X-ray analytical techniques are established methods for geological research and elemental analysis of petroleum and petrochemicals. X-ray fluorescence (XRF) is employed to characterize the elemental composition of geological materials, and X-ray diffraction (XRD) is used to quantitatively measure phase composition. Rigaku provides a variety of unique solutions for these determinations and is presenting their latest X-ray analytical technology at booth 1224.

Featured at the event is the sixth generation Rigaku MiniFlex benchtop X-ray diffraction instrument, a multipurpose analytical instrument that can perform qualitative and quantitative analysis of polycrystalline materials. The latest MiniFlex™ X-ray diffractometer is the newest addition to MiniFlex series of benchtop X-ray diffraction analyzers from Rigaku, which began with the introduction of the original MiniFlex system in 1973.
