Our Technology

XRF Scientific provides technology for sample preparation in the fields of XRF and ICP analysis.

A typical work flow in a XRF laboratory is as follows:

1. Samples are generated through drilling at a mine (iron ore, base metals) or from a production plant (cement, steel etc.)

2. The samples are crushed and pulverised into a fine dust

3. Samples (typically 1gm) are weighed accurately into a XRF Scientific platinum crucible

4. The XRF Scientific flux reagent (typically 10gm) is weighed and then put into the platinum crucible

5. The sample and flux are fused together at high temperatures using a XRF Scientific electric or gas fusion machines

6. The machine automatically pours the molten mixture into a XRF Scientific platinum mould

7. The machine cools and sets the mixture into a glass disc

8. The glass disc is then put inside an XRF spectrometer and analysed for its chemical content
