Positive material identification (PMI) is a necessary, but often burdensome, task. Why? Because most field inspectors are given heavy tools that can be slow to operate and provide inaccurate results.
Thermo Fisher Scientific’s (Tewksbury, MA) Niton XL5 Plus gives these employees a versatile elemental analyzer that provides real-time insights to guard against potentially dangerous scenarios. The smallest and lightest handheld x-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzer on the market, it weighs 2.8 pounds but provides lab-quality elemental analysis directly in the field.
Enhanced software and improved detector technology provide exceptional accuracy when analyzing both light elements and heavy metals. New protection that mitigates risk of damage to the detector window greatly increases durability, particularly in scrap metal settings where punctures from sharp objects is common. Operators can avoid costly repairs and enjoy extended product life.
