We have searched in niobium and tungsten for fractionally charged particles with effective nuclear charge Z=N+1/3 (where N=0, 1, 2, 3, …). In addition, we have looked for fractionally charged particles with Z=2/3 and 5/3 in the same materials. No positive signal was observed, and concentration limits are reported.
