The Niton™ XL5 Analyzer provides users a powerful alloy verification tool. This ergonomically designed, lightweight, handheld X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) analyzer supplies excellent levels of accuracy, productivity and speed for fabrication, metal recycling, and PMI inspection.
The compact design permits the user to optimize the geometry between the fluorescence detector, x-ray source, and sample. This enhances the detection limits and makes measurement times quicker – particularly for light elements.
The XL5 analyzer has also been designed to calculate the elemental composition of sludge, oil, scale, slurries and powders. The easy to use software which includes customizable workflow solutions makes the analyzer extremely user-friendly. Numerous operator profiles can be handled simultaneously with the user-management software.
Custom profiles can be created for specific analysis or management requirements. Thanks to the tilting, color touchscreen with swipe functionality, multiple angle viewing is achievable. Using the Niton XL5, operators can easily review data (Data), perform scanning (Analyze), and setup device (Settings). The analyzer generates reliable results to users for easier and faster interpretation.
Advantages of Using Niton XL5 Handheld XRF Analyzer for Industrial Markets
Combined with user profile customizability, micro and macro cameras, and vivid navigation, the XL5 analyzer provides cutting-edge analytical performance in a number of industries, including oil and gas, metal fabrication, and scrap metal recycling.
To ensure that no out-of-specification or incorrect metal alloys enter the manufacturing process, the metal fabricating market is increasingly dependent on XRF to carry out elemental analysis in a non-destructive way.
Composition and alloy grade and for numerous metal chemistries can be established quickly using the XL5 analyzer. Quality assurance and quality control processes can be optimized and confidence in risk-management practices can be increased by utilizing this handheld XRF analyzer.
Oil and Gas
Structural integrity of plant assets and pipelines is a major safety concern in the oil and gas industries. Positive material identification (PMI) of piping material is crucial in areas facing problems such as sulfidic corrosion and flow accelerated corrosion.
The composition of reaction vessels, valves, and piping can be established within seconds by utilizing the XL5 analyzer, with the lowest LODs possible. The handheld XRF analyzer permits users to carry out continuous inspection by giving access to corner welds and tight spots along the pipelines throughout the plant, thus decreasing operator fatigue.
Scrap Metal Recycling
The growing utilization of recycled materials in fabrication processes has resulted in the continuous expansion of the scrap metal market. There is an increasing risk of having higher proportions of tramp/trace elements in the recycled materials as a result. So, it is necessary to identify and measure these materials to comply with regulatory standards.
With an internal calibration standard to ensure accuracy, a wider coverage with determination of over 30 elements, and an extensive alloy library, the XL5 analyzer helps the supply chain to be free from contaminated scrap or alloy-mix ups.
