ZSXmini Benchtop WDXRF—Cement Analyzer

ZSX Mini™ benchtop WDXRF cement analyzer

The Woodlands, TX — May 29, 2002. At PittCon 2002 in New Orleans, LA, Rigaku introduced the latest ZSXmini benchtop WDXRF cement analyzer. A full range, easy to use, bench top Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometer at an affordable price, the ZSXmini's small footprint makes it a perfect choice for cement industry applications either in the production environment or in the lab. Optimized for cement applications, it is also the perfect back up for "main-frame" WDXRF spectrometer systems for analyzing: raw meal (Na2O, Al2O3, MgO, SiO2, K2O, CaO and Fe2O3) as well as finished cement (SO3). The ZSXmini has passed the C114 ASTM performance test.

Rigaku WDXRF analyzers can measure clinker, raw meal, limestone and other components of cement, as well as the cement itself. Controlling the ratios of these components is necessary for quality control of the final concrete product. Both bench-top (ZSXmini) and full-sized (ZSX) WDXRF models have been developed to provide fast and precise measurement of all relevant elements, with unmatched accuracy and precision.
