S2 RANGER, Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence

Fast Analysis of MgO and Main Components in Limestone

XRF Lab Report - S2 RANGER

S2 RANGER Lab Report, XRF

This report describes the analytical performance of the S2 RANGER with XFlash® detector for limestone samples, including the light element magnesium.

Like anywhere in the industrial minerals sector, mined raw material as well as processed limestone must be monitored on a daily basis in order to ensure constant composition and quality of the final products.

The required precision is on the order of 0.1 wt. % for the MgO content. This is a demanding requirement because MgO in limestone produces low fluorescence yield and heavier elements cause high absorption of X-rays in the matrix.
