Finished Portland Cement

AppNote XRF1748: analysis of finished Portland cement

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 quality control analyzer to ensure proper composition 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 DE combines direct excitation with special tube filters and a high performance high throughput SDD detector to yield the excellent performance for oxide measurements of cement. During the entire production and processing cycle, oxide composition of the cement material must be reliably monitored to ensure optimal process control, physical characteristics of the cement, as well as profitability. Rigaku NEX DE analyzer is an ideal tool throughout the quality control process and as a backup to WDXRF systems, making it a versatile and valuable tool for several applications within the cement industry.
