Niton XL2 Plus Handheld XRF Analyzer

Niton XL2 Plus Handheld XRF Analyzer

Launched in August 2018, the XL2 Plus is the latest in the XL2 product range of X-Ray fluorescence analysers. There are two models, the XL2 980 Plus is calibrated for metals, and XL2 950 Plus for mining. The XL2 Plus can identify Niobium in Titanium alloys down to 200 ppm and more generally, elements from Magnesium to Uranium, down to 20 ppm in some common alloys.

The Niton XL2 Plus is a tough, powerful, handheld instrument for identifying metal alloys and mineral ores easily in the field. Confidently perform elemental analysis with the Thermo Scientific™ Niton™ XL2 Plus handheld XRF analyzer. When durability, performance and productivity are top of mind, industrial businesses rely on the Niton XL2 Plus handheld XRF analyzer for fast results and low detection limits. Identify pure metals and alloys, or obtain geochemical data, the Niton XL2 Plus provides operators the ability to scan a broad range of materials in one versatile analyzer.
