New XRF Analyzer Line Released with Website Launch
(Nanowerk News) Celebrating its twentieth year as a leading x-ray fluorescence (XRF) service and support provider, Eastern Applied Research Inc, is pleased to announce the release of the Element Xr analyzer line. The instruments will be featured at the companies newly launched website (www.easternapplied.com) and will offer a new option in XRF; with a focus on providing the best price-to-performance ratio.
The primary analyzers in the Element Xr line of energy dispersive x-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) equipment have been developed to provide solutions for coating thickness measurement needs. A range of options and features are available to meet a variety of applications, from basic single layer coatings to complex coating systems. Two analyzers will have customizable options including variable detection systems, collimators and other critical aspects built around different chambers (one with a slotted design, the second a compact one).
Eastern Applied expects the Element Xr CE-P system to be the most popular because it was developed for the market that Eastern Applied has serviced for many years. The CE-P provides a compact chamber (small footprint) with manual stage movement and it features a proportional counter detector; which is a time-tested solution for economical coating thickness analysis. The approach allows the CE-P to be offered with a top price-to-performance ratio for efficient and precise measurements of thickness and composition – as well as analysis of plating solutions.
"We are pleased to offer new XRF technology that will fit the budgets of companies that require this critical piece of technology," noted Shawn Kramer, Director of Business Development. "Not only have we received positive feedback from our long-term service customers but new organizations we have talked to about the line are excited for the pricing and performance Element Xr offers."
This system will be available for demonstration at the 2011 Sur/Fin Conference (Booth 638, June 13-15) as well as at Eastern Applied's new website: www.easternapplied.com. At the site, visitors can review instrument specifications, application overviews and learn more about x-ray fluorescence. Also highlighted will be the service and support functions that Eastern Applied offers; which includes North American field technicians and an in-house standards laboratory. The new site will allow for more frequent updates on topics critical to users of x-ray fluorescence technology.
