Bruker Announces New ECO Line of X-ray Diffraction (XRD) and X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) Instruments
(Nanowerk News) Bruker today announced the launch of the ECO™ series for X-ray fluorescence, X-ray diffraction and chemical X-ray crystallography – specifically the S8 TIGER ECO™, the D8 ADVANCE ECO™ and the D8 QUEST ECO™ instruments.
The new ECO line features an innovative design enabling low cost of ownership (ECOnomical) and minimized consumption of resources (ECOlogical), while also delivering best-in-class analytical performance. At the same time, all instruments within the ECO line provide uncompromised ease-of-use and high instrument uptime, with superb instrument quality and warranty coverage.
The S8 TIGER ECO offers wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) performance with lower cost of ownership than ever before. Based on Bruker’s “Plug‘n Analyze” technology, the S8 TIGER ECO operates without any need for cooling water and compressed air. With the novel S8 TIGER ECO configurations, Bruker addresses the growing demand for economical instruments for process and quality control in cement plants, the petrochemical industry, and for industrial minerals.
The D8 ADVANCE ECO is the latest member of the comprehensive D8 XRD product family. Based on the market-leading DAVINCI design instrument architecture, it combines the proven high performance of the D8 series with easy extendability and upgradability. The modular design guarantees maximum flexibility for future application demands. The D8 ADVANCE ECO comes with exceptional warranties, impressive safety features, and newest detector and source technology.
The D8 QUEST ECO X-ray chemical crystallography system features the new PHOTON 50™ CMOS detector which is two times larger than traditional CCD cameras. It is capable of high speed data collection in shutter-less operation mode ensuring excellent quality of data and unprecedented data acquisition speed. The D8 QUEST ECO has sophisticated new automation of the entire experiment from data collection through structure refinement and report generation. The D8 QUEST ECO can also be upgraded with a number of other high performance source and detector options, including the IµS™ microfocus source and the even larger PHOTON 100™ CMOS detector.
The new ECO line is a significant extension of the Bruker AXS division’s product portfolio with X-ray solutions featuring a reduced ecological footprint. The innovations incorporated into the ECO series is the result of Bruker’s commitment to deliver high performance solutions with lower cost of ownership.
