The instrument is calibrated with Omnian, Malvern Panalytical’s market-leading standardless analysis package, used on our more advanced instruments. As an out-of-the-box solution, Omnian can be used to analyze a wide variety of sample compositions from sodium to americium across the periodic table.

Mining solutions

Epsilon 1 allows screening and accurate quantification by XRF of many types of samples, for example, ores, rocks, carotagedrill cores and blast-hole chips.

Best accuracy

Highly concentrated samples can cause detector saturation resulting in lower accuracy or longer measuring times. Epsilon 1 uses the latest in silicon drift technology to handle these highly concentrated samples without any loss of accuracy or increased measuring times.
Best 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.

Self-contained system

A built-in computer running Microsoft Windows 7 with powerful CPU and 120 GB hard drive ensures flexibility to store and handle thousands of results. The high-resolution, 10.4” LCD touch screen is ideal for easy walk-up operation.
Self-contained system

Maximum sensitivity

The thin window Ag anode X-ray tube, designed and manufactured by PANalytical, ensures high quality and sensitivity. The selection of Ag anode material is ideal for the accurate quantification of P and S that are very common in ores, without interference of possible line overlaps in the XRF spectrum, leading to more reliable results. The 50 kV X-ray tube and generator is ideal for exciting heavier elements, resulting in faster analysis times.
Maximum sensitivity

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.
