Features of the MiniFlex300

Fig. 1 shows the appearance of the MiniFlex300 main unit. The main unit dimensions are 560(W) x 530(D) x 700(H) mm. The water cooling system is integrated into the rear of the unit, so the diffractometer can be setup and used virtually anywhere, as shown in Fig. 2.

The fifth generation MiniFlex is a general purpose X-ray diffractometer that can perform qualitative and quantitative analysis of polycrystalline materials. The MiniFlex is available in two variations. Operating at 600 watts (X-ray tube), the MiniFlex 600 is twice as powerful as other benchtop models, enabling faster analysis and improved overall throughput. Running at 300 watts (X-ray tube), the new MiniFlex 300 does not require an external heat exchanger. Each model is engineered to maximize flexibility in a benchtop package. Read more...
