Positive Material Inspection (PMI)

Positive Material Inspection (PMI) is a well-established analytical materials testing and materials identification technique used throughout industrial plants as well as within the metal assembly and component manufacturing industries.

A downside in materials technology is the potential for error, incorrect identification or installation of out-of-specification metal alloys. In the petrochemical, power generation and similar industries the prospect of such a miscalculation are inconceivable.

ITCL offers a Positive Material Inspection using an XRF hand-held scanner which will:

  • Positively analyse all metal alloys
  • Identity and arrange for scrap metal for recycling
  • Provide quality control within the manufacturing environment

In addition, Positive Material Inspection analysis can be obtained in the following:

  • Soils and sediments
  • Monitoring of lead levels in paint
  • Geochemical mapping
  • Coating / plating analysis
  • Environmental monitoring
  • Materials covered by Restriction of Hazardous
  • Substances legislation
  • Items covered by waste from electrical and electronic equipment


We pride ourselves on the high quality of application and testing by our experienced technicians. Our workforce is fully qualified to current standards and work to approved procedures and control checks. Environmental and health & safety issues are of paramount concern to all staff working on your site, with expert consultation always available.

ITCL offers a comprehensive 24hr in-house and on-site service.
