Rigaku’s new application report demonstrates the capabilities of the Rigaku ZSX Primus II.

Rigaku Corporation has published a new application report demonstrating the capabilities of the Rigaku ZSX Primus II wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) spectrometer.

Application Note XRF 5028 describes the analysis of beryllium (Be) in beryllium copper alloy and includes complete information about sample preparation, method calibration and repeatability.

Beryllium copper alloy has strength close to that of steel, and is the strongest among copper alloys.

It has many uses, including the manufacture of springs, electric connectors, tools for use in environments with explosive vapors and gases, and musical instruments.

Since characteristics and uses of beryllium copper alloys depend on the beryllium concentration, it is important to accurately determine the levels of beryllium in beryllium copper.

Because of the long wavelength of Be-Kα, beryllium analysis requires high-power WDXRF spectrometers equipped with analyzing crystals with high reflectivity for Be-Kα.

The RX75 multilayer analyzer is a special synthetic analyzing crystal that enables the analytical performance.

In the described method, certified reference materials of beryllium copper alloy provided by CTIF (France) were used for calibration.

Measurements were performed on the ZSX Primus II with a 4 kW X-ray tube operating at 30 kV and 100 mA using the RX75 multilayer analyzer.

The ZSX Primus II features an innovative optics-above configuration designed to eliminate beam path contamination, thereby increasing up time.

The calibration accuracy obtained in the report shows performance and repeatability precise enough for daily analysis use.
