The NITON XL-800series Alloy Analyzers

Ultra Portable... Very Affordable

The only Alloy Analyzer that fits in your hand

Bring your machine to the metal... don't bring your metal to the machine.

NITON's XL-800series hand-held XRF analyzers are the most
convenient instruments you can take into the field for on-site
testing of metal alloys. The detectors utilize x-ray fluorescence
(XRF) technology to analyze and identify metal samples and
report elemental compositions.

The instrument contains a 109Cd source that is used to excite the characteristic fluorescent x-rays in a sample. Using the latest advancements in microprocessor technology and sophisticated fundamental parameters (FP) software, the NITON analyzes samples in seconds. There is no down-time between tests. The
instrument is a single unit weighing less than 2 1/2 lbs. It's rugged,
fast, and easy to use.

NITON XL-800series Alloy Analyzers are extremely versatile and
have two convenient modes of operation. In rapid identification
mode, the instrument performs 'signature" matching from a user defined library of over 200 alloys. The second mode identifies approximated alloy chemistry plus grade identification of over 150 common alloys in 3 to 5 seconds, and higher precision chemistry in 10-20 seconds.


NITON instruments are used successfully for metals analysis in industries and organizations world wide.
