New spectrometer from Bruker ensures process and grade control

The Bruker S8 TIGER Series 2 is ideal for process and grade control in base metal mining and for industrial minerals.

Accuracy and precision are vital for grade control and process optimisation in mining operations. Close control levels and tight sample grids in elemental analysis are the success factors for better quality and cost efficiency.

The Bruker S8 TIGER Series 2 WDXRF spectrometer is the ideal analytical tool for these tasks thanks to HighSense technology, which delivers the optimal sensitivity for all elements from beryllium (Be) to americium (Am).

The HighSense technology includes new XS-Series analyser crystals, the HighSense counting electronics, and the HighSense X-ray tubes. This enables the S8 TIGER Series 2 to deliver the fastest time-to-result, lowest detection limits, and best analytical precision.

In shift operation at a mine site laboratory, ergonomic and failsafe usability is vital for ensuring operational efficiency and the best analytical data. Ease-of-use operation is guaranteed with the multilingual Bruker TouchControl interface on the S8 TIGER Series 2, while the EasyLoad magazines allow easy handling of all sample types.

Moreover, optimal instrument uptime and low running cost are guaranteed by SampleCare technology which protects the S8 TIGER Series 2 components.

With the factory calibrations, called GEO-QUANT, the start-up of the S8 TIGER in daily routine for best results is very simple. GEO-QUANT Basic enables fast grade control for all mineral materials, while GEO-QUANT Advanced extends the element range.

GEO-QUANT T is the ready-to analyse solution for accurate and precise trace analysis in geology, minerals and mining, while the GEO-QUANT Iron ore calibration enables the S8 TIGER to analyse all iron ores according to ISO 9516 standards.

The Bruker German-manufactured S8 TIGER Series 2 spectrometer guarantees best data quality for mining operations based on the latest X-ray fluorescence technology.

This all makes the Bruker S8 TIGER Series 2 the perfect choice for process and grade control applications in mine site laboratories.
