These high standards extend to our tolling practices as well. In fact,
Ritchey Metals has earned a reputation as one of the best converters in
the business, yielding recovery rates of up to 94 percent.

We are not satisfied with mere excellence in any aspect of our
operation. To direct us in ongoing improvement, we have
implemented a formal quality management system. Our
effort has been well worth the investment. The Ritchey Metals
team is proud that we uphold the strict requirements of being
registered to the ISO 9001 standard.

Our Spectrochemical Analysis Instruments Include:

  • ARL Model 2460 Optical Emission Spectrometer
  • Labtest Model 310 Optical Emission Spectrometer
  • WAS Foundrymaster Optical Emission Spectrometer

These instruments provide for rapid and accurate chemical
analysis. The spectrometers are multifunctional, which provides
us with backup capability, so there is no delay in analysis if
one instrument is being serviced. We verify our results with
independent laboratories on a periodic basis and maintain a large
set of certified reference standards. This gives us the
capability to perform accurate and traceable analysis of almost
any zinc, aluminum, or tin based alloys.
