The Niton XL3 500 provides the ideal choice for mining applications, providing unprecedented performance in the palm of your hand. The handheld x-ray fluorescence analyser is especially designed for measuring elemental concentrations in ores, soils, sediments and cores, coatings and filter media.

The Thermo Scientific Niton XL3t analyzer combines advanced electronics and materials technology with dynamic features and the most versatile x-ray tubes ever used in a handheld XRF instrument. When this power is harnessed to our groundbreaking GOLDD+™ technology, it takes your analytical capabilities to a whole new level. The direct benefits to you include: real-time results, advanced light element analysis, and ultimate performance in our robust, proven design.

From their extraordinary speed and precision to the integrated, tilting, color, touch-screen display and the customizable menus for ease of use, ergonomic Niton® XL3t GOLDD+ analyzers are lightweight, ruggedly constructed, and fast. GOLDD technology delivers vast improvements in sensitivity or measurement times – as much as 10-times faster than conventional Si-PIN detectors, and up to 3-times more precise than conventional silicon drift detectors (SDD).
