Positive Materials Identification analyzers series unveiled
XL PMI, XL PMI+ & XL PMI+ Ultra positive materials identification tools are announced as part of GE’s partnership
with Thermo Fisher Scientific.
The X-ray fluorescence (XRF) instruments identify and analyze various metal alloys by their chemical composition
through nondestructive methods.
In oil and gas applications, models have one of the lowest levels of detection for silicon. Use is declared “the ideal
way to predict corrosion in existing pipes and fittings in older refineries. A low silicon content reading (<0.1%) of the
pipes helps determine when to replace system components before there is an accident.”
One important analyzer feature is the ability to inspect assets at point-of-use — without disassembling complex systems
— sending parts out. You get quick and accurate identification of stainless steels, Cr-Mo steels including V stabilized versions,
low alloy steels, tool steels, nickel alloys, copper alloys, titanium alloys, aluminum alloys, or such exotics as zirconium and
PMI XRF designs are environmentally sealed for use in wet, dirty, dusty field conditions. Their one-step system check requires no external accessories. Advanced batteries support up to 10 hr of continuous use on a single charge.
Bluetooth wireless and USB communications interfaces are incorporated. These allow you to set permissions, print certificates of analysis, or operate the analyzer from a separate workstation.
NDT methods on which the new analyzers operate deliver fast, accurate materials analysis for confident decision making,
declares the manufacturer. The library of more than 400 alloy grades, coupled with NDT methods provides outstanding grade

technologies include scavengers and customized
treatment systems to process large amounts of contaminated gas. Specially
formulated scavengers are
cited to selectively remove
impurities in either dry or
streams. The solutions are
emphasized as safe for effective elimination of impurities.

Free oil and gas steam solutions, products guide
This 64-page Steam Solutions
for Oil & Petrochemical Guide
is yours free for the asking.
14 chapters address how to
reduce emissions, improve energy efficiency, and reduce water consumption. Experience
in utilizing and re-energizing
flash steam is emphasized for
use at higher pressure. This
enables a reduction in steam
vented to atmosphere.
thermostatic, inverted bucket,
balanced pressure thermostatic, and ball float mechanical steam traps are illustrated,
described and specified.
Steam trapping is defined
and diagrammed throughout
the literature. This company’s
STAPS wireless steam trap
monitoring is also presented.
Guide chapters present condensate recovery pumps, ball
float liquid drainers, pipeline
ancillaries, tracing trap manifolds, steam conditioning desuperheaters, air eliminators, liquid level controls, and pneumatic instruments.
