Analysing coal with x-ray diffraction

Published by , Editor
World Coal,

X-ray diffraction (XRD) is a non-destructive analytical technique that provides crystal structure information (crystallite size, % crystallinity, etc.), phase identification (e.g. minerals), and quantification of phases present in a sample. Modern XRD equipment is easy to use, can measure samples in minutes and provides automated, quantitative analysis. XRD can be a fast and efficient way to determine coal quality, total ash and amorphous carbon content in coal without the need for standards, monitors and calibrations.
