Precious Metals Analysis


Precious metals are used not only for jewelry? Certain electronics, lab equipment, even the banking industry, and medicine can’t make it without high-quality precious metals. To make sure the properties of the material are appropriate for usage in a particular business, it has to be analyzed.

It’s crucial to know what additions there are in the alloy or what additional layers the “clean” metal has as they affect the strength, resistance to corrosion and other damage, and ductility. This is where XRF (X-ray fluorescent) technology helps.

Precious metals analysis

Nowadays, XRF technology is the best solution to determine the full composition of any precious metal. The advantages are plenty and resolving most of the issues of the old analysis methods:

  • No material loss and metal destruction/breakage
  • The analyzed item remains of the same weight and form
  • High accuracy and speed; you can see the full result report in several seconds
  • A wide range of sizes and shapes of objects that can be analyzed
  • All-component XRF precious metals testing that doesn’t prolong the procedure
  • Recognition of harmful elements like Ir, Cd, Ru, Pb, as well as coatings such as gliding
  • No consumables needed
  • The objects don’t have to be prepared to undergo the procedure
