An Industry Leader in Providing Accurate Mobile Metallurgical Analysis, PMI Specialists, a Feature of "Industry Today" on

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - Feb 13, 2012) - Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) will host special guest PMI Specialists Incorporated (Baytown, Texas) as part of this week's "Industry Today" webcast. Founded in 1992, PMI Specialists provides on-site alloy verification and accurate test methods for many industries, including petrochemical, petroleum refining, power generation, materials distribution, manufacturing and fabrication, and many more. PMI is an industry acronym that stands for Positive Material Identification, also known as alloy analysis, which is the analysis of materials by their elemental composition. PMI Specialists serves its clients with only the most dependable on-site alloy verification and accurate testing methods available, backed by ISO 9000 certification and a certified laboratory (ILAP).

An alloy analysis ensures engineers, metallurgical engineers, and plant and project owners that they are getting what they expect from certain products or materials. Ensuring the correct selection of materials in a plant process helps to guard against accidents in the plant, which can translate into lost dollars, safety concerns or even lost lives.

The equipment and technology employed by PMI Specialists provides asset owners a chemical composition of their materials, including the percentage of chrome and nickel, and the related chemistry to verify that these assets meet the desired specifications for certain applications or expectations. In addition to these PMI-related services, PMI Specialists also provides a host of other metallurgical services including the measurement of ferrite in stainless steel welds, mobile hardness testing, copper sulfate testing, grading of carbon steels and many other very comprehensive material verification and testing methods.

In today's litigation-prone society, knowing the chemistry of the materials in your process is of paramount importance to avoid unknown liabilities or defend against claims of poorly performing materials in the event of an accident. Catching a defective piece of equipment in advance of a failure not only increases safety and reliability, but also aids in preventing very costly unplanned outages and shutdowns. The experts at PMI Specialists are equipped with classroom training, industry experience, plus database and technology tools that help them stay on the leading edge of material identification and reporting.
