  • Analysis of precious metals in jewelry

    Abstract For thousands of years, man learned the craft of making jewelry from gold. Gold is a noble metal which does not react with the air and has a shiny yellow color.Over the years, alloying of the gold was necessary to improve its properties since pure gold is too soft to be used for jewelry. Alloying of the gold is usually by low-cost metals such as copper, zinc, silver or nickel. ...

  • Ferrous Wear Metal Measurement Made Easy with the FerroCheck

    Historically, one of the most cost-effective indicators of machinery health has been the analysis of ferrous debris in oil. Such analysis utilizes the ferromagnetic properties of generated debris to perform the analysis. Since nearly all wear debris contains ferrous material (in particular iron), an abnormal increase in the amount of debris can be directly correlated to abnormal machinery ...
