Update to Niton XL2 XRF analyzer designed to improve productivity in scrap recycling, fabrication and PMI

The Thermo Scientific Niton XL2 handheld X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzer is now easier to use and more durable for operators and quality control personnel in scrap recycling, fabrication, PMI and other industrial applications thanks to a new design update. The Thermo Scientific Niton XL2 Plus handheld XRF analyzer, which provides elemental composition and enables metal alloy identification, is intended to allow users to conduct laboratory-quality testing in the field. The update incorporates new functionality into the original Niton XL2 analyzer that is designed to provide uninterrupted operation in harsh environments, as well as an advanced silicon drift detector (SDD) that delivers superior analytical performance.

Latest handheld XRF analyzers are lightweight, safe and smart

Thermo Fisher Scientific was one of the over 250 exhibitors at this year's ISRI 2017, held in April, in New Orleans, Louisiana. The company showed off their core solutions for scrap sorting, metal and alloy analysis, including an OES benchtop spectrometer and a wide range of handheld XRF analyzers.

Analyzing the options of handheld analyzers

Scrap handling operations can be thrown into disarray when sorting isn’t done properly on the line. Whether it is metals being combined erroneously or tramp material being missed in the process, businesses need to ensure that their product – and their profit – is protected.

XRF analyzers provide rapid, on-site elemental analysis

Thermo Scientific Niton portable x-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzers, now including the handheld Niton XL2 GOLDD Series analyzer and the enhanced Niton XL3t GOLDD+, are designed to provide users with high levels of productivity and profitability in metals recycling.

The next generation in automated scrap monitoring

Thermo Scientific’s newly introduced ASM IV Series Radiation Detection System is specifically designed to minimize the threat of radioactive material in a waste stream. The ASM IV Series will monitor a variety of vehicle types and scan for undesirable sources of radiation commonly found in scrap metal, allowing operators to reject loads before they can cause harm to personnel or a facility.  

Light element analyzers

The handheld NITON XL3t 900 series provides highly comprehensive alloy sorting capabilities ideal for recycling and other applications. The XL3t 900 system fills the interior of its unique measurement head with pure helium, purging atmospheric air from the X-ray analysis path, and allows light element X-rays to contact its high-resolution detector.
