  • Channels: X-ray Spectrometry

X-ray fluorescence allows the analysis of major and minor oxides present in the raw materials and products found in the cement industry.

The Thermo Scientific ARL OPTIM’X is an entry level WDXRF instrument designed for ease of use with minimal running and maintenance costs. An ARL OPTIM’X XRF spectrometer configured as a sequential-simultaneous unit was used to obtain the results presented in this application note. The instrument was fitted with a SmartGonio™ covering elements from Al (Z=13) to U (Z=92) and with fixed channels for elements Mg (Z=12) and Na (Z=11).

The ARL OPTIM’X XRF spectrometers are fitted with a low power Rh anode X-ray tube and the geometry of the instrument is optimized to provide the highest sensitivity. It does not require external or internal water cooling. The spectrometer superior precision, short and long term stability. It can analyse Na and Mg without problem. Ease of operation is obtained through OXSAS, our modern, powerful and user-friendly software supporting instrument operation and data handling.
