Cement Analysis - Field proven, robust and reliable
Fast and accurate cement analysis is required for today’s cement manufacturing industry. This ensures continuous 24/7 high quality and cost-effective quality control delivering results from chemical analysis of the cement materials just a few minutes after the sample is taken.
X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) analysis can be used at many stages of the cement analysis process, from raw materials, i.e. at the quarry, to intermediate products (clinker, gypsum, limestone) and the finished product (cement). In all cases robust, simple to use XRF instruments, operated by production staff can provide cost-effective chemical composition analysis allowing the cement to be continuously produced on a 24/7 basis with no delays or reworks.
The Lab-X3500 and X-Supreme8000 are XRF analysers that can typically measure MgO, Al2O3, SiO2, SO3, K2O, CaO and Fe2O3 in cement materials. The same procedure can be used to measure sulphate addition in gypsum, analysing the powder sample directly with no additional sample preparation.
The cement analysers are located on the production site, typically in a control room and operated by production staff.
