Parts and accessories
KS Analytical Systems carries a full line of spare parts and upgrades for your Siemens (now Bruker) XRD or WDXRF instrumentation. Only our most commonly requested parts are listed here so be sure to contact us if the part you need isn’t listed here.
Energy-Dispersive detectors for XRD applications
XRD manufacturers have been offering ED detectors for years. Most of them being Si(Li) based with the inherent complications and weaknesses common to that hardware. We’re happy to announce that we have developed a solution based on Silicon Drift technology which makes the benefits of ED detection much more accessible for XRD system users.
Zero background sample holders
Users with small sample volumes frequently suffer from diffraction data which is cluttered with scatter and aberrant peaks from their standard holders. By replacing the area of the holder which is exposed to the incident beam with a single crystalline material (Si or quartz), these background effects are practically eliminated. These are ideal for Rietveld analysis as they present minimal complications to the modeling.
Benchtop presses and dies are the easiest way to create flat, uniform samples from your raw material. We are proud to offer new Carver sample pellet presses and dies in addition to used stock. Presses may be purchased as manual units or semi-automatic for applications which require the most consistent results over large volumes of samples.
McCrone Micronizing Ball Mills
McCrone is the gold standard for laboratory sample grinding is has consistently been chosen by our most demanding customers. Unlike common ball mills which rely on random impacts and metallic spheres, these micronizing mills use Forty-eight (48) cylindrical grinding elements (Agate or Corundum are available) to refine particles to submicron sizes. Wet or dry grinding are possible with the standard hardware.
Sample cup masks
These high strength / high purity graphite sample cup masks are a great upgrade for any lab struggling with brittle masks. The high heat forging process dramatically increases resistance to chipping while retaining ultra-high purity standards.
End window WDXRF tubes
KS Analytical Systems can supply new replacement end-window x-ray tubes for your SRS300, SRS303, SRS3000, SRS3400 and MRS instruments. All anode types and window thicknesses are available. Tubes carry full warranty and installation is available.
Procon water pumps / Haskris water chiller parts
We keep many of the most common Procon pumps in stock for your instrument because minimal down-time is as much our goal as it is yours. We also stock a wide range of parts for your Haskris chiller including motors, compressors and thermostats.
High voltage cables
We have new high voltage cables available for all models of Siemens instruments available. Additionally, see our Service and Support section for information on rebuilding of cables for X-ray diffraction (XRD).
Primary beam monochromator
These primary beam monochromators are a must for applications requiring the purest CuKa incident beam.
ES Industries monochromator
Diffracted beam monochromators are more efficient than primary beam monochromators and provide more than enough signal-to-noise ratio improvement for almost every application. These ES Industries models feature a micrometer adjustment knob for aeasy alignment and exceptional intensities. These are compatible with Siemens D500 and Type-F diffractometers.
