Liquid sample cups and foils
From oils and fuels to water or concentrated acid solutions, PANalytical offers a safe and practical way of analyzing liquid samples by XRF.
Most liquids can be analyzed without further treatment simply using a specially developed plastic cup, which has a protective plastic foil that functions as a X-ray transparent window.
Liquid sample cups
PANalytical offers dedicated (disposable) sample cups in 32 or 40 mm diameter and a variety of foils for direct loading of the sample into the spectrometer. The choice of the optimal foil suited for a certain application is fundamental to guarantee the integrity of the cup and the lowest interferences due to radiation absorbtion and presence of contaminants.
PANalytical provides also a wide choice of foils composed of different polymers and with different thickness. These include polypropylene, Mylar® and Kapton®, for example. Chemical compatibility charts of polymers and absorption curves can guide the process of chosing the best for each application.
