This free eight-page brochure describes and illustrates newly introduced XL, PMI, XL PMI+ & XL PMI+ Ultra Positive Materials Identification tools.
The X-ray fluorescence instruments, as part of GE's partnership with Thermo Fisher Scientific, identify and analyze - in seconds - various metal alloys by their chemical composition, through nondestructive methods.
PMI tools are emphasized for "simplicity, accuracy, and reliability" in applications including oil and gas. With one of the lowest levels of detection for silicon, they are cited as "ideal to predict corrosion in existing pipes and fitting in old refineries. A low silicon content reading (<0.1%) of the pipes helps determine when to replace system components before there is an accident."
