Application Note: Analysis of Inorganic Major and Minor Compounds in Unashed Coal Samples
27 April 2018

Coal is classified and valued according to its sulfur, phosphorous, volatile and ash content. The composition of ash can effect coal processing, handling and final usage. This application note demonstrates the use of the Epsilon 4 energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometer for the analysis of inorganic compounds (Na2O, MgO, Al2O3, SiO2, P2O5, S, K2O, CaO, TiO2, MnO, Fe2O3 SrO and BaO) in unashed coal samples.
