Precious Metal Determination in Automotive Catalyst Recycling Using Rigaku EDXRF

Precious Metal Determination in Automotive Catalyst Recycling Using Rigaku EDXRF

 

In this webinar, we discuss the measurement of Pt, Pd and Rh catalysts in used, recycled automotive catalytic converters using Rigaku Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (EDXRF) analyzers. Analytical methodologies are discussed, including screening, mixed homogeneous ceramic cats, diesel cats, and the use of Rigaku Matching Library software to optimize the measurement of similar families of auto cats and match the XRF to fire assay or ICP values.
