Positive Material Identification (PMI)

Positive Material Identification (PMI) can identify metal alloys based on their chemical composition using a handheld tube-based analyzerPMI can be used to ensure that the parent material in vessels and pipe spools is composed of the correct composition (i.e., 304 or 316L) and once the component is welded that the correct filler material was used.  X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) is a solution for quick and accurate alloy verification needs. Deploying hand-held X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) is a relatively low-cost, portable solution.
