Scrap Metal Sorting | XRF | Grade and Trade | RecyclingScrap metal analysis, sorting and recycling requires fast, accurate, on-site processing. Metals recycling is a multi-billion dollar industry with ferrous and non-ferrous metal scrap being processed into secondary raw material for the smelting of new metals. Millions of tonnes of scrap are processed each year. Sorting scrap metal through testing adds value at all stages of the metal recycling process, from sorting mixed scrap into low value and high value materials, to determining the composition of the scrap that goes into the melts.

To achieve maximum price for the scrap, analysis for both incoming and outgoing scrap is required.
Spent car catalysts can also be tested for precious metals content (rhodium, palladium, platinum) with very little sample preparation, so they can be sold on to refiners.

Whatever your scrap testing needs, Oxford Instruments has the right solution for you: our handheld laser-based (LIBS) analyser sorts alloys in just 1 second, even aluminium alloys! Our latest range of handheld XRFs, the X-MET8000 series, provides fast and accurate alloy ID and chemistry. And when carbon, nitrogen, or very low levels of penalty elements or contaminants need to be measured, our OES spectrometers are the tool of choice.
