For many years, scrap metal reclaimers did not separate the materials containing mercury from other metals. Such things as mercury switches, dental amalgam, thermometers, and refining wastes from copper, gold and silver were processed along with the typical industrial metals. The result is that a significant portion of the Ferrous and non-Ferrous metals and alloys used today contain some metallic mercury.

The impact of mercury vapor toxicity has prompted many organizations, both military and private, to specify certain limits on the amount of mercury that out-gasses from a metal part. The Buck Model 400A Mercury Analyzer interfaced with the Buck Model 4 Mercury Enhancement Accessory can achieve levels as low as 0.01 micro-grams/m3.
