Bruker S1 TITAN Handheld XRF Analyser

The Bruker S1 TITAN Handheld XRF Mining Analyser is a fast, accurate and easy to use tool for all aspects of mining.


  • Elemental range: up to 45 elements, including Mg, Al, Si, P and S
  • Multiple specific matrix calibrations based on traceable standards
  • No need for gain check in the field due to Bruker's Continuous Automatic Gain Calibration (CAGC)

Available calibrations:

  • GeoChem
  •  Limestone
  • Soil

The colour touch-screen LCD is easily seen in all lighting conditions. Weighing in at just 1.5kg (3.3 lbs), the S1 TITAN is among the lightest tube-based XRF analysers on the market

Key equipment facts

Chamber sizes range from 120 litres to 2600 litres in capacity and features a low loading threshold and an easily opened canopy that incorporates a large viewing window. Standard or Premium configurations can be specified, as can an extensive range of optional accessories to match each installation to precise application requirements.

"User experience has been a key driver behind many features of the new units, such as a full colour touch screen, which allows pre-programmed sequences to be set," says Ascott’s MD, Chris Gates. "A choice of supports and mounting systems for product location are also available as are refrigeration units, SO2 gas dosing systems, automatic salt dosing and software options for data logging."
An increasingly important element in manufacturing and corrosion testing impacts directly on performance, durability and product appearance. The new chambers, says Ascott Analytical, will help users maximise this key stage in product development and production.


MTS Fracture Mechanics Solutions


Test engineers worldwide rely on MTS test solutions to meet a full range of fracture toughness and fatigue crack growth requirements. Meeting these requirements requires precision dynamic performance to establish uniform crack growth, as well as the ability to perform a controlled ramp to failure for a wide range of materials and specimen geometries. MTS addresses these needs with a complete fracture mechanics offering, comprising the following high-performance MTS technologies.

MTS Servohydraulic Test Systems
Versatile MTS standard and high-force test systems combine the dynamic performance needed for rapid, high frequency pre-cracking of specimens along with the high axial stiffness required to accurately determine toughness.

Versatile FlexTest ® Digital Controllers
FlexTest digital controllers deliver the tight system control critical for meaningful fracture mechanics testing. They feature higher speeds and channel densities to keep pace with evolving test demands, and share common hardware boards and user interface tools, simplifying test standardization and optimization.
