24/7 Technical Support

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.


Pine provides a first-class technical support service as well as advice on which product will be best suited to your needs. Our quality management system insures that all equipment is tested and calibrated to manufacturer’s specifications when you receive it.

Thermo Fisher Scientific Niton Apollo LIBS Analyzer
Thermo Fisher Scientific Niton Apollo LIBS Analyzer

Pine Item #: 56096

When carbon detection and mobility are top of mind, industrial businesses rely on the Thermo Scientific™ Niton™ Apollo™ LIBS analyzer. Leveraging Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS), the Niton Apollo delivers superior performance and enhanced productivity. Unleash the possibilities and bring the power of lab analysis to the field.

Analytical performance:
Designed to provide low limits of detection, the Niton Apollo enables users to quantify the elemental composition of materials. Specially engineered to determine carbon content in low alloy and carbon steels, the Niton Apollo utilizes a high purity argon purge to achieve superior results.

Expanded field access:
Avoid maneuvering heavy equipment into tight spaces. Weighing just 6.4 pounds (2.9 kilograms), the Niton Apollo transforms a laboratory or cart-mounted spark Optical Emission Spectroscopy (OES) system into a highly portable handheld analyzer. Whether hanging from a rope or climbing in a trench, the Niton Apollo easily and safely travels with the user.

Functionality:
Vivid icons and an application interface ease navigation and configuration. Utilize swipe and touchscreen functionality, even with a gloved hand. The Niton Apollo’s optional directional keys provide added usability. A micro and macro camera enable precise sample positioning and collect images for better record keeping. WiFi accessibility also automatically transmits data from your device to a PC.

User-Friendly:
Discover high-speed performance combined with point and shoot simplicity. With minimal training, the Niton Apollo is easily operated even by non-technical users. From confirming steel grades to determining metal compositions, the Niton Apollo is ready to work when you are.
