Instant results

Niton handheld XRF analyzers support efficiency and productivity with lab-quality results in your hand. Perform elemental analysis and material identification directly on-site and avoid the lengthy turn-around times that come with sending samples for third-party lab testing. Niton handheld XRF analyzers provide fast analysis to maximize throughput and production, even non-technical personnel can quickly come up to speed with minimal training. Niton elemental analyzers also come with hot swap battery functionality, so you can quickly replace a depleted battery, without pausing operations.

Bottom line protection

Niton handheld XRF analyzers offer a range of solutions to accurately quantify precious metal content in automotive catalytic converters. Niton handheld XRF analyzers offer exceptional value while maintaining a high level of performance in platinum group metal identification. Features including filter changers, large silicon drift detectors, and light element detection allow for optimum beam conditions, precision and accuracy, while facilitating the confidence of low-level PGM detection to protect your financial investments.

Unprecedented performance

The Niton XL5 Plus Handheld XRF Analyzer’s state-of-the-art technology now includes the pre-calibrated Automotive Catalyst Mode. The Niton XL5 Plus Handheld XRF Analyzer is equipped with a fundamental parameter approach (FP), suitable for analyzing materials that show unprecedented variability in their composition. The Niton XL5 Plus Handheld XRF Analyzer measures various elements, including rare earth, zirconium, lead, and others potentially present at high levels in spent catalysts to maintain accurate results for Pt, Pd, and Rh.

Smart technology

Niton handheld XRF analyzers help you work smarter, not harder. Our smart, simplified software solutions feature an application interface that is straightforward and easy to use. You’ll have the option to customize data fields and user profiles to create workflow solutions designed to meet the needs of your business. And with our proprietary NitonConnect PC software, you can even remotely operate the analyzer from the comfort of your computer. Our premiere analyzers also feature micro and macro cameras to collect sample imagery, and WiFi capability to remotely transfer and view readings.
