XRF application package for ferro alloys & metal powders
The analysis of ferro alloys and metal powders is performed traditionally on pressed powders. Because of particle size effects, reproducibility is limited to 0.5 to 2% and sometimes even worse.The FLUXANA fusion method for these materials performs oxidation of the sample in the crucible and a final reproducibility of less than 0.5%
The VULCAN fusion machine from Fluxana
The current VULCAN series of fusion machines is based on more than 15 years experience working with fusion applications in industry. There are now more than 500 machines installed worldwide, renowned for their reliability in unbeaten reproducibility of results.
High purity pre-fused flux
High quality fluxes are essential for high precision analysis. Each batch produced is controlled and supplied to you with a certificate of analysis
One set of calibration standards, ready to measure
FeSi, FeMo, FeMn, FeSiMn, FeCr, FeTi
One set of drift monitors
The two multi element drift monitors supplied will be used to compensate for XRF spectrometer drift over time. During installation there is an optimisation procedure to guarantee long term precision, especially for the important elements, calcium and silicon.
One set of validation samples
The final validation is a critical step. The calibration will be checked with validation samples. These may be chosen by the user
Installation of the method and calibration on site
The calibration will be installed and adapted to your XRF spectrometer to achieve the accuracy and precision required for the application.
Final validation with routine samples
Comprehensive user training will be given on all aspects of the sample preparation, equipment and methods.
