At SME, we will be featuring the following solutions from our mining product line.

Exploration solutions

Handheld XRF
Thermo Scientific™ Niton™ handheld XRF analyzers provide fast and accurate geochemical data. With the power to transport your lab to the field, Niton XRF analyzers enable mining companies to quickly identify and recover the most economically viable resources. Discover the all new Niton XL5 Analyzer. With a 66% analytical improvement for mining, the Niton XL5 Analyzer features increased speed, performance and portability. For use with the Niton XL5 Analyzer, our new Niton Mini Test Stand also provides a lightweight, hands-free alternative to analyzing samples.

Material Characterization Analysis

We offer a broad range of Thermo Scientific ARL™ analyzers and spectrometers to meet your analytical laboratory needs including the ARL EQUINOX 100 X-ray diffractometer to quickly obtain detailed materials analysis, the ARL 9900 Series XRF-XRD spectrometers, which provide reliable analysis of elements and compounds in minerals and rocks, and the ARL PERFORM’X analyzer, which augments typical elemental analysis on pelletized or fused mineral samples.

Weighing & monitoring solutions

Accurate Weighing and Measurement
Our portfolio includes a comprehensive line of Thermo Scientific Ramsey™ products to weigh, monitor, detect, sample, and control. The Ramsey Model 10-20 and Ramsey Model 10-101 belt scales with Ramsey Micro-Tech 9101 electronics are just two of the scale systems we offer to accurately monitor production output, control product load-out, and track inventory to manage your process effectively and efficiently. We also offer weighbelt feeders, conveyor protection equipment, continuous level and point level measurement devices.


Reliable Metal Detection
Our NEW Ramsey Oretronic IV Tramp Metal Detector protects crushers and other equipment from damage caused by tramp metals, reducing down time and minimizing lost production. We now offer electronics with two levels of sensitivity to more accurately match your detection requirements. Upgrade and retrofit packages are also available to optimize your existing application.
