Highly accurate with an impressive software and design for elemental analysis.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Elemental analysis of research samples

"I think this instrument is reliable and highly accurate for the detection of a wide range of elements in a variety of samples. Its impressive design and software help the researchers to interpret the results in a short period of time, which in turn saves the time which is required to determine the elements in any sample by other techniques like UV Visible Spectrophotometer or AAS. This technique doesn't involve any sample preparation step like digestion by acids which may lead to errors in the analysis. I highly recommend this equipment to other researchers."

Simple, produces reliable results, and eliminates traditionally used accessories.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Analysis of nickel ore.

"The Epsilon 4 unit and program is simple and easy to use. It consistently delivers results according to set standards and the results are reproducible across different analysis methods (SAP, LIM, etc). Fewer accessories and materials involved (completely eliminates the use of vacuum pump and vacuum pump oil; prolene film is used on only one component and is changed less frequently). And one of the main reasons we decided to acquire this unit is because IT CAN BE TURNED OFF, therefore eliminating operating costs when the machine is not in use during the off-season. Support is accessible across various available media (text, call, e-mail, chat) and personnel is prompt and efficient in dealing with questions and/or clarifications. The initial cost is justifiable for the quality of the product. It’s compact (not oddly shaped!), easy to use and maintain, and delivers reliable results."

Great instrument; could come with better instructions and post sales support.
Rating: 3.3

  • Application Area:Quantitative analysis of surface and bulk metals

"We have used an Epsilon 3 for the purpose of quantifying surface metal concentration for a number of years. It is reliable and provides us with reproducible and accurate readings of metal concentration down as light as sodium. It also has a standardless bulk analysis routine (Omnian) that is useful for identifying and quantifying unknown materials. Based on the performance of the Epsilon 3 for R&D purposes, our company purchased an Epsilon 1 (replacing an old Portaspec XRF) for passivation measurement and galvalume pot analysis on one of our galvanizing lines. Once a routine is set up, it is relatively easy to use. However, the instructions that come with the XRF aren't very comprehensive. Getting help after the initial training session (which is better appreciated with a prior working knowledge of the instrument) isn't as simple as e-mailing an expert. I certainly would appreciate instructions/on-line courses specific to my needs."

Manufacturer's Response

Thank you for your review of the Epsilon 3 and Epsilon 1 instruments. I’m happy to read that both instruments deliver reliable and accurate readings for your metal applications. For some of the applications, the set-up can be difficult, and MalverPanalytical is always happy to provide expertise in setting up the applications for you. The online tutorial is a nice idea to consider.

Instrument with good performance for research and routine analysis.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Elemental analysis

"Although the instrument can be used in a wide range of applications, we essentially use it for elemental analysis in filtered aerosl samples under thin sample conditions. For its proper use it is necessary to have a good knowledge of the physical processes of the analytical technique. Therefore, after some initial study, optimal performance can be obtained for the analysis of interest. Furthermore, the instrument is very stable and its performances remain constant for long periods so as to be suitable for routine use as well; Automatic performance checks are adequate to limit operator intervention after initial calibration."

  • Application Area:Metal analysis

"Easy to use, but after sales service could be better. Some parts prices are a bit too high."

Review date: 27 Mar 2020 | Epsilon 4 range

Built on the experience and success of the proven Epsilon 3 range of XRF spectrometers, the Epsilon 4 is a multi-functional instrument for any industry segment needing elemental analysis from fluorine (F) to americium (Am) in areas from R&D through to process control. Combining the latest excitation and detection technologies with mature software and smart design, the analytical performance of Epsilon 4 approaches that of more powerful and floor-standing XRF spectrometers.

Due to its low infrastructural requirements, Epsilon 4 can be placed next to the production line anywhere in your process. Its high performance enables most applications to be operated at ambient conditions, reducing costs for helium or vacuum maintenance.

The Epsilon 4 handles a wide variety of sample types, including solids, pressed and loose powders, liquids and filters. It performs non-destructive quantitative analysis of elements from carbon (C) fluorine to americium (Am), in concentrations from 100% down to sub-ppm levels, on samples weighing anything from a few milligrams to kilograms.

The Epsilon 4 is a robust and reliable alternative to conventional systems for a wide variety of industries and applications, even when light element analysis is of outmost importance, including: cement production, mining, mineral beneficiation, iron, steel and non-ferrous metals, RoHS screening and quantification, petroleum and petrochemicals, polymers and related industries, glass production, forensics, 
pharmaceuticals, healthcare products, environmental, food and cosmetics.
