Thermo Fisher Scientific - Niton™ XL5 Scarp Metal Identification

Powerful alloy verification is within your reach with the new Thermo Scientific™ Niton™ XL5 Analyzer. This lightweight, ergonomically designed handheld X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) analyzer offers a new level of speed, accuracy and productivity to metal recyclers, fabricators and PMI inspectors.

The XL5 analyzer’s compact design optimizes the geometry between the x-ray source, fluorescence detector and sample, improving limits of detection and shortening measurement times -- especially for light elements. The XL5 analyzer not only measures metals but also the elemental composition of scale, sludge, oil, powders and slurries.
