Accurate wide-range oxide analysis of minerals
The success of any application is dependent on the quality of the calibration standards used. Finding high quality standards in the required analytical range is not only challenging but in most cases extremely expensive. Making synthetic standards is a viable solution but requires significant expertise and time.
PANalytical offers WROXI, which is a set of synthetic standards, together with an application setup for the Zetium XRF spectrometer as a simple solution. The standards enable calibrations for twenty-one major elements in the analysis of oxide materials based on fused beads. These cover a wide range of geological material compositions. The WROXI standards set is suited for a wide variety of materials, including: silicates, carbonates, phosphates, rocks, soils, iron ores, manganese ores, cements.
• Simple sample preparation
• High accuracy and precision
• Good to excellent detection limits
