Process EDXRF Spectrometer
Featuring advanced third generation EDXRF technology, the Rigaku NEX LS represents the next evolution of scanning multi-element process coatings analyzers for web or coil applications. To deliver superior analytical performance and reliability, the EDXRF measuring head assembly was derived from the established Rigaku NEX Series high-resolution benchtop instrumentation. With this proven technology, the Rigaku NEX LS delivers rapid, non-destructive, multi-element analyses — for coat weight, coating thickness and/or composition — for elements from aluminum (Al) through uranium (U). The measuring head is mounted on a rigid beam and is equipped with a linear traversing mechanism positioned over a roller so that the head-to-surface distance is constant. Common applications include silicone release coaters, converters, denesting Si for vacuum-formed plastics, RoHS compliance, conversion coatings, metalized plastic, top coatings on metal coil and fire retardants on fabric.
