There have been a handful of truly revolutionary inventions throughout history.

Fire. The wheel. Electricity. Donuts. The handheld XRF.  No, I’m not overexaggerating!

In all reality, the handheld XRF really has done a lot for positive material identification (PMI). That’s why I feel it’s important for manufacturers to understand how it works and why we use it.

In this #MastersofPMI episode, we’ll cover:

  • What, exactly, X-ray fluorescence (XRF) is
  • Why XRF for PMI is important
  • The pros and cons of using a handheld XRF for PMI
  • The cost of owning a handheld XRF

The #MastersofPMI series is hosted by Chris Carolan of the Metal Analysis Group.
