PMI is used to determine the percentage of a number of alloying elements in a material, so that the material can be identified. It can also be used simply to distinguish, for example, SS 304 from SS 316.

The method used is often X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) or Optical Emission Spectrometry (OES).

During the course the safety of working, the principle, the equipment itself, the possibilities and limitations and the use of the equipment in practice will be discussed on the basis of different samples of different materials.

This course can also be given on location, where you can use your own (XRF) equipment.

Course duration:

1 day


This course has no exam so no certificate will be issued. Instead, you will receive a certificate of participation.
