Process and Quality Control by X-ray Powder Diffraction


XRD combined with TOPAS Rietveld analysis is nowadays the most powerful technique for doing quantitative phase analysis of hotmeal, bypass, kilndust, clinker and cements.

DIFFRAC.Loader Software

Combined with the XRD Method Package Cement the new D8 ENDEAVOR is the perfect solution for the industry.

It offers direct phase analysis along the entire production process, ranging from raw materials, intermediate products like hotmeal and dusts (REACH) to clinker and the finalized cements. Analytical highlights are the capability to distinguish the Alite polymorphs M1 & M3 and the quantification of amorphous phases by the proprietary PONKCS method.

D8 ENDEAVOR Minerals

The most direct method of mineral identification and quantification is powder X-ray diffraction (XRD) with the D8 ENDEAVOR Minerals.



Identification of a long d-spacing clay

Complex geologic materials can reliably be analyzed using TOPAS quantitative analysis.

Furthermore, cluster analysis techniques can be used to quickly and automatically analyze large amounts of data for similarities and generate exploration mappings. Download our D8 ENDEAVOR Minerals flyer.


X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) is a widely used analytical method for the process and quality control of making steel.

Knowing the exact FeO concentration in the raw material is key to cut the greenhouse-gas emission of iron plants.

The FeO amount can directly be calculated from the stoichiometry and concentration of the minerals. These values determined by rapid XRD makes it a very fast alternative to titration. Download our D8 ENDEAVOR Metals flyer.

D8 ENDEAVOR Aluminum

Controlling the aluminum production is a crucial while demanding X-ray diffraction (XRD) analytical task.

Graphical User Interface Alubath-Routine

Firstly, due to the harsh environment in a smelter, where the XRD instrument needs to be located.

And secondly, due to the enormous sample throughput required to successively probe hundreds of smelter cells permanently. The D8 ENDEAVOR addresses these challenges with technological innovations reducing measurement times and expanding analysis capabilities. Download our D8 ENDEAVOR Alu flyer.

Respirable Silica

Construction work of cutting stone

The D8 ENDEAVOR is best suited to monitor lowest amounts of free silica, a material that causes lung cancer and other severe health issues.
