Detection of Chromium in Stainless Steel Tableware by Hand-held Spectrometer


Hand-held spectrometer for the detection of chromium in stainless steel cutlery. Stainless steel utensil containers, such as spoons, spoons, knives, forks, plates, dishes, bowls, cups, pots, etc., gradually enter the home. Stainless steel cutlery is beautiful and durable, but excessive trace elements are also harmful to the human body. Among them, chromium is a heavy metal element. "Hexavalent chromium" is listed as one of the most dangerous chemical substances to the human body and it is one of the internationally recognized carcinogenic metals. Therefore, national standards impose strict limits on chromium indicators. How to detect chromium in stainless steel cutlery?

The harm of chromium in stainless steel tableware

Chromium is involved in the metabolism of sugar and fat in human body and has important physiological functions for human health. It is an essential trace element for the human body. The most common oxidation states of chromium are the +2, +3 and +6 prices. Only trivalent chromium is necessary for the human body. , but excessive intake can also cause harm to the human body. In nature, chromium is the most stable with trivalence. Trivalent chromium is also the most stable form of the organism in the organism, because trivalent chromium easily forms a more stable complex with the ligand.

The toxicity of chromium is related to the existence of the valence state. The toxicity of divalent chromium is very slight. Hexavalent chromium is a strong oxidant and toxic to the human body. It is easily absorbed by the body and accumulates in the body. Trivalent chromium and hexavalent chromium can be transformed into each other. Hexavalent chromium is 100 times more toxic than trivalent chromium.

In clinical practice, the harm of hexavalent chromium and its compounds to the human body is usually manifested in three aspects: First, it damages the skin, causing dermatitis, pharyngitis, etc.; Second, it damages the respiratory system, causing pneumonia, bronchitis, etc.; Third, it damages digestion. System, eating or even long-term exposure to chromate, can easily cause gastritis, gastric ulcers and so on.
