Metal Testing Kit

Suppliers' certifications and importer's promises are not enough. Testing alloy content with undeniable, foolproof, reliable kits from Koslow Scientific provides peace of mind. Order the Stainless Steel Tank Tester  ID Kit and test it yourself! For over 50 years, companies from pharmaceutical to aerospace have relied on Koslow kits. No, need for expensive XRF equipment—no need to file off samples to mail to metallurgical testing labs. A chemical spot test is a diagnostic test performed by the electro-spot method. Verify your stainless steel 316 incoming and outgoing stock.  Use the quality testing solutions ordered by engineers, fabricators, welders, and scrap metal dealers. Sensitive and interference-free chemical color tests detect the alloying components. Color develops due to a chemical reaction; generally, the brightness's intensity can be used to estimate the amount of alloying component present.  Spot tests are more straightforward, faster, and cheaper than chemical analysis. The density of color reactions is correlated to nominal composition.  Spot tests are usually sufficient for alloy identification differentiation and verification. The 1596 Kit includes two metal samples to be used as a testing reference. Working with the 201 and 304 Stainless Steel ID Kit Calibration Standard will vividly demonstrate a positive result.
