Epsilon 1 for automotive catalysts recycling

Looking for an easy but accurate solution?

Want to get better accuracy and precision from your handheld XRF spectrometer, while keeping your workflow as simple as possible? Our Epsilon 1 ED-XRF spectrometer is here for you.

Epsilon 1 produces precise, accurate data – quickly, cost-effectively, and with minimal operator involvement or sample preparation. It’s set up for Pd, Pt, and Rh analysis directly from the factory, so you can get started straight away. And the spectrometer is designed for ultra-safe operations and reproducible sample positioning. Plus, with its compact, robust design, all you need is a regular main connection!

This easy operation makes Epsilon 1 the ideal choice for high-quality, on-site XRF analysis.

High level of trust

Guaranteed maximum safety

All Malvern Panalytical X-ray solutions are designed according to the strict regulations of regulatory bodies. The Epsilon 1 tabletop system shields its users against X-rays during analysis. 

You’ll have peace of mind in the lab thanks to a unique internal interlocked enclosure providing complete radiation protection, deserving its Vollshutz classification. No need to worry about safety as the system is fully enclosed and completely safe.

Guaranteed maximum safety

Be Flexible

Sometimes, it’s just not possible or worthwhile to calibrate all your sample types. Perhaps there are no standards, or those that are available are too expensive. But you can still use a generic method to analyze the elemental composition of a single sample. Even better – this method is available on our Epsilon 1 XRF benchtops.

How does this work? By using our standardless Omnian software! Combining twenty generic samples with the power of physics, Omnian can quantify elemental composition for a wide variety of sample types – including polymers and liquids.
