Niton XRF Analyzers


As Seen In Production Machining

Handheld Alloy Analyzers
The company’s handheld XRF analyzers, the Thermo Scientific Niton XL2 GOLDD Series and the enhanced Thermo Scientific Niton XL3t GOLDD+ Series, are especially useful for scrap metal grading and sorting and provide low detection limits for tramp and trace element analysis.

Handheld Metal Alloy Analyzers Provide Traceability
Designed to eliminate guesswork in verifying metal alloys for manufacturing quality assurance, the Niton XL2 and XL3 x-ray fluorescence (XRF) handheld analyzers provide analysis within seconds anywhere, any time, the company says.

XL3t Series with geometrically optimized large area drift detector (GOLDD) technology

Handheld Analyzer With Large Area Drift Detector
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. ’s Thermo Scientific Niton XL3t Series with geometrically optimized large area drift detector (GOLDD) technology. Groundbreaking GOLDD technology delivers improvements in light element detection, overall sensitivity and measurement times as much as 10 times faster than conventional Si-PIN detectors, and as much as three times more precise than conventional smaller, silicon drift detectors.

Multilayer Coating Thickness Measurement
The handheld Thermo Scientific Niton XL3t 800 XRF analyzer, with positive grade identification and composition analysis of alloy and metal coatings and substrates, now will offer the benefit of coating thickness and coating weight measurement, providing an out of the box, nondestructive solution for gaging the effectiveness of coating and plating systems.  Fast and easy to use, the instrument will not only perform at line and plating bath solution analysis, but provides more accurate data than non-XRF technologies, such as eddy current, magnetic induction and Beta backscatter. Users will get precise multilayer coating thickness results in seconds, the company says.

Material Analysis At The Source
Growing material costs and quality control concerns have increased demand for accurate and fast methods of analyzing alloy composition. X-ray fluorescence (XRF) handheld analyzers allow in-line testing of a variety of materials.

Handheld Analyzers
The Thermo Scientific Niton XL3 800 series provides fast alloy grade identification and laboratory-quality composition analysis of metal alloys. Typical time for routine positive grade identification is less than 2 seconds--as much as four times faster than the company's previous series of instruments.

Software Upgrade For Hand-Held Analyzers
The Niton Data Transfer software release 6. 4 is available for Thermo Fisher Scientific's hand-held Niton XL3 series analyzers.

Handheld Analyzer For Light Element Analysis
The XL3t 900 handheld XRF analyzer for light element analysis in alloy material has a helium-purging mechanism for direct analysis of light elements. Thermo Scientific Niton analyzer provides more alloy sorting capabilities than previously achieved with handheld instrumentation.

Handheld X-Ray Fluorescence Analyzers
The Thermo Scientific Niton XL3 800 series of handheld XRF analyzers provide fast alloy grade identification and laboratory-quality composition analysis of metal alloys, according to the manufacturer, Thermo Fisher Scientific. Typical time for routine positive grade identification is less than 2 seconds. The series is available in a range of configurations and with an assortment of optional features and accessories to suit a variety of analytical needs.

Portable Analysis Tool
The Niton XLt 898He is a portable analysis tool for light-element content in alloy material. The tool provides fast, laboratory-quality chemical analysis of light element content in aluminum and titanium alloys, as well as nickle, superalloy, stainless steel and more. The analyzer fills the interior of its measurement head with pure helium, purging atmospheric air from the X-ray analysis path and allows light element X-rays to contact the high-resolution X-ray detector.

Features Added To RoHS Analyzer
Thermo Electron's Niton Analyzers are portable X-ray fluorescence (XRF) instruments for on-site, nondestructive RoHS screening. These analyzers are used for testing of polymers, solders and electronic components for RoHS, ELV and WEEE compliance verification screening. RoHS compliance screening has allowed the industry to bring the "laboratory" to the object to be analyzed, resulting in more extensive testing being performed and testing of many objects that otherwise might not receive any verification testing.

Alloy Analyzers--Niton
Niton alloy analyzers, XLi and XLt, are the tools especially for QA/QC of alloy materials, NIST-traceable validation and validation and positive material identification of machined or fabricated components. With the simple press of a trigger, the company's analyzer provides positive grade identification and composition analysis of stainless steel, nickel and company nondestructive, the analysis of stainless steels, nickel and cobalt-based alloys, titanium alloys and much more in 2 to 5 seconds. Since XRF technology is nondestructive, the analysis can be performed without concern or finished and installed components as well as raw materials.

Portable Alloy Analysis
An overview of the company's XLi800 and XLt800 isotope-based XRF analyzers is provided, along with features such as ergonomic design and touch-screen display. .

Shopfloor Alloy Analyzer: Material ID On The Fly
Part designers love to look through various material speci- fication tables and charts to find an alloy that is 'just right' for a given application. While that works fine for designers, the myriad of alloy options available can wreak havoc in the shop charged with making the parts.
