Niton XL5 Plus Applications

The Niton XL5 Plus Handheld XRF Analyzer is specifically engineered to offer tailored solutions for alloy, soil, and mining applications. Its advanced features and flexibility make it well-suited to meet the specialized needs of these sectors, delivering results that are both quick and precise. Whether it’s for alloy material identification, environmental soil composition assessment, or mining sample grade evaluation, the Niton XL5 Plus is the analyzer of choice for accurate and efficient elemental assessments.

Specializing in alloy analysis, the Niton XL5 Plus facilitates positive material identification (PMI) and ensures quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) during manufacturing processes. It is also essential for scrap metal recycling, coatings examination, and mining operations. Moreover, the analyzer demonstrates its value in exploration tasks such as soil sampling and drill core assessment. It is equally crucial for grade and process control in mining and environmental projects, including soil cleanup. Importantly, it can ascertain lead paint action levels (PCS sheet needed), taking into account the varying regulations in the USA and Canada.
