Applications
TN Technologies?XRF Analyzers are the preferred NDT (non-destructive testing) metals analyzers for the inspection industry for national safety and ISO compliance. Inspection of incoming components, analysis of in-service plant structures and diagnostic failure analysis of components are hallmarks for using the Metallurgist Pro. The Metallurgist Pro is truly portable and can be checked as luggage on an airplane or sent via airfreight to the job site..
Metals Fabrication
Mislabeling due to human error can be prevented with a PMI (Positive Material Identification) program in place as a final check prior to shipping or receiving components. The Metallurgist Pro is also ideal for analyzing the metal fabricator's scrap metal, which when sorted and identified can result in a more accurate assessment of value for negotiating with recycling dealers.
Metals Recycling
The metals recycling industry has grown and matured from artisans assessing material content by looking at the color of a torch flame to the use of sophisticated analytical instrumentation.
The value of potential payloads can be quickly and accurately assessed providing the dealer a base of knowledge for negotiations. Toxic elements such as lead and arsenic can be determined in alloys preventing load rejects from foundry clients. Foundries may require PMI of loads prior to shipment for quality assurance and compliance with ISO 9000 procedures.
