Type Standardization

Optimize your metal analysis

Type Standardization minimizes setup times of similar applications, and reduces the need for standard reference materials, by enabling a series of calibrations to be obtained from a single master calibration. One type standard per metal grade is sufficient to create a derived calibration. Correction factors are obtained from the calibration to use in accurate routine analysis of samples of the same metal grade.

Type Standardization is a well-known method in the steel and metals industry, but can also be applied to correct for mineralogical effects.

Analysis of grades

Malvern Panalytical’s Type Standardization XRF analysis software enables elemental analysis of grades of metals, using just the calibration lines of a typical metal grade.


Easy-to-use software

Analysis can be executed without operator intervention and data can be transmitted to a laboratory information management system (LIMS). Type Standardization automatically selects the appropriate grade and new grades can be added with just a few key strokes.
