larger floor-standing systems while significantly reducing costs and environmental impact.

X-ray fluorescence (XRF) technology is renowned for its non-destructive elemental analysis capabilities. However, traditional floor-standing instruments come with high energy and maintenance costs. Revontium stands apart as the only compact XRF spectrometer delivering comparable data quality to larger systems, all within a significantly smaller footprint.

Revontium provides over 25% lower ownership costs compared to traditional XRF, AAS, and ICP instruments. Its streamlined design reduces the need for consumables and simplifies maintenance and sample preparation. Unlike traditional instruments, Revontium requires fewer consumables, no daily calibration, and operates in ambient conditions, making it an environmentally friendly and cost-effective solution.

Ideal for industries such as cement, mining & minerals, and pharmaceuticals, Revontium enables compliance with stringent environmental regulations and test methods. It opens new avenues for elemental analysis, serving as an alternative or complementary technique to existing methods like ICP and AAS.

Lieven Kempenaers, Product Manager XRF at Malvern Panalytical, commented: "Revontium delivers powerful elemental analysis in a compact format, offering ease of use, analytical rigor, and low ownership costs. Our team is committed to supporting customers in maximising the benefits of Revontium."

Mark Fleiner, President of Malvern Panalytical, added: "Revontium expands our XRF instrument offering, providing users with optimal precision and efficiency. This ground-breaking instrument unlocks endless possibilities for elemental analysis across diverse industries."
