Abstract

Chemical composition analysis using x-ray fluorescence is one of the important quality analysis for examining of cement and widely used in cement industries for a long time as a tool to estimate phase composition. X-ray diffraction is one of the established techniques as a qualitative tool to identify phase existing in the sample. This study will discuss about the correlation between quantitative and qualitative analyses in order to understand phase transformation in production of cement. Qualitative analysis had revealed a lot of information which could not be identified by using x-ray fluorescence especially polymorphisms existed in the clinker samples.
