POSITIVE MATERIAL IDENTIFICATION (PMI)
PMI Testing enables a component’s material grade or chemical analysis to be found. PMI testing is one of the more specialized non-destructive testing methods. With PMI Testing the alloy composition of materials can be determined. If a material certificate is missing or it is not clear what the composition of a material is, then PMI Testing offers the solution.
PMI Testing is particularly used for high-quality metals like stainless steel and high alloy metals. While engineers push the boundaries of material capacities to their limits in the design, assurance that the proper material is used becomes ever more important.
Using our X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyser we can carry out non-destructive Positive material identification (PMI) to provide highly specific material chemistry to rapidly and accurately identify alloy grades and pure metals.
