The AXRD Benchtop is easy to use and provides accurate and reliable measurement results with comparable speed to full size laboratory units. Equipped with our powerful Hybrid Pixel Detector, the AXRD Benchtop has extremely fast data collection capabilities. Collect low-resolution scans in 3 minutes. Collect high resolution scans in 15 to 30 minutes.  Incredible low angle performance, with excellent peaks as low as 1º.

 

With 600 Watts of x-ray power, an achievable FWHM peak resolution of < 0.05º 2θ and an angular accuracy of < ± 0.02º Δ2θ over the full angular range, the AXRD Benchtop, provides a low cost alternative for powder diffraction, all while maintaining  the necessary performance for even the most demanding x-ray diffraction material investigation.

Whether you are doing Phase Identification, Quantitative Analysis or Structure Analysis the AXRD Benchtop will bring you years of  convenience and value in a compact, easy to maintain system.

ACCURATE

Our all-in-one software for both data collection and analysis of powder patterns is the perfect solution for basic qualitative and quantitative analysis. Some of XRDWIN’s unique features include: instrument warm-up and control, data collection, k-alpha 1 and k-alpha 2 separation, data smoothing, integrated intensity, background fitting, peak search, peak fitting, intensity ratio method for quantitative analysis, spike method for quantitative analysis, crystallite size and strain. Also available is the ICDD database search match and an MDI Jade interface. We offer unlimited software support.

 

EASY & CONVENIENT TO USE

Our AXRD Benchtop has features that make it easy and convenient to use. An inclined x-ray tube prevents powders from spilling. Integrated water cooling includes  tank, pump and heat exchanger that are all integrated into the AXRD, making it the only 600-watt system on the market without an external chiller. All units have safety warning lights (X-ray on, shutter open, status lights) for user safety. There are  flexible options for divergence, anti-scatter, Soller and receiving slits, to optimize speed or intensity.  There are multiple sample holders available to better fit the needs of your project including 25 mm round (shallow and deep cavities), Si zero background plates, Si zero background plates with cavities and air-sensitive sample holders.

ACCESSORIES

The AXRD has a variety of accessories available. The diffracted beam graphite monochromator is used with our scintillation detector to reduce unwanted fluorescence from samples containing Fe and Co. Another option is the rotating sample stage with a variable speed sample spinner for improving particle statistics of samples with preferred orientation. Our automated six position sample changer enables unattended operation of the AXRD. Each position has a built-in rotating stage. There is a portable workstation for customer's that require mobility. The work station has storage for accessories, keyboard, mouse, monitor mount and wheels for ease of mobility.
