Stainless Steel Inspector's Kit (1499) sorts 5 elements


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.

  • QC inspection approved
  • Portable -uses the popular Electro-Spot Method
  • Easy; and only 20 seconds per test.
  • Non-destructive NDT
  • Most Economical Choice

Supplies for hundreds of tests


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 all 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 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 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.

Here are a few popular applications of the 1499:

* 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 which 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

Good product
by Nandha Kumar, Oct 16,2017

Nicely packed.
Kit arrived our facility as expected.
Test instruction were clear.
Test were differentiated with reaction times, current etc to have precise results.
I will prefer this product and recommend this product to others.
Customer support is good.
I would like Koslow to develop the kit to identify SS304 or some other tests like nickel test that can be taken into consideration for verification of SS304 with existing SS kit 1499.
