Accessories for XRF/EDS

  • EXVC X-Ray Collimator Kit

    The EXVC Collimator Housing can accommodate up to two Tungsten (W) collimator disks that are placed inside a bayonet holder in front of the detector. By selecting the appropriate Tungsten collimator disks, the user can reduce the incoming X-ray flux and allow the detector and electronics to process the X-ray spectrum. Seven different Tungsten collimator disks are provided with different size holes in order to allow for a wide range of applications.

  • eMLC-1 External Collimator for Amptek SDD Detectors

    Amptek’s eMLC-1 External Collimator is an accessory which can be used to reduce the flux of X-rays entering Amptek’s SDD and Fast SDD® detectors from wide angles, improving background and reducing spectral interferences. The optimum external collimator depends strongly on the geometry of a particular instrument; many customers will design their own collimator for their application. This is a general purpose tool which helps in many applications and is a basis for customization.
