Three Key Benefits of X-Supreme8000

Oxford Instruments X-Supreme8000 has been a work-horse x-ray fluorescence analyzer in process control applications for years.  The systems overall design and reliability make it a strong option for various testing goals relating to petrochemical, mining, paper, mineral, chemicals, etc.  In fact, the system has been received with such great feedback from users and provides historically worry free operation that very little has been changed over the years.

In this blog article, Eastern Applied Research highlights three key benefits of the X-Supreme8000.  There are, however, many more – so contact us to discuss your process control needs and how the bulk analyzer may help meet them.

Ease of Operation
One of the universal benefits of Oxford Instruments x-ray fluorescence analyzers is their ease of use.  The XSupreme8000 is no different, with intuitive software that results in a short learning curve for operators to process sample materials with minimal questions after training.  When questions do arise, the XSupreme8000 includes a unique ‘bubble help’ function on many operational screens.  By simply touching a question mark, ‘bubbles’ with operational summaries will guide production staff that may not recall a step and detailed help is available through many of those ‘bubbles’.

Designed for Rugged Environments
Since the XSupreme8000 is used in a variety of environments and with samples that could potentially spill and create issues (oils, powders, pastes) the system was designed with a dust and solvent proof keypad.  If any spills occur, the system will be safe.  Additionally, the two-layer sample cup approach provides an extra layer of protection from the elements and the unique ‘wind tunnel design’ ensures minimal/no dust ingress into the main spectrometer.  All of this adds up to a protected system that should offer years of worry free operation.

Efficient Sample Handling
The XSupreme8000 features a turret stage that can hold up to ten samples at a time and will maximize an operators efficiency because they will simply set the measurement parameters, start the process and then handle other tasks during analysis.  More importantly, since homogeneity of samples will affect measurement results, the system has also been designed with a ‘sample spinner’ that spins the individual sample during measurement and provides optimum analysis of the entire sample instead of just a fraction of the material.

Again, depending on your exact testing goals, the X-Supreme8000 will offer a number of additional benefits.  Reach out to one of our Application Specialists to discuss your elemental analysis interests and how the X-Supreme8000 can benefit your operations.
