Positive  Material  Identification  (PMI)

PMI is an outbreak of technology smashing the old-fashioned lab testing. Any material can be inspected of its material grade and composition instantaneously at site with this portable technology, ranging from metals, light elements, mining and oxide minerals. With an advanced Silicon Drift Detector the results are more accurate than a Silicon Pin Detector, not available with most Service Providers.


We Offer

  • To test ferrous and non-ferrous metallic materials, stainless steels, Monels, Inconel's, Hastelloy's, Aluminum alloys, nickel based alloys, exotic materials

  • While verifying material compliance in power and petrochemical industries

  • To inspect valves and valve components, pipe, fittings, machined parts, castings, forgings, bolts and stock items

  • To inspect welds and weld overlays

  • To verify compliance of new and in-service pressure vessels, plate material, and structural steel.


Hardness  Testing

The hardness test is the most widely used test for evaluating the mechanical properties of metals and other materials. MTL’s team is trained in field hardness testing, producing immediate results without damage to your components. The purpose of the hardness test is to determine the suitability of a material for a given application, conformance to a specification, standard, or particular treatment to which the material has been subjected (heat treatment, thermal process). Our team is expertly trained to perform hardness training for every industry sector including:

  • Off-shore

  • Pipeline

  • Oil & gas

  • Structural

  • Manufacturing

  • Aerospace

  • Agriculture

  • Mining

  • Pulp & paper

  • Nuclear

  • Power generation, and more

Field  Hardness  Testing

Portable hardness testing devices were developed because bringing a stationary Brinell, Rockwell or Vickers tester to the field was impractical. In addition, it is not always practical to cut samples from a component to have hardness testing performed under controlled laboratory conditions.

Why Choose MTL for your Portable Hardness Testing

Highly Qualified Technicians
At MTL, hardness testing is performed by only experienced technicians who are qualified to MTL procedures, industry standards, and client specifications to obtain reliable, precise measurements. There are several variables that affect the accuracy and repeatability of hardness testing performed in the field including:

  • The operator

  • Surface condition

  • Material geometry

  • Material thickness

  • Metallurgy

Each of these variables must be considered when selecting the appropriate test method, and the MTL team has the knowledge and experience to get the job done right.

Immediate, Accurate Results

MTL can provide on-the-spot results followed by the certification of results in a written report. We also interpret and advise on the results. MTL’s responsive turnaround times ensure that we meet our client’s operational schedules and if further analysis is required, we can provide laboratory testing to corroborate findings. Our clients can be assured of rapid, reliable service with accurate results that will help to ensure your products meet the required industry safety and quality standards.

Full-service testing and analysis

MTL is able to follow-up the field hardness testing with a full spectrum of laboratory services including mechanical testing, metallurgical testing, and chemical analysis. Field hardness testing is often performed with metallurgical replication as part of a fitness-for-service analysis or fire investigation. With our in-house team of trained experts, hardness testing process is more streamlined and more cost effective for your team. Hardness testing is a key aspect in quality control programs for new construction projects to ensure the materials are supplied in the required condition....
