Chemical/Elemental Analysis – Niton (XRF)
Thermo Scientific Niton x-ray Fluorescence (XRF) Analysers
Saving time and money with in-situ analysis of samples is critical for today’s modern exploration and mining operations. The Niton range of portable hand-held XRF analysers are the choice for many mining and exploration companies, using chemical/ elemental analysis to provide lab-spec data in seconds, enabling immediate decisions either in the field or at the mine site including:
- Rapid delineation of ore/waste boundaries
- GPS synchronised soil sampling programs
- Direct analysis of drill core and cuttings
- Real-time assay directly at the mine face
- Grade control for stockpiles and identification of penalty elements
In all stages of exploration and mining quick decisions help maximise budgets, reduce re-mobilisation and identify drill targets quickly. With Niton GOLDD (Geometrically Optimised Large area Drift Detector) technology you will be able to analyse a range of base elements plus light elements (Mg, Al, Si, P, S) in air without the need for vacuum or helium purge for complete geochemical analysis.
Remarkable speed and performance will see improved value through faster results, better precision and lower detection limits for:
- Sediments, cuttings and cores
- Mill heads and tails
There is a Niton “gun” to suit your application from the value leading XL2 to our value performance leader the XL2 GOLDD or the top of the range XL3t GOLDD+. For absolute performance our Field-portable X-Ray Lab the FXL 959 GOLDD+ has a range of additional features more traditionally found in a lab based systems adding further value to your operations.
