PMI SPECIALISTS, INC "WHEN YOU NEED TO KNOW"
Metallurgical Sample Preparation EquipmentsPMI specialists has full range of in-house sample prepareation equipments from cutting saws, cold and hot mounting, automatic polishers to electrochemical etchers.
Zeiss EVO MA-15 Variable Pressure Scanning Electron MicroscopeLarge Chamber: Sample diameter 10 inch x Height 6 inch. Resolution: 3 nm at 30kv HV mode, 5.5 VP mode.
Excellent low voltage imaging capability on sensitive materials.
Three detectors: SE, BSD and VP SE.
The VP SE detector enables imaging on polymer, ceramic, and corrosion products without sputter coating.
Through-Lens Pumping: Analysis of soil and wet samples.
Vapor Pressure:10 Pa – 400 Pa.
Dual Channel Viewing: SE and BSD images on both monitors.
Integral Chamber Scope: Easy sample viewing and switching.
IXRF SDD EDS with 126 ev resolutionSDD (Silicon Drift Detector) requires no liquid nitrogen for cooling.
Capable of detecting elements above Be.
The increase in X-rays allows us to create very fast x-ray maps.
IXRF electronics are optimized to provide true “data streaming” for the fastest x-ray processing possible.
Digital Imaging, X-ray Elemental Mapping, and X-ray Spectra, are all computer controlled though the IXRF software and hardware.
Olympus Optical MicroscopeThe Olympus GX-51 inverted microscope is capable of doing bright field, dark filed and polarization imaging.
The magnification ranges from 50x-1000x.
Pax-it Image Analysis SoftwareThe Pax-it image analysis software is capable of doing:
# Image Stitching
# Image Fusion
# Background Subtraction
# Image Blending
The software also comes with a scripting module, by which you can write your own code or standard for special analysis and perform batch processing of multiple images.
# ASTM Grain Size Analysis
# Plating Thickness
# Particle Count and Distribution
# ASTM Flask Size Classification
The imaging software is equipped with a scripting module.
This allows us to write our own code standard for special analysis.
We can also perform batch processing of multiple images.
StereoscopeMagnification ranges from 7x-180x.
Phase II Rockwell Hardness TesterCapable of doing Rockwell A, B, C, F and G sacle with loading from 60, 100 and 150 kgf.
Digital Microhardness TesterThe automatic digital microhardness is equipped with two indenters (vickers and knoop) with loading ranging from 10 g to 2 kg.
PMI specialists has the most modern industry leading equipment necessary to perform accurate determination of elemental composition of customer samples and the subsequent reporting of the results.
X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) AnalyzersWe own 20 XRF analyzers with SDD detector.
X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) is a non-destructive technique that is used to quantify the elemental composition in samples. X-rays excite atoms in materials, causing them to emit x-rays with energies characteristic of each element present. The intensity and energy of these x-rays are then measured. Through the use of appropriate reference standards, XRF can accurately quantify the elemental composition of both solid and liquid samples.
Optical Emission Spectrometer (OES) AnalyzersWe own 14 OES analyzers.
Optical Emission Spectroscopy excites atoms in a sample.
This is accomplished by a spark formed between sample and electrode. The energy of the spark causes the electrons in the sample to emit light. This is converted into a measurable spectral pattern.
The peaks in this spectrum produce qualitative and quantitative analysis of a huge amount of elements including carbon. OES accurately measures Carbon in alloys down to 0.02 wt% level.
