Metals and alloys

Elemental, phase and residual stress analysis

Foundries, smelters and mills, as well as other aspects of the metals industry, are characterized by having continuous production demanding day and night control of both the process and the quality of incoming and outgoing materials. X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis plays a dominant role in controlling the production processes within these industries. The speed and precision of XRF make it a preferred testing method where high throughput chemical analysis is required to support the production process. In addition to alloy stoichiometry, another important characteristic of metals is residual stress which is correlated with structural failure. X-ray diffraction (XRD) is the only accurate way to measure residual stress non-destructively. XRD offers non-contact measurements with unsurpassed spatial resolution and the ability to measure phases in metals.

Handheld Metal Alloy Analysis

Within seconds, the Rigaku KT-100S handheld metal analyzer easily performs identification of the most difficult alloy grades. The KT-100S analyzer utilizes laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) enabling durable and accurate alloy identification for use in scrap metal sorting, quality assurance in metal fabrication, and positive material identification (PMI) in mission-critical operations, such as aerospace and petrochemical.
