Epsilon 1 range

Small and powerful

The Epsilon 1 is a fully integrated energy dispersive XRF analyzer consisting of a spectrometer, built-in computer, touch screen and analysis software. Powered by the latest advances in excitation and detection technology the Epsilon 1 is a star performer in the low-cost benchtop instrument class.

Epsilon 1 produces fast, cost-effective, precise and accurate data with minimal operator dependence and sample preparation. The total running cost is therefore much lower than other analytical techniques such as AAS, ICP and wet chemical methods that are costly and also require a dedicated skilled operator.

Epsilon 1 is built for the characterization and analysis of any type of sample in many industry segments such as cement, cosmetics, environmental, food, forensics, metals and coatings, mining and minerals, nanomaterials, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals and polymers.

A number of out-of-the-box solutions are available for specific analytical needs. Those industry versions are pre-calibrated in the factory and ready to use:
• Sulfur in fuels in compliance with ASTM D4294 and ISO 20847
• Additives in lubricating oils in compliance with ASTM D6481
• Catalyst residues in pharmaceuticals
• Milk powder
• Mining
• Research and education

Non-destructive analysis

The measurements are carried out directly on the sample itself with little to no sample preparation. Since XRF is a non-destructive technique, the sample can also be measured subsequently by other analytical techniques, if required.

PANalytical's Epsilon 1 benchtop XRF spectrometer

Maximum sensitivity

The thin window Ag anode X-ray tube, designed and manufactured by PANalytical, ensures high quality and sensitivity. The 50 kV X-ray tube and generator is ideal for exciting heavier elements, resulting in faster analysis times and higher accuracy.

Atmospheric variations

Low-energy X-ray photons characteristic of sodium, magnesium, aluminum, silicon, phosphorus and sulfur are sensitive to air-pressure and temperature variations. Built-in temperature and air-pressure sensors compensate for these atmospheric variations, ensuring excellent results whatever the weather.

Spillage protection

In order to shield the delicate heart of the system from spillage, a protection foil is in place. In case of spillage, the foil can be replaced easily by the operator.
