Industries from mining and exploration to scrap metal recycling depend on fast, accurate elemental analysis. The Thermo Scientific™ Niton™ XL3t 950 GOLDD+ Mining Analyzer provides reliable, real-time data for sample identification and positive material identification for even difficult-to-analyze light elements, without helium purging or vacuum pumps. The Niton XL3t 950 GOLDD+ Analyzer delivers a feature-rich package enhanced with Geometrically Optimized Large Area Drift Detector (GOLDD™) technology for improved light element (Mg-S) analysis, the lowest limits of detection and fastest measurement times.
The Niton XL3t 950 GOLDD+ with Intergrated GPS hand-held XRF analyser enables fast acquisition of data for rapid delineation of ore boundaries and in-depth, quantitative geochemical analysis of metal concentrations for mine mapping, drilling programs and grade control, critically important for the efficient running of mining operations.
GOLDD Technology: When low detection limits and high sample throughput are critical, the Niton XL3t 950 GOLDD+ XRF analyzer delivers measurement times up to 10-times faster than conventional Si-PIN detectors and up to 3-times more precise than conventional smaller silicon drift detectors (SDD) – without helium purge or vacuum.
Mining Exploration: Fast, accurate analysis of light elements. Identifies anomalies near the averages naturally found in the earth’s crust. Facilitates advanced exploration and soil analysis, concentrate measurement, ore blending, precious metal identification and lab analysis prequalification.
Environmental: Detects contaminants such as chlorine and sulfur in sediment and arsenic in soil. Identifies environmental hazards in residential, commercial and industrial settings, such as toxic drywall.
