Sample preparation in the Ceramics Sector

27th May 2015

This application note provides detail on the increasingly important analysis of both crude materials and finished products for quality assurance in the ceramics (including clays and chamottes) industries.

Sample preparation, prior to subsequent testing, such as X-ray fluorescence, has therefore become a crucial element of the process. The choice of the Fritsch PULVERISETTE 6 with planetary mill and an agate grinding set, by leading producers Goerg & Schneider, indicates the effectiveness of the equipment in this role; with an estimated 90% saving in man hours.
