Aluminum Scrap Identification

Identify scalpings, briquettes, coils, sheets, sows, ingots, and cladded or sandwiched sheets

Aluminum Analysis and Alloy Identification

The ChemLite™ Laser Metals Analyzer revolutionizes handheld aluminum identification and analysis for scrap, PMI, and QC applications with sensitive quantification like never before. Discover how its safe and intuitive operation empowers your entire team to make fast, reliable measurements and reach new levels of productivity and profitability.

Fast aluminum scrap identification and accurate quantification is now available with the ChemLite Metals Analyzer. Built to be scrapyard tough, but mill accurate, the ChemLite analyzer has the ruggedness demanded in the field, but the kinds of accuracy desired by the lab.

Want high reliability and maximum up-time? Then choose the ChemLite analyzer. It is the only handheld metals analyzer with no moving parts and uses a durable solid-state laser design. Its powerful but eye-safe laser delivers the ultimate accuracy resulting in better distinction of close alloys and confident identification of alloy series. Tramp elements such as Li or Be can be sensed down to 1 ppm. With high accuracy and high precision, trust the ChemLite analyzer to provide you with the right aluminum analysis.

Scrap and scalping identification

Analyze small and irregular samples right in the palm of your hand. No x-ray safety hazard, and no shock hazard. The small sampling tip facilitates precise positioning of the sample to the instrument. Use your own library of alloys to see the closest alloy match for scalped material, and its detailed chemistry. Identify baled, briquetted and scrap turnings.

The ChemLite analyzer can be used on a wide variety of aluminum mill products and scrap metal forms including, but not limited to scalpings, briquettes, coils, sheets, sows, ingots, and even cladded or sandwiched sheets

Wide range of metal alloys

Our metals analysis experts are always adding to the list of aluminum and other alloys factory-loaded in the ChemLite analyzer library. We can work with your to make sure your important alloys are represented. Here is sample of wrought and aluminum cast alloys ChemLite tools can ID:
