Eddy Current Electrical Conductivity Tester

National Laboratory: 
Sandia National Laboratories
Characterization Class: 
Non-destructive examination

The eddy current electrical conductivity tester offers non-destructive analysis of conductivity (relates to amount of solute content in aluminum).


As the eddy current electrical conductivity tester is not housed within a user facility, scheduling is fairly open. The tester is accessible within the Sandia/California Property Protection Area, so access depends upon meeting requirements for entering the facility and coordinating use with the instrument owner.
