Metal analyser: High performance at a low price

Metal analyser: High performance at a low price

  • We consistently do without PDA
  • colour display fixed ergonomically
  • Ag-tube
  • SDD detector and analysis of light elements
  • data are encrypted and can not be manipulated subsequently
  • identifies “light elements” (Mg, Al, Si, P, S, Cl)

Areas of application

This metal analyser is at home when recycling metal and with PMI (positive material identification). The instrument also offers fast and inexpensive safety when it comes to the recycling of catalytic converters.

Typical materials:

  • chrome steels, stainless steels, NCT
  • chrome-molybdenum steels
  • low-alloy steels
  • tool steels
  • nickel-, cobalt-based alloys
  • copper, brass, bronze alloys
  • titanium and aluminium alloys (incl. Mg, Al, Si)
  • precious metals (jewellery alloys)
  • platinum group elements in catalytic converters
