Fe, SiO₂ and S in magnetite ore concentrate

AppNote XRF1480: iron, silicon dioxide and sulfur in magnetite ore concentrate

Background

Ore is ground, cleaned, separated and concentrated in preparation for smelting. Impurities such as silicon dioxide and sulfur are considered penalty elements as they can adversely affect the quality of the beneficiation, concentrating and smelting processes, as well as the final properties of the iron or steel being produced. Rigaku NEX QC+ offers technicians a fast and simple means of monitoring elemental composition of ores and concentrates, and is a tool that can be used for quality checks throughout the entire smelting process.
