Ferro alloys analysis: a comparative study between pressed powders and fused beads

Ferroalloys are important components in metals production with iron and steel smelters as the leading customers of ferroalloys. This webinar will illustrate advantages of using X-ray fluorescence (XRF) as a standard method for the analysis of ferroalloys of various composition. A comparative study between the analysis of ferroalloys prepared as pressed powders and fused beads will be shown for production control. The webinar will also illustrate advantages of using wavelength dispersive (WD) or Energy Dispersive (ED) XRF.

The webinar targets mainly operators and managers from process control departments of steel smelters, aluminum smelters, service laboratories involved with metal industries as well as all scientists from the analytical chemistry sector, interested in new developments of fusion methods of ferroalloy materials ultimately analyzed by XRF.

Panelist: Micaela Longo graduated in Mineralogy at the University of Rome (Italy). She obtained a PhD. Degree in Experimental Mineralogy and Petrology at the University of Bayreuth (Germany) working on the development of a spectroscopic method for determination of Fe speciation in minerals. Afterwards she joined PANalytical (Almelo, The Netherlands) and is now working in the department of Product Management X-ray Fluorescence focusing on metals.
