PANalytical has introduced the Epsilon 5, a new energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) spectrometer for low-level detection of heavy elements. Epsilon 5 detects elements from sodium to uranium in solid, pressed-powder, granule, liquid, thin-film and loose material samples. Measurements can be performed in a vacuum or helium atmosphere. In response to growing environmental concern and stricter legislation, Epsilon 5 is designed to support applications in geology, agriculture, land reclamation, fossil and secondary fuel usage, emissions monitoring, recycling, catalyst production, and electronics and electrical appliance manufacture.
