Ensure material chemistry specifications are met. The Thermo Scientific™ Niton™ XL5 Handheld XRF Analyzer identifies alloys, detects tramp elements, delivers geochemical data, analyzes precious metals, and determines coating weight and plating thickness. A lightweight, ergonomic design reduces operator fatigue and expands field use for hard to reach places. Powered by a proprietary 5W x-ray tube, the Niton XL5 Handheld XRF Analyzer optimizes the geometry between the x-ray source, fluorescence detector and sample. Ultimately limits of detection (LODs) are improved and measurement times shortened, ensuring lab quality results every time.
