Improved handheld Thermo Scientific Niton XRF analyzers deliver faster, better results
The new Thermo Scientific* Niton* XL2 GOLDD* and enhanced Niton XL3t GOLDD+ Series X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzers are the most recent members of our award-winning family of Thermo Scientific Niton XRF analyzers. They offer high performance and advanced electronics while maintaining the point-and-shoot simplicity that has been the hallmark of all of our XRF instruments. Sealed against moisture and dust with 100% embedded software tools, these nondestructive analyzers are ruggedly built to withstand the harshest environments – in the field or on the shop floor.
“From boosting productivity in scrap metal recycling to testing consumer goods such as toys and apparel, our XRF analyzers are playing an increasing role in improving profitability, compliance, and consumer safety,” said Bob Wopperer, director of marketing and business development for Niton Analyzers. “Now, with the addition of the Niton XL2 GOLDD and the Niton XL3t GOLDD+, we can meet a broader range of cost and performance needs across manufacturing QC, mining and exploration, environmental hazard testing, and more.”
Breakthrough Technology – The GOLDD Advantage
Thermo Scientific geometrically optimized large area drift detector (GOLDD) technology delivers faster measurement times and lower detection limits – as much as 10-times faster than conventional Si-PIN detectors and up to three-times more precise than conventional smaller silicon drift detectors (SDD). This innovative technology also allows light element analysis of magnesium (Mg), aluminum (Al), silicon (Si), phosphorus (P) and sulfur (S) without helium purge or vacuum assist. When joined with advanced Thermo Scientific Niton analyzer proprietary electronics, new levels of analytical capabilities are realized.
Niton XL2 GOLDD – Premier Performance in a Value Package
The Niton XL2 GOLDD delivers high performance in a value package. It is the ideal instrument to:
- Analyze metal alloys for scrap recycling
- Carry out mining operations and grade control
- Rapidly analyze RCRA metals
- Screen for lead in environmental applications
For example, the Niton XL2 GOLDD is the definitive tool for scrap metal recycling by providing immediate nondestructive chemical analysis of alloy materials from aluminum to titanium to nickel, as well as achieving superior performance for tramp and trace element analysis. With its unparalleled accuracy, you can be confident that the Niton XL2 GOLDD won’t misidentify value, grade, or residuals.
Ergonomically designed and featuring daylight-readable icons on an angled color display, the Niton XL2 GOLDD incorporates customizable menus, multi-language options, and a standard analytical range of up to 30 elements from Mg to uranium (U). Take your Niton XL2 GOLDD anywhere. It's your personal field laboratory for dependable elemental analysis that delivers a real competitive edge.
Niton XL3t GOLDD+ - Ultimate Performance in a Feature-rich Package
Engineered from the ground up to eliminate guesswork, the Niton XL3t GOLDD+ analyzer raises the bar when you require extreme accuracy, precision, and ease of use, with its faster analysis, higher precision, and the ability to measure light elements without helium or vacuum assistance. Along with its tilting, color, touch-screen display, this analyzer combines advanced electronics and materials technology with dynamic features and the most versatile X-ray tubes ever used in a handheld instrument. The Niton XL3t GOLDD+ is the instrument of choice to:
- Analyze metal alloys
- Carry out mining exploration and mapping
- Detect soil contaminants
- Test electronics and consumer goods for prohibited substances.
For example, with the very real potential for material mix-ups and the need for traceability a priority, the remarkable Niton XL3t GOLDD+ analyzer provides a worry-free solution that takes control of material verification, recovery of lost traceability, and isolation of finished welds to validate filler material and dilution – all without damaging samples in any way, which can save both time and additional testing expense.
Additionally, the integrated CCD color camera comes standard for accurate sample positioning and image capture, while the optional small-spot feature allows users to isolate and test small sample areas, such as welds and seams.
