Improving the accuracy of XRD analysis using new equipment for sample preparation

Preparing the ideal representative sample is one of the most important steps to ensure the accuracy of the quantitative XRD analysis. The preferred orientation in mineral samples with particles of columnar or plate-like shape can affect the correctness of the measurement. This phenomenon most often occurs when the standard method of sample preparation with reverse loading is used. FLSmidth has developed a unique new way of automatic sample preparation for XRD analysis.
