Positive Material Identification

PMIT testing of ferrous and non ferrous materials using handheld portable PMI equipment.
Positive Material Identification (PMI) is one of the more specialised non destructive testing methods. With positive material identification the alloy composition of materials can be determined. If a material certificate is missing or it is not clear what the composition of a material is, then PMI offers the solution. Because specifications for materials used in industry are increasingly more specific, the need for PMI testing has been on an increase for the past several years. Periodic plant maintenance shutdowns are less frequent and consequently the materials used in the plant are in use longer. A wider variety of alloys that are indistinguishable to the eye are being used in process plants. When facility and inspection staff replace components, they must be able to guarantee that the new part matches required specifications. Recent industrial accidents have cost the lives of workers and heightened the the awareness of the need for accurate and comprehensive PMI inspections.
Today, many major oil companies require that every pipe, flange, connector, valve and welding seam in critical parts of the plant be measured to verify that materials match engineering specifications. In addition to compatibility issues, several other reasons can exist for material specification including design, corrosion resistance, and compliance to codes and standards such as ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code. It also finds applications in the following areas :-Aerospace Manufacturing • Aerospace Castings • Aerospace Fastener QA / QC • Failure AnalysisPharmaceutical Manufacturing • Component Validation • Installation Qualification (IQ) • Operational Qualification (OQ)Electric Power Industry • Plant Inspection • Failure Analysis PMI • Incoming Materials • In Stock Materials • In service Testing

At ITE, we use best in class equipment for carrying out Positive Material Identification popularly known as PMI testing at customers facility or our lab. Recently Bruker's S1 Titan has been purchased by us which gives us edge over the competition due to its portability and ease with which the reports are generated. It has got pen drive access due to which reports can be handed over to the customer just after inspection. This saves a huge amount of time for us and for the customer by avoiding delays in sending the report from the base office.

Positive Material Identification (PMI) testing is used for doing a chemical analysis and grade confirmation of ferrous and non-ferrous items on site or in the lab. The equipment is a handheld XRF based device which uses X-Ray Fluorescence to determine the elemental composition of the material under consideration.

The main applications are:- Material sorting; grade confirmation; scrap inspection; pre-dispatch inspection; determination of contents of hazardous elements like lead, tin, arsenic, etc.
