Here at JMC Recycling, we have a wide range of cost-effective machinery that can save your scrap yard money, time, and hard work; this includes our range of metal analysers. As financial factors stay at the forefront of our minds, in today’s climate, we want to ensure our scrap yards are profitable, while being cost-effective. In today’s blog, we will be talking about our range of metal analysers, the different types, and what we can offer. 


What is a metal analyser? 

Metal analysers allow you to ‘test’ the scrap you buy so that you know what’s in every load, ensuring that you are paying the right prices. We offer two varieties of easy-to-use handheld metal analysers both of which can be demonstrated on your material, in your own yard, so you can select the right one for you. 


The types of metal analysers: 


Vulcan LIBS metal analyser

The Vulcan LIBS metals analyser is one the fastest metal analysers you will find on the market today. This piece of machinery has one of the most advanced reporting tools for a metal analyser, as well as being a lightweight and balanced handheld Laser IBS (Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy). This analyser is easy-to-use and has a long battery life, to ensure you are able to use it on your scrap yard for a long period of time. The Vulcan has been designed for the rapid identification of a wide range of alloys. 


This metal analyser was manufactured by the Hitachi High-Technologies Group and is available in the UK through us, *McIntyre*. 


X-MET8000 handheld XRF analyser

The X-MET8000 handheld XRF analyser from the Hitachi High-Technologies Group have raised the bar with their latest handheld XRF analyser. This analyser has acute alloy identification, with over 1600 alloys included, it has the most comprehensive set of grade libraries. Similar to the Vulcan, this model is lightweight and easy to use and has an optional shield to prevent damage when detecting small components and sharp objects. 

Storing up to 100,000 results, including spectra and sample images, these images can be shared using Wi-Fi and printed using Bluetooth. The X-MET8000 has a low cost of ownership with superior protection against dust and water, as well as minimising downtime and maximising productivity.
