Bowman XRF Series overview

Comprehensive range of coating Thickness Gauges – read the overview here

Bowman XRF – B Series

The B Series is the entry level coating thickness gauge using a top-down measurement configuration that Bowman offers.

Bowman XRF – G Series

The G Series is the latest and most compact range of XRF analyser from Bowman

Bowman XRF – L Series

The L Series is the most flexible instrument that Bowman offers in terms of sample size. It offers the same testing performance as the P Series with a larger sample chamber and greater X-Y stage travel. For samples larger than ~12 inches in any direction, the L Series is the perfect solution. The large sample stage and travel allows for both large parts, or large sample fixtures holding multiple parts, to be measured.

Bowman XRF – M Series

The M Series is the ultimate in high performance plating testing allowing for the smallest x-ray spot sizes to be used for the smallest of testing points. The poly-capillary optics in the M Series is superior to the one fitted on the O Series, focusing the x-ray beam down to 15μm FWHM.

Bowman XRF – O Series

The O Series is the first model in the high performance range from Bowman combining high performance with a small x-ray spot size. The O-series introduce poly-capillary optics system rather then usina collimator assemble. The optics focus the x-rays coming from the tube exit window to a very small spot size (80μm FWHM) while retaining virtually 100% of the tube flux.

Bowman XRF – P Series

The P series XRF is a flexible analyser capable of measuring a wide variety of sample sizes, shapes, and quantities. It includes high precision programmable X-Y stage . Operators can use the mouse and software interface to move to desired measurement locations easily. Multi-point programs can be created to automatically measure multiple sample locations with the click of a button.
