Quantitative Analysis of Dolomite and Limestone by Pressed Powder Method with Supermini200

This application note demonstrates the excellent performance of Supermini200 for the analysis of dolomite and limestone.


Both dolomite and limestone are important mineral resources used in various industries such as cement, electronics, iron manufacturing, glass, paper and pulp, agriculture. Each industry has particular interests in contents and components. For example in the cement industry, dolomite and limestone are sources of Ca. In iron manufacturing, Ca acts as an absorber of impuri-ties like Si, S and P, and Mg protects the furnace walls from corrosive elements like S and P. In the glass in-dustry, low content of Fe is preferred because Fe can color glass.

The new Supermini200 has improved software capabilities as well as a better footprint. As the world's only high-power benchtop sequential wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) spectrometer for elemental analysis of oxygen (O) through uranium (U) of almost any material, the Rigaku Supermini200 uniquely delivers low cost-of-ownership (COA) with high resolution and lower limits-of-detection (LLD).
