Analysis of Secondary Components in Iron Ore and Iron Sinter

The concentrations of secondary components such as Mg, Al, Si, P, K, Ca, and Ti, play a deciding role in the quality control of iron ore and iron sinter. The increasing need for quality control throughout the various stages of mining, transport and further processing into iron sinter, call for an analysis close to the production and processing sites.

Centralized laboratory analysis has historically been conducted using atomic absorption, ICP and XRF. However, a compact, benchtop, X-ray fluorescence spectrometer, like SPECTRO XEPOS, makes it possibile to move the analysis closer to the production and processing sites – saving analysis time and increasing production throughput.

This report shows that the SPECTRO XEPOS simultaneous XRF spectrometer provides a fast, reliable and economic solution to analyze secondary components in iron ore and iron sinter.
