As implied by the name, an XRF coating thickness tester produces X-rays. These rays make the inner layers shoot the atom with an electron. The action is known as ionisation. The atom replaces the missing electron from the inner layer of coating with the outer electron that is now revolving around the nucleus.
This replacement produces what is known as fluorescence radiation. This radiation is detected by coating thickness measurement equipment, which uses it to create a spectrum.
As the user sets the major component of this coating, the spectrum is displayed on the screen, allowing them to determine the coating’s thickness. The single-component coatings are successfully measured by the X-ray thickness tester without regard to the shape or state of the tested object.
The ability to measure the thickness of extremely thin metallic coatings as well as study the composition of materials makes X-ray fluorescence a particularly useful instrument. In the former, a high-energy electron beam is focused on a target, often tungsten, and produces a wide range of X-rays.
Before irradiating the test material, the X-ray beam is constrained to a narrow beam by passing through a collimator. As an element is exposed to radiation, circling electrons in its nucleus hop between its various energy levels, or shells, to produce distinctive secondary radiation.
In order to learn more about the substance being examined, this secondary radiation, also known as X-ray fluorescence, is analysed.
The Global X-ray Fluorescence Coating Thickness Gauge Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
X-ray fluorescence technology is used by Bowman XRF equipment to precisely measure the thickness and make-up of plating deposits. By subjecting a precisely specified region of the test specimen to x-ray energy, measurement is carried out.
A high precision energy-dispersive detector is used to detect the X-ray emission (fluorescence) that is produced as a result from both the coating and the substrate.
Three factors in relation to detectors are energy resolution, detection effectiveness, and robustness. The capacity to distinguish between two photons with a slight energy difference is known as energy resolution. The efficiency of x-ray documentation is referred to as detection efficiency. Silicon Drift Detectors, a cutting-edge solid state detector technology, are used in all Bowman XRF systems.
