Technological innovation for wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) spectrometry

The superior analytical performance of the S8 TIGER results from the innovative optimized X-ray optics. While the new high-intensity X-ray tube excites the sample even more efficiently, novel analyzer crystals for different elements and specific applications improve detection limits, precision and resolution. The high analytical performance and innovative ease of use of the S8 TIGER come in a very compact, attractive design.

S8 TIGER((( – the new high-end wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) spectrometer

The S8 TIGER spectrometer is the innovative high-end addition to our XRF product family for elemental analysis in various industrial applications, including oil, lubricants, refinery, cement and mining.

Unique features of the S8 TIGER include TouchControl™and SampleCare™, combining extreme ease of use and robust reliability with superior analytical performance. TouchControl is essential for easy and fail-safe operation. By using an integrated touch screen and dedicated user interface, TouchControl defines a new standard in ease of use for a high-end XRF system. The required training for occasional and inexperienced users is absolutely minimized. The unique SampleCare feature automatically recognizes samples and the integrated contamination shields protect the S8 TIGER against all kinds of contamination, ensuring maximum uptime and availability.

S8 TIGER((( – Superior analytical performance for elemental analysis

The S8 TIGER analyses all elements from Beryllium to Uranium in a wide variety of sample types. SPECTRAplus with the standardless analysis package QUANT-EXPRESS allows ultra-fast analysis of totally unknown samples.

The S8 TIGER is designed for demanding applications in industrial process and quality control, and as a powerful elemental analysis tool in research and development labs.


Can anyone obtain high quality results without the need for extensive training or special skills? Yes, thanks to TouchControl™!

This is because with TouchControl we have consistently favored easy, intuitive operation. The times of never-ending explanations, manuals that weigh a ton and operation with adventures in body positioning belong to the past. With TouchControl, any user can perform measurements jobs on the S8 Tiger.

Using the touchscreen this is done as follows: First, select the application and key in the sample ID. You can also add additional information, like preparation or sample weight. Then simply start the measurement and view the results on the monitor. But it can be even easier: An operator places a sample in the loader and taps the touchscreen once; this starts a predefined automatic application – and that’s it.

With the touch of a few buttons the S8 TIGER makes your working life simple and easy.


  • Easiest operation due to intuitive touchscreen interface: Three steps to accurate results!
  • No operator training required
  • Standalone operation in tough environments (no PC, mouse or keyboard)
  • Unmatched data integrity: Routine analysis is separated from advanced tasks like calibration, evaluation, and extended reporting
  • Online language switch with free selection: English, German, French, Chinese, Russian, Spanish, Korean, Turkish, Portuguese, Italian,…
  • Tailored for industrial environments, ”round-the-clock“ operation


Easy, safe and reliable

Vacuum seal

Thanks to SampleCareTM you can rely on the S8 TIGER 100%. SampleCare constantly protects all important system components from contamination, which might lead to incorrect results or in the worst case to system stoppage. Our S8 Tiger with SampleCare prevents this safely in 4 ways:

The DuraBeryllium tube shield protects the head of the X-ray tube; the mask changer and the vacuum seal protect the goniometer chamber. If, by chance anything should have gone wrong during preparation, and the sample breaks or leaks out, it is not a problem. System components are well protected, easy to access and can be cleaned with little effort.


  • Low maintenance and high instrument uptime due to unique protection during loading and unloading:
    • Two integrated contamination shields for tube and goniometer protection
    • Dust reservoir
  • Unique protection during measurements
    • DuraBeryllium™ shield for tube window protection
    • Unique vacuum seal with high transmission window for goniometer protection
