Thermo Fisher Scientific introduces new Thermo Scientific Niton XRF alloy analyzer

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, is pleased to announce the launch of the Niton® XL2 Series handheld x-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzer as the newest member of its family of Thermo Scientific Niton alloy analyzers. Thermo Fisher Scientific is the worlds leading manufacturer of handheld x-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzers.

"With the launch of the Niton XL2, 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," said Bob Wopperer, director of marketing and business development for Thermo Scientific Niton Analyzers.

Wopperer continued, "We know that the potential for material mix-ups is very real and that the need for traceability is a priority. Our nondestructive analyzers can provide a worry-free solution that takes control of material verification, recovery of lost traceability, isolation of finish welds to validate filler material and dilution, and confirmation of finished products all without damaging samples in any way, which can save both time and additional testing expense."

A Family of Thermo Scientific Niton XRF Analyzers

Handheld Niton XL2 and award-winning Niton XL3 Series XRF analyzers are purpose-built for taking measurements anywhere, anytime, with accurate results available in seconds, saving significant expense in comparison to traditional laboratory testing. These easy-to-use, nondestructive instruments provide integral storage of all test results, which are completely tamperproof. Multiple communication options include Bluetooth* wireless, USB and RS-232 serial communication ports.

They also come standard with Thermo Scientific Niton Data Transfer (NDT©) software, a suite of data management utilities that allows users to set operator permissions, print certificates of analysis to document results or operate the analyzer remotely from a PC. The NDT file format preserves and protects the data from each sample analysis, ensuring that this data is not unintentionally or intentionally compromised.

Replacing our award-winning Niton XLt analyzers, Niton XL2 analyzers are lightweight yet ruggedized for harsh shop environments. Ergonomically designed and featuring daylight readable icons, the Niton XL2 incorporates customizable menus for ease of use, multi-language options and a standard analytical range of more than 25 elements. It is the ideal instrument to provide rapid results for confident decision making.

Niton XL3 GOLDD analyzers deliver major improvements in sensitivity and measurement times, as much as 10 times faster than conventional Si-PIN detectors, and up to 3 times more precise than conventional SDD detectors. Further, the Niton XL3 GOLDD measures light elements (magnesium, aluminum, silicon, phosphorus, and sulfur) without the need for helium or vacuum purging. This means it has the capability to accurately sort additional grades including, titanium alloys, aluminum and silicon bronzes, and aluminums for silicon and magnesium content it can even identify SS303, SS416 and other free-machining stainless steels based on sulfur content. In addition, the Niton XL3 GOLDD includes an integral CCD color camera to record an image of the actual test area with test data. The optional small spot feature allows users to isolate and test small sample areas, such as welds and seams.

Our customers are served through corporate resources and a dedicated network of more than 70 distributors and 30 factory-trained service centers around the world to provide the most effective customer service possible.
