Application Note: Analysis of Iron in Aluminum
6 July 2012

This application note demonstrates the analysis of iron in aluminum extrusion billets. In order to ensure consistent production, the levels of iron must be closely monitored in the QA/QC process, and a simple and fast analysis is required at the production line in order to maintain the optimum product output. The NEX QC benchtop EDXRF analyzer from Rigaku is a reliable tool for the non-destructive measurement of iron and other elements in aluminum.
