Several qualitative, semiquantitative, and quantitative tests are available to estimate and control metal cleanliness, particularly inclusion concentration of aluminum alloys. This article provides a brief description of few of the metal cleanliness assessment techniques, such as chemical analysis, pressure filter tests, electric resistivity tests, reduced-pressure test, and ultrasonic technique. It also lists the various impurities detection methods of chemical analysis and their limitations.
