Thermo Scientific
Thermo Scientific Niton XL3t 950 GOLDD

Technical Specifications

The Thermo Scientific Niton XL3t 950 GOLDD is a portable, handheld x-ray fluorescence analyzer. Combining advanced technology with versatile x-ray tubes, this instrument is ideal for field analysis, providing instantaneous results and advanced light element analysis.

  • For example, rock identification is usually done by examining thin sections of rock under optical microscope, being time consuming and requiring a thin section preparation laboratory onsite.
  •  Field portable x-ray fluorescence (FPXRF) can not only be used to identify elemental composition , but also the subtle changes in geochemistry of rocks and monitoring of the gradual transition from one rock type to another.
