This practice describes the sampling of magnesium and magnesium-base alloys to obtain a chill-cast sample suitable for quantitative atomic emission spectrochemical analysis. The disk in the region to be excited is representative of the melt and gives a repeatability of results that approach that of the reference materials used.
This practice describes the procedure for representative sampling of molten metal.
