Positive Material Identification (PMI)

Positive Material Identification

Positive Material Identification (PMI) is the analysis of a metallic alloy to establish composition by reading the percentage quantities of its constituent elements. The object of this nondestructive testing method is to identify metal alloys in place using a portable X-Ray fluorescent analyzer that determines the elemental composition of the material. PMI is rapidly emerging as an integral part of process safety management and quality control in many industries such as electric power generation, construction, manufacturing, chemical processing, oil refineries and petrochemical plants. Using modern, hand-held
