"Software is a blend of new and old which can be confusing but it works well on the whole. Hardware is very reliable and help is always only a phone call away. Standard of the service has dropped post Malvern acquisition."

Our process cannot exist without information supplied by the Zetium.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Determine chemical composition of bauxite, mud and alumina

"Excellent value to our process since it delivers a large suite of elemental analyses in a short run time. The throughput for analyzing a large number of samples is excellent, the instrument is stable, and delivers high level accuracy and repeatability. The characterization of raw material, waste and product quality is very important to process efficiency and productivity and the Zetium delivers in this regard."

Very reliable and consistent if method is set up correctly.
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area:Elemental analysis in various metallic samples

"The Zetium is a workhorse in our lab. It is consistent and reliable for numerous elements regardless of the sample matrix. The biggest issue we had was setting up methods that were representative and adapted to accurately analyze our samples. With training provided by Malvern Panalytical, this was easily accomplished. Their support is excellent, however they are busy and may delay PM visits. From a user’s perspective, the daily analysis and basic use of this instrument is very user friendly. Use becomes slightly more difficult in method development where support and training are highly recommended. Very little has gone wrong with this instrument. In the rare occurrence of mishaps, service has always been excellent in making any necessary repairs. Overall, the Zetium is top of the line in the XRF market with its reliability over time and ability to be customized to its user’s applications."

In spite of everything; the results are great and I am satisfied!
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area:Research and commercial Laboratory

"The product is ok but the combination of ED-XRF needs to have more applications for the custumer. The new application done in Almelo concerning ED-and SSM must be transported to the custumers. SuperQ6.2b still has bugs that need to be fixed. The interface of the system and applications should be consolidated onto only one interface!"

The assurance of excellent service - stable XRF - super software makes Zetium No. 1
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Analysis of non-ferro alloys, powders and raw materials

"The Zetium is the fifth XRF in 40 years in our company. 2 times a Siemens was bought and 3 times a Panalytical. The Zetium, which has been in service for six months, is doing an excellent job. Fast, accurate, stable and very accessible. The development of the new measurement programs was much faster than with the Axios. Factor 2. The Zetium software is much more efficient than the older software on our Axios system. High-performance and splendid software. Changing and searching for calibrations or measurements is very accessible. Last but not least, the service of Panalytical is great as always and certainly for this reason we have again opted for a Panalytical system."

A nice instrument, small footprint, easy to use software, great after the sale support and training!!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:X-RAY ANALYSIS

"This x-ray instrument is very easy to use. It has simplified software that is end user friendly. When we purchased it, we also received several days worth of training for all of our team members in the lab to familiarize everyone with the new software. It has the ability to enlarge the onscreen look also. The footprint of the instrument is smaller than our previous version which allows more room in the area for other needed items. Our standard deviation is so much better now on our daily standards with this new instrument as it is extremely stable. We also like the emergency stop button on the front of the instrument because it is prominent and right there if you were to need to shut it down."
