Thermo Scientific™ Related applications: Spectroscopy Elemental Isotope AnalysisFind elusive oil and gas deposits and avoid drilling in the wrong spot, which is expensive and time consuming. The Thermo Scientific™ Niton™ XL3t Ultra Analyzer provides rapid sample analysis in the field so that you can quickly find where deposits are and which ones will prove the most productive. This high-functioning tool offers the superior light element detection required for gas shale applications without helium purge or vacuum. It is also the instrument of choice for positive material identification, delivering exceptional elemental analysis and alloy grade identification in seconds.
The Niton XL3t Ultra Analyzer is ideal for specific applications where faster analysis and lower detection limits are needed. The Ultra advantage is a 45mm2 Silicon Drift Detector (SDD) that delivers vast improvements in sensitivity and measurement times– as much as 10-times faster than conventional Si-PIN detectors, and up to 3-times more precise than conventional silicon drift detectors. With its faster analysis, higher precision, and the ability to measure light elements without helium or vacuum assistance, it is the ideal instrument for the following applications:
Oil and Gas Exploration
Upstream exploration and production
Rapid, on-site chemical analysis of rocks, cuttings, and cores that can be used for identifying formations and determining mineral composition of the rock
Inferring mineralogical properties favorable to oil and gas production from data collected in real-time
Early stage exploration: soil survey and outcrop evaluation
Advanced exploration and drilling: trend analysis to identify decreasing or increasing pattern of elements of interest to make “continue” or “stop” drilling decisions onsite
Ore deposit modeling/mapping
Positive Material Identification (PMI)
Fast, accurate alloy analysis and positive alloy grade identification
Incoming materials inspection, in-process verification, and final product inspection
