The Niton XL3t is a portable X-ray fluorescence spectrometer. It is used in many industries that require fast, accurate, non-destructive elemental analysis right on site. Fast, lightweight and rugged, it combines advanced technologies and features for greater versatility in the portable XRF market. XL3t can analyze up to 29 elements from Magnesium (Mg) to Uranium (U) as well as the light elements Al, Mg, Si, P and S. With its GOLDD+ SSD detector, industries’ analysis capabilities are taken to a whole new level. Designed for ease of use, the Niton XL3t analyzer features a tiltable touch screen with customizable menus.


Fast elementary analysis anywhere

The Niton XL3t portable XRF analyzer meets the needs of many industries requiring rapid, accurate, non-destructive elemental analysis. It provides accurate results on the chemical composition of elements and is battery operated for on-site inspections.

Analysis of light elements

With the GOLDD+ SSD detector, analysis results can be up to 10 times faster than analyzers with a Si-PIN detector
analyzers equipped with a Si-PIN detector and up to 3 times more accurate than instruments equipped with a conventional SDD detector. Lower detection limits for greater versatility.

Versatile to meet a variety of analytical challenges

The performance of Niton XL3t solves analytical problems in many areas. It is particularly relevant in the following applications:

  • identification of metals & alloys in scrap metal
  • analysis of catalytic converters
  • thickness measurement of surface treatments
  • analysis and mapping of polluted soils
  • analysis of ores
  • archaeometric analysis
  • plastics control and D3E sorting
  • RoHS
