Waste materials are increasingly being used in the cement making process, bringing about many changes. When they contain the main cement making components, waste materials can replace some of the natural raw materials and combustible wastes can help from the kiln. This means more testing of the incoming raw materials, both during the process and in the final product. Thus, for a cement plant to compete in today's cost conscious market, its analytical capabilities must be extensive, cost-efficient, and flexible.
It is important that any new analytical methods required for this type of analysis fit easily into existing procedures. X-Ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrometry is one of the simplest instrumental techniques for analysis in a cement works because the sample preparation is simple. For many years, bench-top wavelength dispersive x-ray fluorescence (WD-XRF) spectrometers have been used successfully as a quality control tool in cement plants to control incoming material as well as production samples.
Skyray Instrument has the WDX200, WDX400 and WDX4000 for different cement plants analysis requirements, they will offer you a cost-efficient and simple working procedure.
