TEXAS

Total Elemental X-ray Analysis System

TEXAS on conveyor belt
 
TEXAS is an online X-ray fluorescence device for the elemental analysis of bulk materials without sampling. It can be mounted above main conveyor belts or at other feeding devices and analyzes continuously the elemental composition (Z>12) of the material.

The device is used as a tool for process control. It offers immediate information (24/7) about the process without time consuming sampling and analysis in the laboratory. However, it does not replace the laboratory but serves as a process tool for feed forward or feed back control.
 
The device is equipped with a rugged X-ray tube and a energy dispersive detector in a stainless steel box. The information acquired with the sensor is processed with the software suite MONACO by an industrial PC which can be linked to the control system by standard interfaces.
