X-Ray Assay Laboratories (lake sediment) XRF-pressed disc(S)

X-Ray Assay Laboratories, lake sediment; X-ray fluorescence- pressed discs (sulfur)

General Methodology:

Sulphur was determined by the x-ray fluorescence pressed disc method.  The sample is mixed with an organic binder and pressed into a pellet in a hydraulic press.  The pellet is then taken to an x-ray fluorescence spectrometer for analysis and the results calculated by a mini computer.
