The present problem in cement production is to define the close monitoring of all materials involved in the process. Bruker AXS, together with cement manufacturers, has created the exclusive XRF solution to make this analytical task an effortless job in day-to-day routines.
The robust analytical solution—CEMENT-QUANT XRF— enables users to leverage the maximum performance of the S8 TIGER Series 2 and the S2 PUMA Series for process and quality control in cement works in a rapid and simple way.
XRF Results Conform to ASTM, EN, and ISO
CEMENT-QUANT offers a workflow to comply with good laboratory practice (GLP). This involves a repeatability check for the sample preparation and a quality check procedure for instrument stability—completely meeting the international standards ASTM C114 and DIN EN ISO 29581-2.
In addition, CEMENT-QUANT comprises a set of predefined applications for the XRF analysis of process materials such as clinker, raw mix, and cement prepared as pressed pellets and for the most precise results as fused beads.
The Complete XRF-Package for all Tasks—Traceable CRM Included
Users can make traceable and accurate calibrations for their factory materials in just three steps, because CEMENT-QUANT is now available with a set of international certified reference materials (CRM).
- Step 1 – Preparing the certified reference samples as fused beads
- Step 2 – Quantifying these reference samples with the CEMENT-QUANT technique
- Step 3 – Calibrating to make it ready for analysis and traceable to NIST
As per GLP demands, an extra QC sample is incorporated to determine the routine quality check with automatic limit monitoring. Users can avoid weeks of calibration and learning time, since the CEMENT-QUANT solution frees up laboratory staff working in cement QC from time-intensive application development.
