Abstract : The objective of this program was a laboratory investigation to study and define the operating parameters and basic equipment requirements of an x-ray fluorescence wear metal monitor system. Specifically, the work has defined the controlling factors of the wear metal detection sensitivity for iron, copper, silver and titanium. The safety and regulatory requirements involved in the use of radioactive materials were also examined.
