Re: What is PMI
Dear Chris,

PMI stands for Positive Material Identification. It is increasingly being asked for by customers on products leaving factory of the supplier or in case of receipt from warehouses, through traders etc., at the place of receipt before futher processing. There are several methods for carrying out PMI, including Spectrographic analysis, X-ray Fluorescene Analysis etc.

In case of your specific application, a Vacuum Emission Spectrometer or an Argon Flushed Spectrometer should be the right choice since you need to analyse and demonstrate all elements including Carbon, Phosphorous, Sulphur, Chromium, Nickel etc.

There are agencies providing such services so that we don't need to buy the equipment ourselves.

l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.
