Grinding and mixing

In the final phase of the production process, various additives are added to the clinker to produce various forms of cement. With the aid of elemental and mineralogical analysis one can determine whether the produced cement indeed falls within the specification of a certain cement type. This is also very important when blended cements are produced using supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs), such as fly ash, slags and pozzolana.

PANalytical’s XRF solutions, such as the Cement edition of Zetium, allow for rapid and accurate analysis of products in the various stages in the production process. It is compliant with the ASTM C114 norm and has a sample changer that can handle up to 200 samples.

Alternatively, the Epsilon 3X is the compact XRF instrument for elemental analysis of cements. The Epsilon 3X is easy to install, requires no liquids or gases and maintenance costs are low, yet it has excellent light element performance.

For the most accurate results of elemental analysis one can use fused beads prepared with PANalytical’s LeNeo automatic fusion sample preparation instrument. With its small footprint and safety lock features, the LeNeo is not only easy but also safe to use. Pair it with Claisse’s flux for optimal results.

PANalytical’s CubiX³ Cement XRD solution is the ideal tool for rapid and reliable mineralogical quantification of the products in the various stages in the production process. The optional X’Changer can handle up to 64 samples. The CubiX³ can be connected with the Cement edition of Zetium using a belt for combined elemental and mineralogical analysis.
