X-Ray Analyser:

GCIPL has installed an X-Ray analyser to analyse and define all the chemical components in Clinker and Cement.
The principle of X-Ray Fluorescence spectroscopy is based on the fact, that atoms, when irradiated with X-rays, irradiate secondary X-Rays the fluorescence radiation.
XRF analysis is applied in Cement Industries because:.

  •  The wavelength and energy of the fluorescence radiation is specific for each element.
  • The concentration of each element can be calculated using the intensity of the fluorescence radiation.

XRF is an analytical method to determine the chemical composition of all kinds of materials.
The materials can be in solid, liquid, powder, filtered.
The method of fast, accurate and non-destructive, and usually requires only a minimum of sample preparation.
Applications are very broad and include metal, cement, oil, polymer, plastic and food industries, along with mining, mineralogy and geology, and environmental analysis of water and waste materials.
XRF is also a very useful analysis technique for research and pharmacy.

The precision and reproducibility of XRF analysis is very high.

We analyse limestone, clay, bauxite, sandstone, laterite, raw meal, kiln feed, clinker and cement.

The method of fast, accurate and non-destructive, and usually requires only a minimum of sample preparation. Applications are very broad and include metal, cement, oil, polymer, plastic and food industries, along with mining, mineralogy and geology, and environmental analysis of water and waste materials. XRF is also a very useful analysis technique for research and pharmacy.

The major components to test are, the quantity and the quality of Si, Al, Fe, Ca, Mg, SO3, Na and K
