Inexperienced users can identify metals

Elemental analysis of waste metal is key to the determination of its value, so X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysers are commonly employed in the recycling sector.

A simple point-and-shoot method means that even inexperienced users can analyse metals content quickly and easily.

Rental business Ashtead Technology has invested in a selection of the leading XRF equipment so that customers can choose the instrument and mode that suits their application best, said Steve Drake, non-destructive test market manager.

The Niton XL2 (pictured), for example, offers a number of modes for measuring metal content in applications such as general metals, soil metals, metals in mining materials, lead in paint, metals in catalytic converters, plastics or WEEE.

Within each of these modes, the XL2 is able to provide fast, accurate readings for a large number of metals.

Drake added: “The demand for these instruments continues to grow. With the benefit of our in-house training, new users are able to operate safely and provide reliable measurements.”
