Positive Material Identification
Rotech is now offering customers a new PMI XRF service, which will enable our trained and experienced technicians to carry out PMI testing either on-site around the UK, or in-house at our laboratory in the heart of the West Midlands.
Positive Material Identification testing (PMI testing) using XRF (X-Ray Fluorescence) is a method that delivers fast and accurate results for all material identification needs. Our portable hand-held XRF analyser can identify a wide range of materials, including Stainless and Duplex Steels, Tungsten and Vanadium Steels, Copper, Nickel and Aluminium Alloys, plus a variety of other metallic alloys.
PMI is important at every step of the process - from the warehouse to finished parts.
Rotech’s new services include:
- PMI XRF testing services (on-site around the UK, or at our laboratory).
- Facility for same day reporting.
- Competitive rates.
- Advice from our fully trained and experienced technicians.
Mixed material, stamping of the wrong grade, lost the paperwork or having the wrong paperwork are all scenarios that have happened and continue to happen in the metals industry. These are the circumstances that make it necessary for PMI to be performed at multiple stages of delivery and processing.
A Handheld XRF PMI gun can analyse, identify and display grade and composition of a material in seconds without creating any marks on the material or destroying the sample in any way.
For optimal efficiency and safety, a PMI program ensures that every part installed meets the specification required to stand up to the demands of the working environment.
