Niton XL3t handheld XRF

The Niton XL3t handheld XRF instrument can be used for both field and laboratory-based measurements of elements in solid rock samples, sediments and powders. The instrument can analyse elements as light as Mg, Si and S, through to trace elements such as Pb, Mo and V. The instrument utilises a He purge system for the analysis of the lightest elements. Detection limits are well below the average crustal composition for most measured elements. For laboratory use, the XL3t can be integrated with a lab stand and USB connection to a computer for automation of the analysis process.
