Positive Material Identification (PMI)

Positive Material Identification (PMI)

 

Another value added service now available. Cogne UK Limited is pleased to announce that 100% anti-mixing is now available to customers' specifications or needs.

For petroleum and petrochemical refining facilities, the emphasis on safety and accident prevention has never been greater. This means that Positive Material Identification (PMI) in materials used throughout the industry is becoming a requirement that is no longer a choice, but a necessity. Simply relying on spot testing of parts is too risky and totally unacceptable. Today's best practices include 100% positive material testing of all critical materials.

To do this we have utilized the latest technology, using NITON® X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) hand-held alloy analyzer to perform the analysis. In using XRF, we can make Positive Material Identification to Customer requirements or specification needs. Cogne UK has implemented an internal procedure for the PMI by XRF of raw materials from which data can be downloaded from the unit and saved for reference or used to create a certificate using the unit's software to accompany the original material documentation.
