ASTM C114 cement qualification

This Application Note demonstrates ASTM qualification for hydraulic cement analysis using the NEX CG EDXRF analyzer for the measurement of oxides in accordance with ASTM C114.

Background

EDXRF is a simple analysis technique used in cement plants around the world. The technique is ideal for QA/QC throughout the cement production process. EDXRF can be used as a screening tool and a QC analyzer to ensure proper quality of incoming feedstocks, raw meal mixture balances, addition of gypsum and throughout the manufacturing process. The EDXRF analyzer also makes an excellent backup instrument for the WDXRF analyzer used for final QC and certification.

Rigaku NEX CG delivers rapid qualitative and quantitative determination of major and minor atomic elements in a wide variety of sample types — with minimal standards. Unlike conventional EDXRF analyzers, the NEX CG was engineered with a unique close-coupled Cartesian Geometry (CG) optical kernel that dramatically increases signal-to-noise. Read more...
