Application Note: Quantitative Analysis of Low Alloy Steel Using the Supermini200
8 November 2012

As part of the control of the steel making process, analyses of slag and raw materials such as quicklime and ferroalloys are also required. X-ray fluorescence spectrometers are the most common analysis tools to analyze steel owing to rapid analysis and the ability to measure both bulk metal and powders. This application note describes low alloy steel analysis using the Supermini200 from Rigaku, which is optimized for process control. The results show that, high precision and accurate analysis of the elements in low alloy steel can rapidly be performed using the Benchtop WDX Supermini200.
