Little effort with shortest measurement times

The production and burning of solid recovered fuels (SRF) require the compliance with limit values set for chlorine and heavy metals. Excessive chlorine concentrations could result in environmental pollution and significant corrosion damages in incineration plants, which is why the analysis of chlorine is of utmost economic importance. The X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF spectroscopy) is an established method for a fast and non-destructive elemental analysis of materials of any kind. DIN EN 15309 regulates the use of XRF spectroscopy in waste management. This method of analysis is characterised by

  • little effort during sample preparation;
  • short measurement times (in a matter of seconds or minutes);

thus making it ideal for a high number of individual measurements.

In addition to the XRF spectroscopy, portable NIR-analysers can be used to differentiate plastics or when setting and controlling automatic sorting plants.

Application advantages

XRF measurements offer you the following advantages:

  • Screening on input materials (freight carriers) without the need for sample preparation
  • Analysis on SRF-material even before or alternatively to chemical analysis (reset and chemical verification on the same sample possible)
  • Results in a matter of seconds
  • Immediate clearance or stoppage of delivery possible
