Positive material identification (PMI)

We check the chemical composition of materials and alloys using portable devices with the X-ray fluorescence method.

Testing metals using a handheld X-ray spectrometer (XRF) provides insights into the chemical composition of elements without the need to collect samples. The spectrometer features an X-ray lamp emitting radiation that induces metal atom excitation. The measurement result is obtained by calculating the photons (fluorescence) emitted by excited atoms.
