X-ray fluorescence analysis (XRF) Overview Metals

System: BRUKER S8 Tiger (Lab) + BRUKER S1 Titan LE (handheld)

Qualitative and quantitative energy-dispersive and wavelength-dispersive X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyses of metallic and non-metallic materials to determine chemical composition (sodium to uranium in the periodic table of elements).

Useful tips:

Suitable samples: Solids (bulk); powders, liquids on request
Sample specifications:
  • Solids / specimen diameter 10 - 45 mm; height max. 30 mm.
  • Small samples / must be pressed to a minimum diameter of 10 mm
  • Powder samples / minimum quantity 10 g
  • Liquids / minimum quantity 20 ml (on request)
  • Materials: metals, ceramics, minerals (organic materials also possible)
  • Quantitative analyses: low-alloy and high-alloy steels, brass, pure titanium, TiAlV and TiAlNb alloys, other calibration programs possible as required


  • Elemental composition of various solids
  • Impurities
