Positive Material Identification

Positive Material Identification (PMI) is a widely used practice employed throughout industrial plants as well as within the metal assembly and component manufacturing industries to identify and guarantee a material's elemental composition as required for safety compliance and quality control. In particular, PMI is utilized for rapid verification of alloys used in critical process components, quality control of pipes, valves, and reaction vessels materials, accurate determination of light elements and trace and tramp elements. It also employed for inspection of incoming alloy materials and components before they enter production, rapid verification of alloys used in the manufacturing process, and product material confirmation before shipment.

The new ChemLite™ Laser Metals Analyzer is a sophisticated handheld instrument that easily serves the needs of the many PMI-related applications, anywhere and at anytime. In fact it more accurately measures the chemistry of a wider variety of in-demand metals, including light metals and alloys, in as little as one second to help  quickly validate inputs, confidently give downstream customers the on-spec product performance they demand, and conduct positive material identification of metal alloys that will be used in industry-critical operations. 



Positive Material Identification ensures that the materials used in your operation are what they need to be in terms of their chemical composition in order to conform with quality control or regulatory and safety requirements demanded in the industry.  Until today, inaccurate and time-consuming chemical ID methods, especially of light alloys, only made the job more difficult.   Now, with the  new ChemLite™ Laser Metals Analyzer, trust your operation to a better tool specifically designed  to make comprehensive metal chemistry readings with point-and-shoot convenience  in such a demanding setting.
