ASTM C114 cement qualification

AppNote XRF1027: Cement qualification per ASTM C114

Background

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. 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.
