Niton UK Limited

XRF analysis for positive material identification

Positive Material Identification, or PMI, is an integral part of process safety management in many industries including the petroleum refining and petrochemical. Whether the need is quality control, sorting of scrap material, or even failure analysis, materials testing to provide verification of metal alloy grade and composition is crucial to the success of many businesses.

In response to a series of accidents resulting from material mix-ups, many companies have instituted stringent Positive Material Identification programmes. Industry organisations have also worked to develop guidelines to assure that the nominal compositions of all alloy components in a process system are consistent with design specifications.

Since their introduction in 1998, Niton analysers have become the industry choice for Positive Material Identification and material testing. A combination of performance, portability, ease of use, and unparalleled attention to customer needs has made Niton the number one supplier of Positive Material Identification instrumentation. This attention to customer needs is the driving force behind the design of all our instruments.
