Elemental Analyzers (XRF & PMI)

XRF (X-ray fluorescence)

XRF is a non-destructive analysis technique for determining the elemental composition of materials.

Thermo Scientific Niton handheld analyzers identify alloys, detect tramp elements, analyze precious metals, provide geochemical data and determine coating weight and plating thickness.

XRF Analyzers can be used for a broad range of applications such as:

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

With over 50 years of handheld XRF experience, we can assist with the most specific and challenging applications. For more information on which XRF analyzer will best suit your application or elemental range, contact one of our qualified MFE specialists
