Application Note: Quantitative Analysis of Blast Furnace Slag by Fusion Method on the ZSX Primus III
10 January 2013

Blast furnace slag is formed when iron ore or iron pellet, coke and flux are melted in a blast furnace. X-ray fluorescence spectrometers are the most common analysis tools to analyze powder samples in the iron and steel making process. This application note describes blast furnace slag analysis using the ZSX Primus III+, which provides a high precision and accuracy using the fusion method.
