Cluster analysis for better mine planning and grade control
Cluster analysis of XRD data can facilitate multi-dimensional compositional mapping of ore deposits and drill cores, identifying regions of favorable mineral paragenesis.
High-speed sample throughput featuring quick turnaround times
Ultrafast sample loading in combination with a high-speed linear detector such as X’Celerator allow a higher sample throughput that enables the user to control their processes more effectively. Measurement times of 5 minutes can be easily achieved.
Best sensitivity for impurities allows fast process optimization
Sample-specific X-ray tubes and optics allow lower detection limits for gangue minerals and impurities. This knowledge can be used to optimize beneficiation processes and the use of low grade ores to improve the efficiency of the mine.
Straightforward, chemical-free sample preparation
Sample preparation of powders does not involve any chemicals. Grinding and pressing can be automated in line with the X-ray diffractometer. Special samples such as solid rocks or minerals, wet samples from beneficiation plants and very small amounts of minerals can be prepared manually in less than 5 minutes in special sample holders.
