Pine offers the most comprehensive fleet of materials testing instruments in the industry. We specialize in carrying Non-Destructive Testing equipment for applications used in science and industry; ultrasonic testing, electromagnetic testing, material hardness analyzers, and XRF/OES (PMI) instruments for evaluating the properties of a material without causing damage. Pine provides flaw detection equipment for most methods where applications involve inspecting ferrous and non-ferrous metals, welds and other material. Inspection firms rely on Pine for our eddy current instruments when looking for small cracks and other forms of discontinuities at or near the surface of a material. When your plant maintenance mechanical integrity program calls for tank and vessel inspection instruments, you can rely on Pine to have the instrumentation you need.

Pine carries instruments from some of the most trusted names in the industry such as JIREH Industries, Olympus, Thermo Niton, and GE Inspection Technologies to name a few.

Pine’s technical support enables effective and efficient use of all our instrumentation. We can also assist in maintaining the equipment that you may already own, so be sure to ask your sales representative about our services. We also carry many of the consumable and PPE supplies that you will need while on the job, enabling us to be your single source supplier.


Eddy Current Inspection
Eddy Current Inspection

Eddy current inspection (ET) is one of several non-destructive testing methods that use the principal of electromagnetic induction to detect flaws in conductive materials. Eddy current is well suited to detect small cracks as well as other forms of discontinuities at or near the surface of the material, the surface preparation is minimal, and complex specimen geometry can be inspected.

Pine provides eddy current instruments as well as ferrite measurement instruments for many applications such as:

  • Crack detection
  • Tube inspection
  • Material thickness
  • Coating thickness
  • Conductivity assessment
  • Material identification
  • Excessive heat damage detection
  • Heat treatment monitoring

We provide our customers with access to wide variety of eddy current inspection instruments from manufacturers such as Olympus and GE Inspection Technologies.

Leak Detection
Leak Detection

Leak detection is the process of identifying potentially hazardous leaks by means of various acoustic sensors which detect changes in the background noise of its environment and “hear” the escaping substance. These sensors are used for a wide range of applications, for example:

  • Industrial plants
  • Refineries
  • Waste water treatment facilities
  • Vehicles
  • Buildings
  • Residences

PMI (Positive Material Identification)
PMI (Positive Material Identification)

Positive Material Identification (PMI) is an essential part of the material testing/material evaluation process that verifies the alloy composition of a given sample conforms to advertised specifications and assuring the chemical composition of the metallic material contains the correct percentages of key elements.

Pine carries a wide variety of portable x-ray fluorescence (XRF) and optical emission spectrometer (OES) instruments for non-destructive testing (NDT) applications to detect materials such as:

  • Carbon alloy steel
  • Stainless steel
  • Aluminum alloys
  • Nickel alloys
  • Titanium alloys
  • Tool steels

We provide our customers with access to the largest PMI fleet in the industry with instruments from manufacturers such as Thermo Scientific, Olympus Innov-X and Oxford Instruments.

Thermal Inspection (Thermography)
Thermal Inspection (Thermography)

Thermal inspection is a non-destructive testing method that involves the measurement, or mapping of surface temperatures as heat flows to, from and/or through an object. Thermal imaging systems create pictures of heat flow (rather than of light) and allow thermal information to be rapidly collected over a wide area in a non-contact mode. Thermal imaging is a fast, cost effective way to perform detailed and precise analysis.

Thermal measurement methods have a wide range of applications and are used in many ways, for example:

  • Police and military for night vision
  • Surveillance
  • Navigation
  • Fireman and emergency rescue
  • Energy audits
  • Preventative maintenance
  • Moisture and leak assessments
  • Process control

We provide thermal imaging cameras able to detect a wide range of temperature variances from manufacturers such as FLUKE and FLIR.
