Elemental analysis of Metals - XRF or spark OES?

  • Laurens Van Ginderdeuren

Spectro can offer 3 instruments for fast metal analysis: The xSORT, using XRF technique, and the spectroport/spectrotest (using spark-OES technique). Both techniques use the principals of spectrometry, but the preparation, speed of analysis, handling and precision are different. This lecture will go over the differences between both techniques. This is of great importance when choosing the right instrument for incoming/outgoing quality control.
