Energy Dispersive X-Ray Fluorescence

(EDXRF) is a routinely used analytical technique for the qualitative and quantitative determination of major and minor atomic elements in a wide variety of sample types. The heart of its versatility stems from the ability to provide rapid, non-destructive, multi-element analyses — from low parts-per-million (ppm) levels to high weight percent (wt%) concentrations — for elements from sodium (11Na) through uranium (92U).
For geology application, in studying Earth, geologists routinely analyze the composition of rock and mineral samples. Rapid elemental analyses can be accomplished with NEX QC series of elemental analyzers without sample digestion. Common industrial geological applications include analysis of limestone, kaolin clay and silica sand.
For mining and refining application that foundries, smelters and mills are characterized by having continuous production, demanding control of both the process and the quality of incoming and outgoing materials. Our EDXRF elemental analyzers may be used to analyze ores, feeds, slags and tails. Low cost EDXRF also makes an ideal backup analyzer.
Our EDXRF spectrometer delivers routine elemental measurements across a diverse range of matrices — from homogeneous liquids of any viscosity to solids, thin films, alloys, slurries, powders and pastes.
