Handheld material analyzers

  • 30-Jun-2008 07:50 EDT


NITON XRF analyzers from Thermo Fisher Scientific are designed to provide accurate alloy material verification quickly and reliably. The tools provide immediate nondestructive chemical analysis of alloy materials from titanium to nickel superalloys, from castings to fasteners, dip switches to bearings, incoming raw materials to final product quality control. They also analyze high-temp nickel and stainless steel, and screen for the presence of prohibited materials such as tin, selenium, cadmium, and zinc in spacecraft applications—and lead, chromium, cadmium, bromine, and mercury for Restriction of Hazardous Substances compliance. Features include thermoelectrically cooled detector, 80-MHz real-time digital signal processor, dual embedded processors, tilting VIP color touch-screen display, customizable menus, and integrated Bluetooth, USB, and serial communications.
