Metal Analysis & Scrap Sorting

Scrap metal identification and sorting are some of the most important tasks in recycling. The analysis might take days if not months, depending on the pile. But if you have a handheld XRF for scrap metal sorting, speed and efficiency are guaranteed.


Alloys That Can Be Detected During Scrap Metal Identification

X-ray spectrometer analysis will detect and identify all steels, as well as the following alloy bases:
  • Alluminium
  • Magnesium
  • Titanium
  • Cobalt
  • Nickel
  • Copper
  • Zinc
  • Precious metals
  • Rare-Earth metals
  • Niobium
  • Lead
  • Zinc
  • Tin

  • This list is sufficient for any metal sample identification with a handheld XRF for scrap metal sorting.
