NDT : Alloy Sensor model MB
Thermal Electric Alloy Sorter

Thermal Electric Alloy Sensor model MB

sort metals nondestructively 

Ordinarily difficult to seperate alloya are easily compared by this thermal voltage sensing instrument. Momentary contact your sample with the hot and cold electrodes on the probe for a meter reading characteristic of that metal. Compare the reading to that of a known sample or supplied chart value to complete the test. 
  • Check consistancy in your production
  • Avoid more expensive chemical analysis
  • Save scrapping of unlabled stock
  • Portable and practical

The Alloy Sensor MB measures the thermal voltage developed when metals are electrically connected in a circuit with one hot and one cold junction. The virtual thermocouple, with joint temperatures automatically held, produces a different millivoltage based on the alloy tested and referenced to the hot post alloy.

Parts must be clean and conductive. Trace minor elements and heat treat variations influence the reading and may be the very factor being studied. There are two sensitivity ranges, one for major alloy variations and one for minor.

There is a one mimute initial heatup time for the one second alloy tests. An integrated balance control (rarely used) and initial self-regulation provide very simple operation.

Nicad batteries provide 5 hours of operation with a 12 hour recharge (120 volt, 60 Hz, at 6 watts).

Dimensions: 2.5" H x 5" x 5" (63mm x 127mm x 127mm).

Weight: 2,3 lbs (1 kg).

Made in the USA

Quickshot XRF : Hazardous Substance Detection
Hazardous Substance Detection

QuikShot Hazardous Material Screening Solutions


In recent years Hazardous Substances (HS) such as lead and mercury have received a lot of press for the harm they have caused. In response to this, a number of regulations have been developed to protect children from excessive contact with hazardous substances and limit the amount of heavy metals that are put back into the earth.

These various regulations (RoHS, CPSIA, etc) affect a wide range of industries and have created a demand for fast, on-site screening methods to accurately detect levels of banned substances and x-ray fluorescence has grown into a popular, low-cost, testing solution.

Major hazardous substance regulations include:

The SOLUTION to Lead and Hazardous Substance Regulations?
Handheld XRF Analyzers have become one of the most popular methods of screening product for the regulated metals because the technology provides a cost-effective mobile testing device that is not limited by sample size and can detect levels of banned substances well below the regulated parts-per-million (ppm) levels. The Quickshot XRF handheld system can read down to levels of 10ppm with accuracy. 

Quickshot XRF's handheld system (QSX-HH) provides a cost-effective way for organizations to take control of their compliance testing program . The analyzer limits the need for outside testing resources and allowing for accurate results to be in the palm of your hand.

Among its many features, the major benefit of the QSX-HH is the easy to navigate software package for hazardous substance testing. Real time results are shown on the PDA and can be transferred to a desktop computer for long-term storage, analysis and report generation in Word/Excel.

Precious Metal Testing Applications with XRF Analyzers

X-ray fluorescence was developed as a thickness measurement tool; however, in recent decades the variety of applications that it provides an economical solution for has grown steadily. One use of XRF that has gained substantial interest is its ability to accurately and nondestructively detect precious metals content in a variety of samples.

Gold Content or Full Precious Metal Content
Some very popular desktop instruments for precious metal analysis require Liquid Nitrogen (LN2) to cool their detection systems. However, LN2 is a hassle for the user and an added expense. Because of that, Quickshot XRF has developed our gold tester and precious metal analyzer so that they do not require LN2 but still provide excellent performance. Also, the software packages have been developed specifically for precious metal analysis; making for easy navigation and report generation as required by users that don't have a technical background.

Easy-use precious metal software is best seen in the QSX-295T ; a unit that Quickshot XRF developed to provide full precious metal analysis. The software highlights all the information a user will require on one screen including the measurement time, screen shot of sample, critical instrument data, in-process results and more. The QSX-295T can identify the gold karat in as fast as five seconds and provides the full precious metal content information in 30-300 seconds (user decides).

While the software design makes for ease of use, the QSX-295T detection system allows it to properly separate peaks of all precious metals and provide accurate information on the content of each as required. The
QSX-79T , however, uses a proportional counter detection system, which can not always separate peaks other than gold and because of this, it is most popular for when an organization only needs gold content information .   Both systems provide a color camera system for the easiest sample alingment and sample viewing.

For the points noted above, typically it is refiners or very serious buy-back organizations that prefer the QSX-295T . Locations that are buying back jewelry primarily for the gold content will typically consider the more specialized QSX-79T because of its low cost.

Handheld XRF Helps Expand the Technology…
With the development of portable x-ray fluorescence systems, XRF has grown into a solution for on-site precious metal testing needs. Many recyclers use
portable XRF systems for on-site analysis of scrap materials for accurate precious metal content information and it certainly has a place in mining related testing as the Quickshot XRF handheld system is used by several locations in Africa for the mining of precious metals.

While portable XRF has expanded the industries that use the technology for precious metal content, it is also used by jewelry buy-back companies that travel or buy from a number of locations. Quickshot XRF is one of the few companies that can offer both desktop and portable precious metal analyzers.
