Niton Xl3

The Niton XL3t offers enhanced features designed for specific industry applications.

A tilting, color, touch-screen display allows easy viewing of sample results under any

condition. With the optional integrated camera, users can locate, view, and store the

image of an analysis area along with the test results for later reference. The Niton XL3t is

upgradeable to the Niton XL3t GOLDD+.

The Niton XL3t GOLDD+ delivers the ultimate performance in a feature-rich

package. Its enhanced GOLDD technology offers superior performance for light element

(Mg-S) analysis with the lowest limits of detection and fastest measurement times. A

helium purge option is also available for further enhancing light elements.

Niton Xl5

Powered by advanced electronics, Niton XL5 generates elemental results faster and more accurately than ever before. Results are displayed in real time, allowing the operator to see material-chemistry data as measurements are being calculated.


Niton XL5 optimizes the geometry between the x-ray source detector and the sample, improving limits of detection and shortening measurement times, especially for light elements. A wider alloy library increases coverage, and an internal calibration standard ensures accuracy.


Introducing Niton XL5. At 2.8 lbs. (1.3 kg.), Niton XL5 is the lightest XRF metals analyzer available. Light weight reduces operator fatigue in verifying alloy composition and grade.


A macro-camera captures a simple image. A micro-camera ensures precise sample analysis location.
