FLUXANA is a German contract laboratory that provides a full range of X-ray fluorescence (XRF) solutions to many industries, including steel production. The company’s offerings include commercial XRF analysis, reference materials, proficiency tests, sample preparation equipment, and complete application development including introduction to onsite methodology in the customer laboratory.
Laboratory-based XRF systems provide qualitative and quantitative analysis for process and quality control. Wavelength dispersive x-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) is the standard test method for analytical laboratories serving applications as diverse as cement manufacturing, metallurgy, mining, geology and geochemistry, petroleum, polymers, glass and ceramics, semiconductors, paints and chemicals, forensics investigations, and environmental applications.
As FLUXANA’s clients move away from wet chemistry analysis and toward XRF technology, they are increasingly demanding instrumentation that achieves the production control they need while being easy to use at the same time. In this 5-minute video, Dr. Rainer Schramm, Managing Director of FLUXANA, describes his experience using a newly-designed XRF spectrometer for high-precision analysis.
