Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc, the world leader in serving science, has announced the launch of the Niton® XL2 GOLDD™ Series handheld x ray fluorescence analyzer. The company also introduced the enhanced Niton XL3t GOLDD+ Series, which offers the ultimate performance and features for advanced quality assurance. The instruments of choice in nondestructive elemental analysis solutions for metal alloy verification, Thermo Scientific Niton analyzers provide superior accuracy in grade identification and alloy chemistry in seconds.
Thermo Fisher Scientific is the world’s leading manufacturer of handheld x ray fluorescence analyzers. Thermo Scientific geometrically optimized large area drift detector technology delivers faster measurement times and lower detection limits as much as 10 times faster than conventional Si PIN detectors and up to three times more precise than conventional smaller silicon drift detectors.
This innovative technology also allows light element analysis of magnesium, aluminum, silicon, phosphorus and sulfur without helium purge or vacuum assist. When joined with advanced Thermo Scientific Niton analyzer proprietary electronics, new levels of analytical capabilities are realized.
Mr Bob Wopperer director of marketing and business development for Thermo Scientific Niton Analyzers said that "With the launch of the Niton XL2 GOLDD and enhanced Niton XL3t GOLDD+, we now offer a range of products to the aerospace, metal fabrication, foundry and related industries, which are engineered from the ground up to help eliminate any guesswork in verifying metal alloys for manufacturing quality assurance."
He added that "We know that the potential for material mix ups is very real and that the need for traceability is a priority. Our nondestructive analyzers provide a worry free solution. They take control of material verification, recovery of lost traceability, isolation of finish welds to validate filler material and dilution rates, and confirmation of finished products all without damaging samples in any way. This means users can save both time and additional testing expense."
