FLSmidth’s at-line X-ray analysis solution concept combines high frequency sampling with X-ray fluorescence spectrometry  for tight on-line chemical quality control of powder/granular process streams. Quality control of cement raw meal by XRF is the main focus application; however, the concept also supports applications like at-line analysis of clinker and cement, as well as other dry powder or granular intermediate/final products in other mineral processes. 

Key Benefits Include

  • Project specific primary sampling system ( screw sampler, an air-slide sampler or others)
  • Sample by-pass tube with secondary sample dosing device
  • Excess sample return system by gravity or forced via air conveying
  • Centaurus automatic combined mill & press,  for X-ray sample preparation
  •  X-ray analysis unit (XRF)
