New Thermo Scientific Niton XL3t-800 XRF Analyzer

Niton XL3t-800 XRF Analyzer a history of breakthrough technologies distinguishes Thermo Scientific Niton x-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzers. In 2002, we pioneered the use of miniaturized x-ray tubes in handheld XRF analyzers. Since that time, the performance and features of Niton XRF instruments have improved continuously. Now we introduce a groundbreaking new generation of portable XRF analyzers, combining advanced electronics and materials technology with the most powerful x-ray tubes ever used in a handheld XRF instrument: presenting the Niton XL3t.

Featuring a high-performance thermoelectrically cooled detector, 80 MHz real-time digital signal processing, and dual state-of-the-art embedded processors for computation, data storage, communication, and other functions, the Niton XL3t incorporates many new features directly benefiting the customer. From the integrated, tilting, color, touchscreen display to the customizable menus for ease of use, these ergonomic new analyzers are both the lightest weight and most ruggedly constructed x-ray tube-sourced handheld XRF analyzers ever made.

Niton XL3t instruments can be used for many nondestructive testing applications, including analysis of metal alloys, screening of electronics and consumer goods for prohibited substances, mining exploration and grade control, and more. For example, the Thermo Scientific Niton XL3t 800 Series is the definitive tool for scrap metal recycling, casting and fabrication, manufacturing and Positive Material Identification (PMI). Alloy grade ID and QC testing typically take 1 to 2 seconds, with accurate alloy chemistry in as little as 3 to 5 seconds. Similarly, compliance testing for meeting the demands set forth in the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA), Proposition 65, Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS), and other regulations is faster than ever before with the Niton XL3t 700 Series, including screening of incoming materials, stocks and outgoing finished goods. Detection limits for all banned substances are improved – especially for cadmium – with the 50 kV x-ray tube sample excitation system.

The Niton XL3t’s analytical power alone puts it in a field by itself. With its many standard features and available options, it stands far above the competition. Integrated USB and Bluetooth™ communications provide direct data transfer to the user’s PC or networked storage device, eliminating cumbersome data syncing procedures required by PDA-based XRF analyzers. A clip-on weld mask and folding test stand help users safely analyze difficult to measure samples. Additionally, the optional heat shield extends the hot-surface testing capability from 600ºF (315ºC) to 1,000ºF (538ºC), protecting both the analyzer and the operator’s hand from these elevated temperatures. Add the optional integrated sample imaging system and 3 mm small spot feature to locate areas of interest in a sample, such as a small component or button, then store the image of each sample analyzed along with measurement results; or choose the Helium Purge Light Element Analysis Package for direct analysis of Mg, Al, Si, and P.

Take advantage of the standard Niton Data Transfer (NDT©) PC software suite to customize the instrument, set user permissions, generate custom reports and print certificates of analysis, or to remotely monitor and operate the instrument hands-free. Whether you need an analyzer for metal alloy analysis, RoHS compliance or toy and consumer goods screening, mining or mineral exploration, art conservation, or archaeometric analysis, the Niton XL3t combines the analytical performance of lab-grade instrumentation with the high-speed performance, ease of use, and cutting-edge technology customers have come to expect from their Niton analyzers.
