ID, Analysis, & Lab Testing
Positive Material Identification (PMI)
A simple, yet important service that Rolled Alloys offers is positive material identification (PMI) using an x-ray spectrometer (XRF). Every Rolled Alloys stocking facility has a hand held analyzer to verify quality and accuracy of material shipped. We have also used these analyzers for identifying material that has been in service.
This can help you confirm materials for reconstruction or even justifying alloy scrap credits.
Rolled Alloys employs a group of applications engineers who work directly with fabricators, engineering companies and end users to decide which material is best suited for each application. Often times, this decision starts with a previously failed piece of equipment. With polishing equipment, digital microscopes and full failure analysis reports, Rolled Alloys can assist you in determining modes of failure and even data on other alloy options to increase life expectancy and minimize costs. Please contact a metallurgist if you need a full analysis.
Rolled Alloys has even done material testing and design to develop custom ZERON 100 (UNS S32760) forgings for subsea applications as well as corrosion and fatigue testing of high strength ZERON 100 (UNS S32760) slickline used in offshore oil and gas drilling.
