Bruker Introduces the S1 TITAN™
Product News Jul 09, 2012
At a major recycling industry conference, Bruker has announced the introduction of the new S1 TITAN handheld XRF analyzer at the ISRI 2012 conference (www.isri.org).
The S1 TITAN is among the lightest (1.44 kg including battery) tube-based handheld XRF analyzers on the market.
The innovative S1 TITAN features an integrated touch-screen color display, an up to 50 kV X-ray tube, Bruker's proprietary, high-speed XFlash® SDD detector with high energy resolution and light-element capabilities, and an ergonomic, yet tough housing that is sealed against humid and dusty environments.
The S1 TITAN is available in three models:
The S1 TITANLE, S1 TITANSE and S1 TITANSP. The S1 TITANLE uses a thin film window for analysis of up to 37 elements, including light elements such as Mg, Al and Si, without the need for a vacuum or helium gas flush.
The S1 TITANSE is perfect for analyzing standard alloys, as well as high temperature samples up to 500ËsC.
The S1 TITANSP is a value analyzer with a traditional SiPIN detector. With its aluminized Kapton® window, the S1 TITANSP is able to measure in-process samples at temperatures up to 500ËsC.
The S1 TITAN's patent pending SharpBeam® technology optimizes the detector and tube geometry.
The optimized geometry has many user benefits, including improved measurement precision, reduced power requirements and increased battery life.
The new S1 TITAN covers a wide range of applications and materials. Whether it's in aerospace or automotive applications, in metals processing or fabrication, in electronics manufacturing, in a refinery, in a power plant, in mining, in recycling and scrap sorting, in consumer products testing or in field environmental analysis, or in the testing laboratory- the S1 TITAN will quickly and accurately identify the elemental composition or identify the alloys of users sample or parts to be tested.
The S1 TITAN is capable of analyzing a vast list of materials, including industrial metals, exotic aerospace alloys, e-scrap, drill core, soil, consumer goods, and more.
In addition, the new S1 TITAN is available configured specifically to analyze precious metals. Given the current price of gold, the interest in trading gold is at a record high.
Handheld XRF is a very quick and easy way to measure the value of the gold jewelry which is being sold or purchased.
John Landefeld, Executive Vice President of the Bruker Elemental Division, commented: "We always have our customers in mind, so we completely redesigned the instrument, in order to remove almost one third of the weight. The result is one of the lightest tube-based handheld XRF analyzers on the market today. In addition, our patent pending SharpBeam® technology provides an optimized measurement geometry, which helps to reduce weight and power consumption. In terms of analytical performance and proprietary algorithms, the S1 TITAN has made even further progress for many important metals, mining and recycling applications and calibrations, and today represents the best available system for fast, easy-to-use, accurate, reliable and automated elemental analysis and positive material identification."
The new S1 TITAN is Bruker's new high-end handheld XRF on the market, and it complements Bruker's line of other handheld XRF analyzers, the S1 TURBO and S1 SORTER.
