Hitachi High-Tech Analytical Science is a global company created in July 2017 within the Hitachi High Technologies Group.  Hitachi High-Tech Analytical Science has put years of experience of practical analysis into the development of a range of analyzers for PMI/NDT use across large-scale industrial processing plants. With a focus on robustness, ease of use and accuracy, you can take Hitachi PMI analyzers to every corner of your plant, including hard-to-reach test locations and welds.

Main Applications

Our analyzers are suitable for oil and gas plants, power plants and chemical processing facilities – and have a wide range of applications. The most common are:
  • Oil and gas upstream: Material verification of metal components on and offshore. Instant results of material grade and chemistry.
  • Oil and gas midstream: Pipeline safety verification with reliable, fast and comprehensive chemistry measurements.
  • Oil and gas downstream: Complete PMI for components before, during and at end-of-life, including weld integrity.
  • Power: Complete PMI for components that must meet ASME Section IX B&PV code standards and flow accelerated corrosion (FAC) analysis.
  • All plants: Verifying materials for weldability, providing a library of carbon equivalent and other formulas. High temperature testing capability for reduced downtime.
