Accurate Quantitative Analysis of Ferrosilicon by the Fusion Method Using ZSX Primus III+
This application note describes accurate ferrosilicon analysis using ZSX Primus III+, which is optimized for process control of steel making and ferrosilicon production.
Ferrosilicon is one of the most basic materials of steel making process. The iron alloys with the content of silicon between 15% and 90% are called "ferrosilicon", which aims reduction, removing oxygen and adding silicon when cast iron or steel alloy is produced. As part of controlling the steel making process, analyses of slag and raw materials such as quicklime are also required. X-ray fluorescence spectrometers are the most common analysis tools to analyze ferroalloy, slag, steel and added materials owing to the rapid analysis and the ability to measure both bulk metal and powders.
Rigaku ZSX Primus III+ delivers rapid quantitative determination of major and minor atomic elements, from oxygen (O) through uranium (U), in a wide variety of sample types — with minimal standards. Read more...
