Minerals are the initial materials of all manufactured metallic and ceramic products. Hence, purity and quality of minerals affect directly all further process steps towards the final product. Elemental analysis of carbon, sulfur, oxygen, nitrogen and hydrogen concentrations contributes to classification and certification of mined materials for a higher product quality and a more efficient production.

Classification of metal bearing ores

Refining and further processing of metal bearing ores depends on the chemical composition of the minerals. Thus, carbon, sulfur and oxygen analysis is of great importance to classify the mined materials. The inductar® series suits perfectly to this application as the ceramic sample containers are optimized for powder samples. Dust and debris are reduced, which results in larger maintenance intervals and lower costs per analysis.
