The Niton XL5 Plus analyzer can identify the grade of these aluminum flakes in under 2 seconds

Take the guesswork out of your scrap metal operation. Base your decisions on experience.

When the exact chemical composition of scrap—including the existence of contaminants or hazardous elements—is uncertain, it puts quality, safety, and regulatory compliance at risk. To help ensure fast, accurate alloy analysis in your scrap metal operations, rely on proven Thermo Scientific Niton Handheld X-ray fluorescence (HHXRF) analyzers.

Lightweight yet rugged Niton HHXRF analyzers perform non-destructive analysis of metals and alloys in seconds, with little to no sample preparation. For nearly 30 years, recycling yards have used these analyzers with confidence to verify elements in virtually all types of metal alloys, from trace levels to commercially pure metals, even between alloy grades that are nearly identical in composition.

  • Ultra-fast alloy grade identification for accurate scrap sorting, including NEW aluminum/magnesium alloy analysis in under 2 seconds
  • Positively identify numerous alloys at material transfer points to guarantee product quality
  • Accurately determine metal composition to optimize trading value
  • Detect tramp/trace elements
  • Increase the speed of metal processing operations
  • Provide higher quality product to your customers
Niton XL5 Plus Scrap Metal Analysis

New — Analyze light metals in under 2 seconds

Speed and accuracy are top priorities when sorting recycling materials, especially valuable light metals like aluminum.

The Niton XL5 Plus Analyzer has a new mode that allows users to confidently grade aluminum alloys in under 2 seconds. Users can also grade magnesium alloys down to .5% in that time, or they can analyze longer for even lower detection levels. The new mode Light Metal Quick Sort, goes beyond ultra-fast aluminum and magnesium analysis; it also allows users to rapidly identify high-value alloy families such as stainless steel, nickel, cobalt, copper, and titanium.
