Niton XL5 Plus Handheld XRF Analyzer Applications:

The Niton XL5 Plus Handheld XRF Analyzer provides customizable solutions specifically designed for alloy, soil, and mining applications. With its advanced capabilities and versatility, it caters to the unique requirements of these industries, delivering accurate and rapid results. Whether you need to analyze alloys for material identification, assess soil composition in environmental studies, or evaluate mining samples for grade control, the Niton XL5 Plus is your go-to analyzer for precise and efficient elemental analysis.

The Niton XL5 Plus Handheld XRF Analyzer excels in alloy analysis, enabling positive material identification (PMI) and quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) in fabrication processes. It is also indispensable in scrap metal recycling, coatings analysis, and mining operations. Additionally, the analyzer proves its worth in exploration activities such as soil sampling and drill core evaluation. It is equally valuable for grade control and process control purposes in mining and environmental applications, including soil remediation. Notably, it offers the ability to determine lead paint action levels (PCS sheet required), considering the different regulations in the USA and Canada.
