SciAps - Scrapper X-250 Scarp Metal Identification

The X-250 measures Mg and Si up to 10 times faster than any other X-ray gun, with better sensitivity.  Precise Mg and Si measurements are critical for highly accurate aluminum alloy testing.  The X-250 measures Mg down to 0.25% and Si to 0.15% in 2 seconds, allowing a huge variety of aluminum alloys to now be precisely sorted by X-ray.  And you still maintain the performance advantage of X-ray on other alloying metals like Cr, Cu, Zr, Zn, Mn — the strength of X-ray.  For example Mn precision is essential to sort within the 3000 series like 3105, 3003 and other similar alloys.  The same holds for small differences Cu, Cr and Zr that often differentiates 6000 and 7000 grades.
