Positive Material IdentificationPositive Material Identification (XRF) | Optical Emission Spectrometry (OES)
PMI, the analysis of a metallic alloy to establish composition by reading the quantities by percentage of its constituent elements. Temperature is often the first and easiest-to-find indication of a developing problem and can be quickly used as a screening technique for situations that will benefit from further analysis. A non-contact IR thermometer allows you to stay a safe distance from the object and get the most accurate readings across a wide range of temperatures, thus,the term non contact.
Positive Material Identification Testing needs can help you:
- Rapidly verify alloys in seconds
- Recover lost material traceability
- Isolate finished welds to validatefiller material composition and dilution rates
- Confirm the integrity of process piping, valves, and reaction vessels Pipes,Tubes,Forged bars,Valves,Flanges,Weld seams ,Tanks,Vessels Structural supports,Bolts, rivets, and other fasteners
Handheld X-ray fluorescent (XRF) analyzers have the capability to quantify or qualify nearly any element from Magnesium to Uranium, depending on specific instrument configurations.
Portable XRF spectrometers allow you to take the battery operated analyzer to the sample rather than bringing the sample into the lab. This is especially useful when the test specimen is large or heavy. Contact our applications team to learn how XRF can help solve your material identification needs.
Handheld XRF Industries and applications are very diverse; some examples include:
- Metal Analysis
- Scrap Sorting
- Positive Material Identification
- Mining & Exploration
- Environmental & Soil Screening
- Restricted materials in consumer products
- Art & Archeometry
- Research and Teaching
- More HHXRF applications
