Standard Practice for Electromagnetic (Eddy Current) Sorting of Nonferrous Metals
|Standards number:||ASTM E0703-20|
|Keywords:||encircling coils; electromagnetic sorting; nonferrous metals; probe coils; sorting ;|
1.1 This practice describes a procedure for sorting nonferrous metals using the electromagnetic (eddy current) method. The procedure is intended for use with instruments using absolute or comparator-type coils for distinguishing variations in mass, shape, conductivity, and other variables such as alloy, heat treatment, or hardness that may be closely correlated with the electrical properties of the material. Selection of samples to evaluate sorting feasibility and to establish standards is also described.
1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.3 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
