Why use grinding aids with your hydraulic press?

A hydraulic press creates samples of bulk materials through compression. These discs and pellets can be used in X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) and Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) sample preparation to understand the material’s quality and what elements are present.

To continuously reproduce and maintain your results during XRF and ICP spectrometry, you need to focus on your sample preparation before it is used in the pressing equipment. Grinding aids can enhance the effectiveness of grinding during the pelletising process to ensure the pellet or disc sample has the right size distribution of particles.

It is important that you use the best grinding aid when you create your sample. That way you can enhance its homogeneity and decrease the likelihood of sample contamination fro...

How Pelletizing reagents enhance compacting performance

In the mining industry, the accuracy of analytical results is paramount. X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis is a widely accepted method for determining the elemental composition of mineral samples. However, the quality of the sample preparation method can significantly influence the accuracy of the XRF analysis. Enter Pelletizing reagents, which have emerged as a game-changer in enhancing compacting performance, ensuring that samples for analysis are of the highest quality.

The Importance of Sample Preparation for XRF Analysis

Before diving into the role of Pelletizing in the XRF sample preparation process, it’s essential to understand the ...
