Breakthrough Technologies The GOLDD AdvantageThe Thermo Scientific Niton XL3t analyzer combines advanced electronics and materials technology with dynamic features and the most versatile x-ray tubes ever used in a handheld XRF instrument. When this power is harnessed to our groundbreaking GOLDD+ technology, it takes your analytical capabilities to a whole new level. The direct benefits to you include: real-time results, advanced light element analysis, and ultimate performance in our robust, proven design. From their extraordinary speed and precision to the integrated, tilting, color, touch-screen display and the customizable menus for ease of use, ergonomic Niton XL3t GOLDD+ analyzers are lightweight, ruggedly constructed, and fast.

What is the GOLDD advantage? GOLDD technology delivers vast improvements in sensitivity or measurement times as much as 10-times faster than conventional Si-PIN detectors, and up to 3-times more precise than conventional silicon drift detectors (SDD). We achieved this improvement by uniquely combining an improved Niton XL3t 50kV, 200 A x-ray tube, closely optimized geometry, and patented signal processing hardware and software. These advantages are coupled with our proprietary drift detector, one of the largest area drift detectors that is commercially available in a handheld XRF analyzer, providing you with superior performance in the form of faster analysis and lower detection limits. The final product is the Niton XL3t GOLDD+…

a more versatile and technologically advanced handheld XRF analyzer, designed without compromise to make you more successful.

The Instrument of ChoiceThe Niton XL3t GOLDD+ is the instrument of choice when you require extreme accuracy, precision, and ease of use, with its faster analysis, higher precision, and the ability to measure light elements without helium or vacuum assistance. It is the ideal instrument to:

Analyze metal alloys

Carry out mining exploration and mapping

Detect soil contaminants

Test electronics and consumer goods for prohibited substances

For example, the Niton XL3t GOLDD+ delivers a new level of productivity for scrap metal recycling, with the ability to sort aluminum, titanium, and bronze alloys, as well as achieve superior performance for tramp and trace element analysis. Further, in mining exploration, the instruments low detection limits allow you to identify anomalies near the averages naturally found in the earths crust, something previously not possible with handheld XRF. Similarly, you will experience improved detection limits for all elements in environmental applications, including target elements such as chlorine and sulfur in sediment, and arsenic in soil. The improved limits of detection put the Niton XL3t GOLDD+ on par with most laboratory grade systems used in testing consumer products for toxic elements. Additionally, you can achieve enhanced Mg-S performance with the optional He purge.
