The Niton XL2 Goldd and Niton XL3t Goldd+ handheld XRF analyzers from Thermo Fisher Scientific are designed to deliver rapid, reliable metal alloy verification for quality assurance in manufacturing. In seconds, both instruments provide high accuracy in grade identification and alloy chemistry.
The company says its geometrically optimized, large-area drift detector (Goldd) technology delivers fast measurement times and low detection limits. The technology also enables analysis of light elements such as magnesium, aluminum, silicon, phosphorus and sulfur without helium purge or vacuum assist. When joined with the company’s Niton analyzer proprietary electronics, the system offers a range of products to verify metal alloys for manufacturing quality assurance in aerospace, metal fabrication, foundry and related industries
The Niton XL2 Goldd analyzers have a 45kV, 100 μA x-ray tube and can withstand severe environments. The analyzer incorporates customizable menus, multi-language options and a standard analytical range of more than 30 elements from magnesium to uranium.
The Niton XL3t Goldd+ analyzers have 50kV, 200 μA x-ray tubes and a tilting, color touchscreen display. A helium-purge option is available for ultra-low magnesium analysis. In addition, these analyzers enable users to identify free-machining stainless steels based on sulfur content.
