Smith Valve has the capabilities to perform Positive Material identification in house, utilizing the ARC-MET8000 analyzer.
Optical Emission analyzer designed to identify all the key elements in metals - especially where highest accuracy and/or the analysis of light elements like C, Al, S, P, Mg, Si is needed and when sorting low alloys and aluminum. Ideal, for example, for separation of 316 H (>0.04% C) and 316 L (<0.03% C).
Production Cycle Applications
Use one unit throughout the whole production cycle including:
Carbon Analysis of Steels
Recognizing that carbon analysis in steels is of primary concern in many material verification functions, and e.g. in welding work, ARC-MET8000 has the unique capability of measuring carbon in both air and argon modes.
