The new measure of speed and productivity for PMI testing

Now with improved light element performance

For refineries, power plants, and petrochemical complexes, positive material identification (PMI) plays a critical role in ensuring process integrity — as well as facility and personnel safety. Use of the wrong alloy or an off-spec grade of stainless steel can lead to failures caused by flow-accelerated corrosion (FAC), sulfidation corrosion, or other threats to pipes, valves, or welds. Operators must inspect huge volumes of structural materials from a wide range of suppliers with speed and precision. Fortunately, the SPECTRO xSORT provides an ideal solution for these productivity challenges.

It’s FAST! Get the answers you need in seconds.

The SPECTRO xSORT Alloy model delivers grade identification in seconds. With the even more powerful xSORT AlloyPlus, most alloys can be analyzed in 2 seconds. Now, it delivers metal grade identification for most alloys containing difficult light elements such as aluminum, magnesium, silicon, phosphorus, and sulfur in only 7 seconds! Plant personnel or service contractors may complete hundreds of inspections per shift for enhanced productivity and profitability

It’s EASY: Any metal, any alloy, any time!

With SPECTRO xSORT, operators don’t have to switch methods between samples. Its compact, one-piece 1.64 kg (3.62 lb) design is optimized for easy use in the field, even in less accessible or tight spots.
