Initialization is used to adjust the peak value to 0. It is the same as the scale. When we use the scale, we need to adjust to 0 first, then we can weigh any weight of the goods. Since each element has its signature, each spectrum will show a different position on the X-axis of the software. So we need to fix the reference spectrum to 0, then the spectral position of the other elements will be fixed. Here, we set the Au spectrum to 0. Then the software will know where the Cu spectrum is and where the Ag spectrum is, and so on.
Initialization is a process of automatically adjusting the Au peak value to zero. If the Au peak is not 0, the machine will display an incorrect report.

    Chapter 1:

    The Necessity of Choosing the Correct Gold Testing Machine

    gold testing machine

    You need a professional gold gold testing machine so that you will be able to test gold purity and also identify impure gold.

    Because if you fail to do so, you and your jewelry business will face some of the problems described in Chapter One. Some of these problems include:

    • Loss of money: The money you spent on buying impure gold is nothing but a waste.
    • Bad business image:Selling counterfeit gold coins or jewelry to your customers will ruin your business reputation once your customers discovered that you have been deceiving them with impure gold products.
    • Poor-quality gold products: Since they are made of counterfeit gold, your jewelry will not pass most of the standardized quality tests.
    • Color issues:Some other precious metals used instead of genuine gold in counterfeit gold jewelry do not possess similar shining color of gold. Even though some of them may shine brightly at first, but they will soon lose their sheen because they are not durable—they cannot stand the stress and pressure that the genuine gold can withstand.

    If you are very careful about saving your business, you will do everything you can to have a professional gold analyzer and save yourself and business from irredeemable destruction that may arise by mistakenly selling impure gold products to your customers.

    If you need some simple methods to identify fake gold, click here to see some simple ways to test fake gold

    1.1, Do You Really Know That Precious Metals are Real?

    Now that there are more and more kinds of gold jewelry and other precious metal products on the market, it is no longer possible to know their authenticity, purity, content, etc. by simple observation and touch. Therefore, professional experimental methods or instruments must be used to achieve accurate evaluation.

    So what are the ways to verify gold now?

    Fire Assay

    Fire assay is a method used to determine the purity and content of precious metals, such as gold and silver. It involves the use of high temperatures to melt and separate the metal from the ore or sample being tested.

    People have been using this technique since the ancient times. Using Fire assay, you will evaluate the gold content in a sample by melting it in a furnace.

    You will need to carefully measure its weight all along the process. The molten gold is then poured into a kind of crucible known as a cupel. This will be further heated to allow other impure metals to leave the crucible, leaving the gold alone.

    You will then need to cool down the remaining gold and weigh it to determine the amount of the sample which is actually gold.


    If you use this technique, you can obtain clear results that differential a pure gold material from a fake one. Smelting, as you know, indicates that you will need to melt an ore or alloy of various elements in order to separate the base elements or metals of interest from the other constituents of the alloy.

    You can carry out the smelting using a machine such as Superbmelt gold melting equipment that supplies very high heat which is hot enough to melt the ore or alloy. After smelting the ore or alloy of the material to be tested, you can prove the originality of gold it melts out first.

    Other metals such as copper and zinc with different melting temperatures or points will melt later, and this can indicate the availability of impure gold.

    X-RAY Fluorescence

    Out of all the different types of advanced methods of identifying impure and pure gold, XRF is the most complicated but the easiest to operate.

    XRF technology works by emitting a beam of X-ray photons, which then strike sample atoms. The two interact, and electrons of different elements release different amounts of energy to analyze their elements.

    You can easily spot a counterfeit gold material because they will definitely give off different amounts of energy, revealing their counterfeiting nature. XRF technique is fast he doesn’t need to damage the metal, at the same time the XRF spectrometer is highly portable.

    1.2, Benefits of SuperbMelt Gold Testing Machine

    Some of the great benefits of using Superbmelt gold analyzer are that it gives users:


    XRF gold testers are highly accurate and provide precise readings of the purity and composition of the metal being tested.Superbmelt gold testing machine have accuracy in  0.03-0.1%, and the accuracy can be selected according to the application requirements.


    XRF gold testing machine are non-destructive, meaning that they do not damage or alter the piece of metal being tested. This is particularly important for jewelry, where the integrity and value of the piece may be affected if it is damaged during testing.


    XRF gold testers provide fast and efficient results, allowing for quick and easy analysis of multiple items in a short amount of time.The measurement time of our gold detector is 3-120 seconds, which can meet the simple verification requirements in a short time, and the longer detection time can also display all the metals contained in the metal sample at the same time.


    We have developed a hand-held gold meter specially for outdoor and gold buyers, etc. The machine is compact and portable. XRF gold testers are relatively small and portable, making them easy to transport and use in a variety of settings.


    Compared with other traditional gold detection equipment, the price of the xrf gold testing machine may be relatively high, but for long-term use, it is the most cost-effective, and it can well solve the gold authenticity and purity detection in most industries. And it does not need to buy too many expensive accessories and chemical reagents, it can be put into work directly after assembly, which is simple and convenient.


