This data sheet demonstrates that the Epsilon 4 – a benchtop energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) spectrometer – is capable of quantifying 11 elements in cast iron, including carbon.

Cast iron is a family of ferrous metals with a wide range of properties that are produced by being cast into shape instead of being machined. Cast iron contains 2 to 4 wt% carbon and 1 to 3 wt% silicon, but a wide range of elements are used to control specific properties. Cast iron has a wide range of mechanical properties, which makes it suitable for use in engineering components. The wide spread use of cast iron is a result of its low cost and versatile properties.
