On-site analysis of scrap metal for sorting in the metal recyling industry - Metal - Metal Recycling

Scrap metal sorting requires fast, accurate, on-site analysis. To achieve maximum price for the scrap, analysis for both incoming and outgoing scrap is required. X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) analysis is widely used within the scrap metal sorting and recycling industry to achieve highest efficiency, most consistent product and best price and all this through Non-Destructive Testing.

Scrap metal sorting with handheld XRF analyser

The X-MET7000 Series is a rugged handheld X-ray Fluorescence analyzer for scrap sorting, measuring the key elements in a range of metal alloys including Stainless, Tool and Low Alloy Steels, Nickel, Titanium, Copper, Cobalt and Aluminium alloys.

This is a simple to use technique, which just involves placing the X-MET against the alloy, pulling the trigger and after a few seconds the chemical composition and alloy grade is displayed allowing optimum scrap metal sorting to be performed.

Scrap metal sorting with Optical Emission Spectroscopy (OES)

OES analysers are used for determination of elements such as Carbon, Boron, Sulphur and Phosphorous at ppm level, which are not possible using portable XRF for scrap metal sorting and recycling.
