May 10 2012 Read 658 Times
Rigaku exhibited its benchtop lines of X-ray diffraction (XRD) and X-ray fluorescence (XRF) instrumentation, together with a line of handheld and portable Raman spectrometers, at Pittcon 2013.
Rigaku Americas Corporation showcased the fifth generation Rigaku MiniFlex benchtop X-ray diffractometer and the Rigaku Supermini200 benchtop wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) spectrometer. These powerful, transportable instruments deliver speed and sensitivity through innovative technology and packaging. The 600W MiniFlex is not only the most powerful system of its type, but is the only one with an available sample changer. The Supermini200 is the only commercially available benchtop WDXRF spectrometer.
Applied Rigaku Technologies introduced a new low-cost benchtop energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) spectrometer, the Rigaku NEX QC+. This compact elemental analyser delivers rapid quantitative determination of sodium (11Na) to uranium (92U) in solids, liquids, powders and alloys.
Specifically designed for routine quality control applications, the new Rigaku NEX QC+ features an intuitive ‘icon-driven’ touch screen interface for easy operation, and a built-in printer for convenience. The 50kV X-ray tube and Peltier cooled silicon drift detector (SDD) deliver exceptional short-term repeatability and long-term reproducibility with excellent element peak resolution. The ART division also introduced a new and advanced EDXRF process analyser, the Rigaku NEX OL, for on-line, multi-element analysis of aluminum (13Al) to uranium (92U) in process liquids or for coating thickness and elemental composition in web and coil applications.
Rigaku Raman Technologies, a leading provider of innovative handheld Raman spectrometers, showcased a new and advanced version of its flagship FirstGuard™ handheld Raman analyser. Featuring an updated architecture and several software upgrades, the new FirstGuard delivers the industry’s most comprehensive analysis by being the first handheld device equipped with 1064nm wavelength excitation. Complementing these product improvements, RRT has a new manufacturing facility in Tucson, Arizona.
