Real-time online multi-element analysis with XRF has a new name – S2 KODIAK
The S2 KODIAK analyses element concentration, layer thickness, and area density of single- and multi-layer coatings on metallic, non-metallic, and polymeric substrates simultaneously, online, and in real-time. The S2 KODIAK transfers the results to the plant control software so that you stay in control of your process all the time.
Work safety and operator ergonomics
The S2 KODIAK does not use radioactive targets and hence makes extensive radiation shielding obsolete. This not only makes daily work routines easier, but also simplifies integration in existing plants and facilitates approval processes with authorities. The S2 KODIAK is remote-controlled, no operator on the device required.
On duty, 24/7
Due to its encapsulated, rugged design with stainless steel casing (enclosure protection class up to IP69k), operating temperatures from -25 up to 60° C, an integrated UPS, empty belt detection, automatic self-alignment, pass/fail function and sample distance compensation, the S2 KODIAK ensures autonomous operation 24/7 with uptimes of 98% or higher.
S2 KODIAK – the perfect fit for base metal mining
Real-time process control in the mine is vital in order to achieve optimal cost efficiency
The S2 KODIAK is perfectly suited for online process control in mining operations. By measuring the exact material composition at any time, the hydro- and pyro-metallurgical processes can be optimized to increase output and enhance concentration efficiency. Real-time control of the blending step ensures a constant concentrate composition in support of later refining steps.
The same time the S2 KODIAK analyzes major and minor elements, it also delivers information about hazardous trace elements, such as As or Hg. Lower-quality material can simply be diluted down or excluded from further processing.
Inline Coating Measurement: The right solution, right away – S2 KODIAK!
Enhance your coating process, improve product quality and achieve significant cost savings – S2 KODIAK!
One of the most challenging processes in industry is the coating of advanced materials: Thin layer systems are used to protect valuable material, making it resistant to environmental impacts whereas multilayer systems are crucial to the functionality of solar cells and some electronic components.
In all of these production processes, the coating speed, precision of layer thickness, and composition of the layer are critical to cost efficiency and yield.
The S2 KODIAK works with base metal ores, such as iron, nickel, copper, chromium, molybdenum, titanium, tungsten and delivers immediate results for all of them.
High-quality results for elemental composition and layer thickness with inline coating measurements – instantly, at any time, with the performance you need – thanks to S2 KODIAK
The S2 KODIAK inline XRF analyzer delivers reliable, ‘real-time’ results for both elemental composition and thickness and is capable of running in a production environment 24/7.
It measures processed material non-destructively – without sample preparation – making the S2 KODIAK the ideal instrument for online process control.
Maintenance-free and with few installation requirements, the S2 KODIAK is easily integrated into industrial processes.
