Preparation of pellets in steel rings (51. 5 mm diameter), backloading procedure for diffractometry

Different materials, raw meal, clinker, cement, slag, ores, oxidic material, ferroalloys (feed size 100µm)

Operation mode
Automatic, standalone, standalone with magazine, linear automation, robot automation


Special pelletizing process
The pressing process is completely compatible with the requirements of the XRD analysis. Low pressing forces are applied so as to avoid any orientation of the crystals. The application of the back loading process ensures especially careful handling of the sample without any adverse influence on the surface to be analyzed. This guarantees accurate structure analysis results.

High throughput
The special design of the automation with simultaneous sample processing guarantees a high sample throughput whenever required.

Reproducibility, avoidance of contamination
HERZOG’s decades of experience combined with leading technology guarantee absolute precise reproducibility of the sample quality. The special focus on cleaning of relevant machine parts prevents contamination of subsequent samples.

Compact design, scalability
The compact design enables optimum use of space without restricting machine maintenance. All components of the HERZOG automation are perfectly aligned and thus ensure optimum analysis results. The automation can be individually adjusted to suit customer specifications and requirements.

Fully automatic connection to the analyzer
Almost all XRD analyzers produced by leading manufacturers can be easily connected to the HERZOG automation. ysis surface faces upwards and can be conveyed into the analyzer.
