Includes Tests For: Stainless Steel 316 AND 304, Common Steels, Nickel Alloys
Inspect tanks, pipes, raw stock, finished parts, and more! Confirm Stainless Steels and Nickel Alloys such as SS 316 vs. SS 304 stainless steel. Identify Inconel and Monel and other Common Steels
Some of the many metals that can be identified:
(302, 304), (309, 310), (316, 317), 316L, (414, 431), (400 Series), (Monel), (Nickel Silvers), Inconel 600, Inconel 625, Inconel 750, Incoloy 825, Carpenter 20Cb3, (Incoloy 800 Series), Crucible 26-1, Hastelloy 8, Hastelloy C, Hastelloy X, and many others. Alloys in brackets are indistinguishable from each other, but can be distinguished from the other alloys in this list.

Is this the stainless steel that it's supposed to be? Can I conduct the same quality assurance inspections that my customers use? Can I assume foreign imports are what they claim to be? Is my stock labeled correctly? Inspect it yourself!
Maintaining the quality your customers demand doesn't require a fancy or expensive program. Use the spot test kits that have been specified by major companies worldwide to inspect your incoming and outgoing parts and materials. Pharmaceutical & food, aerospace, marine, and medical industries rely on KOSLOW kits for fast, conclusive results.
How can alloy inspection be so easy? Color spot tests isolate and identify the single distinguishing element that separates the alloy you want from the one you don't. No need to file off samples and mail them to a lab. Nickel, chrome, molybdenum, copper, and iron are all easily detectable with the 1499. It's simple. First, check the chart of alloy compositions. Then consult the instruction manual for the ElectroSpot II procedure. Finally, look for a color test spot revealing the element. You've answered your alloy concerns with confidence, and at a low cost without the use of isotopes and x-ray.
* Sort 316 stainless from 304 with just a simple test for moly (molybdenum)
* Pull stock rod SS400 from a pile of SS300 with a one-minute test for nickel.
* Verify an alloy such as Monel by getting a positive test for nickel and copper.
The kit includes a stamped metal reference standard as well as an excellent variable current source, the ElectroSpot II. It features a built-in auto-timer, the only one of its kind, helpful for differentiating similar alloys by keeping accurate sampling times. Finally, the kit is neatly packaged in a durable heavy-duty, shock-resistant carrying case.
Accessorize your Inspectors Kit by working side by side with the Metal Samples Collection 1900. This set of 24 coupon samples is an excellent tool for running spot checks on unmarked, unfamiliar metals.
The Inspectors Kit No.1499 is a mid-range kit that tests for 5 elements. For a broader range of testing, including tests for tool steels and the SS 200 series, see our Steel Alloy Testing Pro No. 1599.
