Malvern Panalytical participated in a field experiment PANGAEA-X 2017 organized by ESA for the chemical analysis of water-related minerals in volcanic landscapes. For this exercise, Lanzarote was selected, the island of 1000 volcanoes.
Two transportable analytical devices from Malvern Panalytical, Epsilon 1 and the ASD TerraSpec Halo, were used for quick identification of minerals in rocks and dust particles. Since both devices use X-rays and infrared energies, they are non-destructive and therefore are complementary techniques for chemical analyses.

Together with Jesús Frías, Professor of planetary geochemistry at the Geosciences Institute in Spain, …

For quality and process control many elemental analysis techniques are available. Let’s see how ICP, AAS, ICP-MS, ICP-OES and X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF) stack up are traditional techniques used in many industries. Each of these techniques has a number of advantages and disadvantages giving the analyst the flexibility to choose which technology suits best. When the required limits of quantification are above 1 ppm (µg/g), or when the non-destructive analysis is required, XRF is a very attractive technique that should be considered, especially when analyzing solids, powders, slurries, filters, and …
