Cement Raw Meal Analysis

Cement is one of the most important materials for construction. Various physical properties are given to cement by changing the mineral composition of clinker; therefore, it is important to control the chemical composition of cement raw meal. XRF spectrometry has been used for chemical composition analysis in cement production processes owing to its simple sample preparation, rapid analysis and high precision. This application note demonstrates quantitative analysis for cement raw meal by the pressed powder method on Rigaku ZSX PrimusIII+, a sequential wavelength dispersive XRF spectrometer.
