Positive Material Identification (PMI)

Positive Material Identification provides alloy chemistry and grading of materials against UNS and ASME material codes. PMI enables a components material grade to be determined and is one of the more specialised methods of Non-destructive-testing. If material certificates have been lost, then PMI is the solution.

At Format NDT Ltd, we use the X-MET 5000 XRF Analyser, the X-MET5000 allows easy editing of the grade libraries, including the addition of new alloys and naming of the alloys. It has an integrated grade library containing:

  • Nickel Alloys
  • Stainless Steels
  • Cobalt Alloys
  • Low Alloy Steel
  • Tool Steels
  • Copper Alloys
  • Titanium Alloys
  • Zirconium Alloys
  • Aluminium Alloys (heavy alloying elements)
