This data sheet shows that the Epsilon 4 - a high-performance energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometer - is capable of analyzing Mn, Fe, Mg, Al, Si, P, S, Ca and Ba in manganese ore samples.
Manganese ore is an important raw material for metal industries. Manganese is a key component of stainless steel formulations and widely used aluminum alloys. Accurate elemental analysis of manganese ore samples plays a very important role in manganese ore mine mapping. The concentrations of Mn and Fe determine manganese ore pricing. The presence of P and S has strong influence on the quality of steels and aluminum alloys. XRF analysis is a useful tool in classifying and quality controlling the compositions of the manganese ore materials.
