Elemental Analyzers (XRF PMI LIBS) For Sale

XRF (X-ray fluorescence)

XRF is a non-destructive evaluation method to determine the elemental composition of materials.

Thermo Scientific Niton handheld analyzers identify alloys, detect tramp elements, examine precious metals, offer geochemical information and determine coating weight and plating thickness.

XRF Analyzers may be used for various applications, such as:

  • Scrap metal recycling – For sorting of scrap metals.
  • Oil and gas – For positive material identification (PMI) of piping material.
  • Precious metal recycling – To determine the grade of precious metals and prevent deleterious metals from entering the recycling process.
  • Automotive & aerospace – For quality control of metallic and coated parts.
  • Metal fabricating – For non-destructive elemental analysis, ensuring no incorrect or off-spec metals or alloys enter manufacturing processes.
  • Mining & exploration – To identify and recover the most economically viable resources.
  • Construction & environmental engineering – Risk assessment, hazardous site modeling, and remediation quality control.

LIBS analyzers use a highly concentrated laser to ablate the surface of a sample and determine the elemental composition of materials.

MFE Inspection Solutions’ handheld LIBS analyzers can measure key elements such as carbon equivalence.

Carbon equivalence shows how material composition contributes to the steel’s susceptibility to cold cracking (hydrogen cracking). In addition, carbon equivalent calculations can estimate the hardenability of the heat-affected zone (HAZ) within welds.

With over 50 years of experience working with handheld XRFs, we can help you with the most specific and demanding applications. For more information on which XRF analyzer best suits your application or element spectrum, don’t hesitate to contact one of our qualified MFE specialists.
