BTX™ III Benchtop XRD Analyzer
The BTX III X-ray diffraction (XRD) analyzer provides fast, reliable quantitative mineralogy of major and minor components in a compact, benchtop design.
The BTX III analyzer features a unique small sample holder to provide a lightweight and virtually maintenance-free alternative to conventional XRD. This standalone instrument runs without the need for compressed gas, water cooling, a secondary chiller, or external transformer, keeping the cost of ownership low. Operators can directly connect the XRD instrument to any device using Ethernet or wireless capability.
Our XRD tools are powered by intuitive SwiftMin® software to streamline your workflow with a single dashboard, preset calibrations, easy data export, and automatic data transfer.
Increased Speed and Sensitivity Power Swift Decisions
Powerful, intuitive software is paired with improved X-ray detectors for enhanced sensitivity, faster analysis times, and more reliable results.
- Updated X-ray detector hardware runs faster and offers more intensity, leading to lower LODs.
- SwiftMin® automated phase ID and quantitative software provides real-time data directly on the XRD analyzer, so you can make decisions quickly and with confidence.
Sample Prep Made Easy
Using conventional X-ray diffraction instruments, a large batch of sample must be finely ground and pressed into a pellet to ensure a sufficiently random orientation of the crystals.
In contrast, the small vibrating sample holder utilized in the BTX III convects all particles within the sample chamber, ensuring data is virtually free of orientation effects. As a result, the instrument requires a mere 15 mg of sample, easily obtained using the supplied sample kit.