    In addition to the most basic gold detection, we can realize the detection of 5-80 kinds of elements, which can be applied to most precious metal industries, such as jewelry, precious metal laboratories, banks, precious metal refining industries, etc. XRF gold testers can be used to test a variety of precious metals, including gold, silver, platinum, and palladium.

    1.3, Comparison between SuperbMelt Gold Testing Machine and Fire Test

    When compared with fire assay, the Superbmelt XRF Analyzer comes with some advantages over this method.

    Let’s see what’s the difference between these two methods:


    XRF testing is a non-destructive analytical technique that uses X-rays to determine the elemental composition of a material, including gold. Fire assay, on the other hand, is a destructive method that involves melting the gold sample and separating the precious metals from impurities.


    XRF testing is typically faster than fire assay. XRF can provide results within seconds, whereas fire assay can take several hours or even days.


    XRF testing is usually less expensive than fire assay because it requires less equipment and fewer chemicals. Fire assay is a more complex and time-consuming process that requires a range of specialized equipment and chemicals.

    Sample Size

    XRF testing requires a small sample size, usually less than a gram, whereas fire assay requires a larger sample size, typically between 10 and 50 grams.


    Fire assay gold is more suitable for refineries, ore purification and metallurgical industries, where precious metals are separated from other components by smelting.

    This also determines that it is smart to work in a fixed scene. The xrf gold testing machine is easy to transport and can realize changes in usage scenarios. It is more suitable for some gold buyers and the jewelry industry.

    Chapter 2:

    What Are the Gold Testing Machines in the Market?

    There are different types of gold analyzers in the market. They range from the acid gold-testing kits to portable gold-testers and sophisticated gold-testing equipment. It is important to state that each tester has its own usefulness or capabilities. However, at the industrial or commercial level, sophisticated gold-testing tools or equipment like gold spectrometer and XRF gold analyzer are utilized.

    2.1, Gold Spectrometer

    Gold spectrometer comes in different forms and they carry out different functions. As a matter of fact, there are two distinct types of spectrometers that can be used to identify whether a certain piece of gold is genuine or fake. These include:

    Optical Spectrometer

    This spectrometer reveals the intensity of light as a function of wavelength or frequency. When a ray of light passes through a noble metal, for example, it emerges as a spectrum (band) of lights or lines that can be studied to reveal the actual composition of that particular metal.So, if a ray of light passes through a genuine piece of gold, it produces some distinct lines that are different from when the same ray passes through a fake piece of gold. In the case of fake gold, its components will produce a band of lines that are obviously different from those obtainable from the real gold. Gold Tester Gun

    Mass Spectrometer

    This kind of spectrometer estimates the amount of certain substance in a mixture (compound) using the concept of mass-to-charge ratio and the quantity of the gas-phase ions. In other words, it is a fact that even pure gold consists of gold and other noble elements in small proportions.And fake gold, on the other hand, has very little amount of gold but containing large amounts of other metals. So, using a mass spectrometer, it is possible to estimate the percentage (amount) of purity a piece of gold is.There are two types of mass spectrometer: You can either choose to use a magnetic spectrometer or a time-of-flight spectrometer. The principle behind a magnetic spectrometer is that when a charged particle (a piece of gold, genuine or fake) passes through a constant magnetic field at right angles, it moves in a circle based on its charged property and mass. Real gold will produce different circular path of radius from fake gold. Gold Purity Testing Machine

    2.2, XRF Gold Analyzer

    XRF gold testing machine is a very popular tool for analyzing gold purity within a short period of it. Over the years its precision and reliability has increased. Today, you can even use XRF Gold Analyzer to determine the Karat of your gold. The good news is that such an analysis can be completed between 3 and 10 seconds. There are different kinds of XRF Gold Analyzers, but the most common one is the handheld XRF Gold Tester. You need a handheld XRF Gold Analyzer if you are a gold refiner, recycler, or analytical assay researcher. As the amount of fake gold objects that are flooding the market increases, it becomes imperative that gold storeowners and pawnshop owners invest in buying an XRF Gold Analyzer. Here are some benefits you can derive from using this very useful tool (XRF Gold Analyzer):
    • It provides 100 percent non-destructive analysis, in the sense that it will not affect the quality of the gold during analysis
    • It is portable and can be easily conveyed from one location to another
    • It is fast and accurate—you can obtain the analysis results in as little as 5 seconds
    • It doesn’t require elaborate trainings before you can use it
    It can be used to detect pure gold in all types of gold compounds (substances), such as gold jewelry, gold bars, gold pins, gold ore, gold plating, alloys with gold content, gold nuggets, and yellow, white, and rose gold

    2.3, Comparisons of these gold analyzers

    There are many kinds of gold measuring equipment on the market, and you need to know roughly each one, such as gold measuring kit (chemical method), hand-held gold measuring instrument, and desktop gold measuring instrument. The desktop gold measuring instruments are placed on the desks and can be operated manually or with an automation. The table below shows the comparisons between the three forms of gold-measuring equipment:
    Feature Chemical method Handheld gold measuring instrument Desktop gold measuring instrument
    Location In the lab Portable On the desk
    Safety Partially safe Less safe Safe (and fixed)
    Training Requires substantial training Requires simple training Requires substantial training
