Elemental analysis

Elemental analysis

We can perform elemental analysis on a wide range of materials by using X-Ray fluorescence spectrometry (XRF). We have a state-of-the-art X-Ray Fluorescence spectrometer that can provide manufacturers with detailed information on the composition of solids, powders and liquids.

XRF techniques can be used to help improve and monitor the quality of products. XRF analysis is cheap, rapid, and numerous samples can be tested in one batch.

Using XRF techniques to improve and monitor the quality of products will lead to cost savings for any business. Applications include elemental analysis of

  • ferrous, aluminium and copper based alloys
  • glasses, ceramics and polymers
  • refractories and slags
  • rocks and minerals
  • cements and mortars
  • soils, sediments and sludges
  • airborne particulates

We also provide advanced training for those using the XRF technique in industry and research through a range of career development opportunities in materials analysis.
