PMI Analysis and Certification Services

pmi testing

ATS offers positive material identification also known as PMI analysis. This service is critical to industries that are required to use high quality materials for manufactured products and components.

Vendor Qualification

The aerospace and nuclear industries are examples of enterprises that are often required to have product certification ensuring critical components are manufactured with the most reliable materials for durability, longevity, and safety.

Failure Analysis

Often during the failure analysis process, it is necessary to positively identify materials used when manufacturing a component. If inferior materials are used, products may fail and cause personal injury or asset losses. To avoid forensic investigation or litigation it is incumbent to verify your materials and/or manufacturing processes.

Improper Material Can Result In:

  • Heat Damage
  • Corrosion
  • Fatigue
  • Operational Failure

ATS’ Positive Material Identification Applications Include:

  • X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF)
  • Optical Emission Spectroscopy (OES)
  • Inductively Couple Plasma (ICP)
  • Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (SEM/EDS)
  • X-Ray Diffraction (XRD)
  • Wet Chemistry
  • Ion Chromatography (IC)
