Ways to Identify Metals
Concerned about the elemental quality of your metal?
Traditional Testing Method
- Surface Appearance Test
Analyses the shape, form, colour and the surface’s smoothness / roughness. However, test method does not guarantee nor provide sufficient information needed to classify the metal.
- Rockwell Test
Measure the hardness of the metal (by the depth of an indentation made by a cone-shaped point in a Rockwell hardness-testing machine). Can only measure one part of the metal.
Modern Testing Method
X-ray Fluorescence (XRF)
uses high-energy X-rays, to force excitement in the sample to emit certain characteristic rays which are readable by the XRF spectrometer to identify its element.
Traditional methods can takes years of training to master the right skills to apply its methodology. By using spectrometers, metal workers can be trained and begin their projects within minutes.
