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

Mining Exploration

  • 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

  • Recover lost material traceability

  • Isolate finished welds to validate filler material and dilution

  • Confirm the integrity of process process piping, valves and reaction vessels
