Help with Positive Metal Identification

Could someone explain the process and available equipment for PMI. If manufacturers of such equipment that can be used for this test are known, it would be most appreciated if we can get a link.
Many thanks.

Re: Help with Positive Metal Identification
Positive Material Testing (PMI) There are many different vendors that provide the equipment that you seek. It would be helpful to understand what you are trying to measure. If you are looking for carbon content you need to use a "spark" tester. The two types of equipment I am familiar with that provides the carbon measurement is SpectroPort and Metorex. Both systems are quite popular. If you are wanting to quickly measure other properties and are not concerned with carbon, then the NITON system is probably what you are after. The Niton handheld PMI system uses a source(s). Now depending on what you are looking for specifically, you may want to explore which single or dual source is best suited for you. Niton also sells an X-ray type PMI system. Again you need to determine what you want the instrument to be capable of. There is not one instrument that "does it all". You need to know what the bulk of your testing will consist of. Note: Sources decay and will require replacement. X-ray tubes alsoonly have a certain lifespan. Hope this helps you.
