XRD XRF Projects

Below you will find some of the many projects Sietronics Lab Services have been involved with over the years. For information specific to you please don’t hesitate to contact the lab

Mining and mineralogical analysis

  • Core TrayOre and gangue mineral identification and quantification
  • Magnetic Separation of iron bearing minerals 
  • Mineral Sands Analysis (ore to concentrate)
  • Mineralogy of core, boreholes and stratigraphic units
  • Coal mineralogy and Coal Ash Analysis
  • Poorly Diffracting Material (amorphous) in Bauxites.
  • Gold Exploration- Screening XRF analysis for “indicator elements” for hundreds of samples, giving vital information on concentrations of these elements in quick turn-around time to aid decision making and targeting potential areas for further detailed analysis and exploration.


  • Bulk Mineralogy
  • Clay characterisation, identification and quantification

Concrete and cement

  • Cement AnalysisFree Lime
  • Fly Ash
  • Clinker
  • Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC)
  • Iron sulfide (pyrite, marcasites, etc) in aggregate 


  • Contaminated  land RehabContaminated land cleanup 
  • Speciation of inorganic compounds
  • Restriction of Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS/WEEE)


  • Pipe ScaleScale and pipe build up
  • Geosynthetic Clay Liner (GCL)- Analysis for quality control purposes
  • Paint and Pigment analysis
  • Ceramics
  • Identification and separation of Leaded Glass
  • Phase composition of refractory bricks
  • Sand analysis for Glass industry (iron content)
  • Diatomaceous Earth Analysis
  • Positive Material Identification (PMI) and grade separation


  • Corrosion Product Analysis
  • Process Metallurgy


  • Coal dust filterAnalysis of silica forms- Identification of SiO2 forms i.e. Quarts, Cristobalite, Trydimite
  • Amorphous / Poorly Diffracting Material / Glass analysis
  • Asbestos speciation
  • Air filter dust analysis
