Thermo Scientific Niton XRF Analyzers Generations

Thermo Scientific Niton XRF Analyzers Generations

Thermo Scientific, a leading manufacturer of analytical instruments, has developed several generations of Niton XRF (X ray fluorescence) analyzers. These handheld devices are used for non-destructive elemental analysis of various materials, including metals, plastics, and ceramics. Since late 1960s, XRF has evolved through 7 generations; each generation has added new capabilities

  • Smaller
  • Faster
  • Better performance
  • Easier to use
  • Today, nearly all alloys can be tested with these powerful tools
