Offers comparable precision and resolution, as well as excellent sensitivity for light elements.

Rigaku Corporation has announced the publication of a new application report on the new Rigaku Supermini200, the world’s only benchtop WDXRF spectrometer and the latest in a series of revolutionary compact wavelength-dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) systems from Rigaku.

Application Note #5042 details the analysis of low-alloy steels, with complete information regarding sample preparation, method calibration and repeatability.

The mechanical properties of low-alloy steel are determined by the concentrations of the different elements added to the steel, some at very low levels.

Precise monitoring of alloyant concentration is essential to quality steel production, but it must be done very quickly to minimize energy costs. For these reasons, WDXRF is a popular analytical technique in the metals industry.

The Supermini200 offers comparable precision and resolution, as well as excellent sensitivity for light elements - such as silicon, aluminum and phosphorus - in a lower-cost, low-maintenance benchtop package that gives steel producers a compact, convenient alternative to large, high-power WDXRF spectrometers without compromising performance.

As such, the Supermini200 can be the most cost-effective solution for steel mills and commercial laboratories that analyze metal samples.

The results detailed in the report show that high precision and accurate analysis of the elements in low alloy steel can be rapidly performed using the benchtop WDXRF Supermini200.
