RPV Invests in PMI Niton Analyser

RPV’s test house continues to expand
Suffolk based valve stockist and distributor RPV, has further expanded its range of testing capabilities. The company’s test house now includes a PMI Niton Analyser to aide with the inspection and verification of the materials of the products in stock. The expansion follows the significant investment in the RPV’s test house facilities to include cryogenic testing to a temperature of -196°C, as announced in Valve User 26.

The PMI Niton Analyser is used to determine the positive material identification (PMI) of ferrous metals, nonferrous metal alloys and cobalt based material. RPV have invested in specialist training for six members of staff to operate the testing gun.

Steven Withers, RPV’s QA / QC Director, is pleased to unveil this new capability and the associated reduction in lead times for customers.

‘We are delighted to further add to our testing capabilities. By bringing this service in house we can reduce the lead times for customers who require PMI testing. The work will be carried out under our PED certification, giving us full quality control.’

Testing, using the gun’s built in x-ray tube, is underway at the RPV test house now. Enquiries can be made through RPV’s sales team.
