    High Sensitivity X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometer(HS XRF®

    Core technologies
    (1)Hardware core technology: Monochromatic focused excitation technology


       The fully-focused hyperbolic bending crystal monochromatises the X-ray tube emission spectrum at a specific wavelength and focuses the diffraction to the sample point, so that the X-rays emitted from the sample have no continuous scattering background except for the fluorescent X-rays produced by the excitation of the elements in the sample and the scattered rays from the monochromatised incident spectrum, thus ensuring that the characteristic lines of the elements to be measured have very low background interference.


    (2)Software core technology: Fast fundamental parameter method

       XRF methods are challenged by matrix effects, inter-elemental absorption-enhancement effects and the lack of standard samples, which pose a challenge for the quantitative analysis of different sample types.

     The fundamental parametric method is at the forefront of current research in the field of X-ray fluorescence. The rapid fundamental parametric method calculates all aspects of X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy from generation to detection, and establishes mathematical models for physical phenomena that are well defined in physics. The basic parametric method is used to reduce analytical errors and to obtain more accurate elemental quantification results through the correction of small amounts of standards (or fixed value samples).

    High sensitivity X-ray fluorescence spectrometer PHECDA coupled with rapid fundamental method provides industry solution

  • The combination of high-sensitivity X-ray fluorescence spectrometry for trace detection of heavy metals and Fast FP for accurate quantification of elements brings new prospects for the application of XRF for elemental detection.
    (1)Monochromatic aggregation excitation technology
    The high sensitivity X-ray fluorescence spectrometer uses a hyperbolic bent crystal monochromator to optimise the excitation efficiency of the elements and reduce the continuous scattering background of the X-ray tube, improving the signal-to-noise ratio of the fluorescence rays of the elements.
    (2)Use of high performance SDD detectors
    The performance of the Silicon Drift Detector (SDD), the core component of an energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometer, depends on the crystal area, window material, count rate, resolution etc. The PHECDA series uses today's high performance SDD detectors to ensure performance in elemental analysis.
    (3)Fast FP algorithm   
     The difficulty with XRF analysis is that the elemental fluorescence intensity is not only related to the elemental content of the sample, but also to the content of other elements, which is known as the matrix absorption-enhancement effect, and this physical effect makes the selection of a suitable standard sample difficult, if the selection of the standard sample matrix is inconsistent, can not cover the range of elemental content of the sample to be measured, it will bring errors to the actual sample analysis.
    The fundamental parameters method eliminates background differences due to matrix differences between sample types, reduces analytical errors and provides more accurate elemental quantification results with the correction of a few standards.
    (4)Optimizing the detection capacity of Cadmium
    Cadmium is a toxic heavy metal of great concern in the fields of environmental protection and food safety. The excitation and detection of cadmium (Kα: 23.1 KeV) by conventional XRF is challenging, and the detection limit of cadmium by high-sensitivity X-ray fluorescence spectrometry reaches the level of 0.06 mg/kg through monochromatic focused excitation of cadmium.
    (5)High throughput
        PHECDA-HES is equipped with more than 30 automatic sampling cells;No gas, vacuum or other auxiliary equipment required.
