Iron and nickel can be analyzed in the following packages:
To select the method that is right for your purpose, please carefully review the measurement ranges and intended application. For example, MMI is a leach used for exploration, whereas Dimethylglyoxime (CON07V) is used for high concentrations of nickel in metal.
Iron ore occurs in many mineral forms (hematite, magnetite, goethite, limonite or siderite) and each has specific analysis requirements. Borate fusion with XRF analysis is an extremely robust technique for major and minor elemental analysis in complex mineralization and offers highly precise and accurate results for iron ore samples. This method is not suitable for high sulfide materials >1%.
Borate fusion with XRF for majors - Al2O3, CaO, Cr2O3, K2O, MgO, MnO, Na2O, P2O5, Fe2O3, SiO2, TiO2, V2O5, SUM, LOI and S as SO3 and minors As, Ba, Cl, Co,Cu, Ni, Pb, Sn, Sr, Ta, V, Zn, ZrAvailable at specific sites only.
At every stage of your project, SGS chemists perform quality, rapid-turnaround analyses targeting a wide variety of elements in many types of sample matrices. We have firmly committed to advanced technology, and this commitment ensures we can deliver on our promise to provide benchmark-setting services.
