New Method for On-line Measurement of Cobalt, Bromine & Manganese in Terephthalic Acid

Published by Applied Rigaku Technologies, Inc.

NEX_OLAustin, TX, USA  —   Applied Rigaku Technologies, Inc. has announced a new method for on-line measurement of cobalt (Co), bromine (Br) and manganese (Mn) in terephthalic acid (TPA) and purified terephthalic acid (PTA), demonstrating the use of a process energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) analyzer.

Rigaku EDXRF Application Note #1539 describes the analysis of concentrations of Co, Br and Mn in TPA and PTA solutions and highlights the performance of the Rigaku NEX OL on-line EDXRF process analyzer. Continue reading

These X-ray cameras feature a 4.0-megapixel sCMOS (scientific CMOS) sensor coupled to a gadolinium oxysulfide scintillator, and they deliver high-resolution X-ray images at 30 frames per second (full resolution) through a USB 3.0 interface.

The C12849 series of sCMOS cameras are suitable for high-resolution X-ray imaging, X-ray micro-CT, and other X-ray applications.



  • 4.0-megapixel sCMOS sensor
  • Gadolinium oxysulfide scintillator: 10 μm thick (C12849-101U) or 20 μm thick (C12849-102U)
  • Resolution: 30 lp/mm
  • Frame rate: 30 fps
  • Compact size
  • USB 3.0 interface

Applications: X-ray micro-CT, X-ray imaging, X-ray diffraction, XAFS (X-ray absorption fine structure)
