Niton introduces portable analyzer for light elements.

The Niton Analyzers business unit of Thermo Electron Corp., Billerica, Mass., has introduced a portable analysis tool for light element content in alloys.

The company says the Niton XLt 898He "provides fast, laboratory-quality chemical analysis of light element content in aluminum and titanium alloys, as well as nickels, superalloys, stainless steels and more."

The interior of the XLt 898He's measurement head is filled with helium, which purges atmospheric air from the X-ray analysis path, allowing light element X-rays to contact the XLt's high-resolution X-ray detector. "As a result," according to Thermo, "Niton XLt operators can now confidently measure light element alloy content with the same analyzer that they use to test high-temp alloys--a feat previously impossible with a handheld, portable analyzer."

More information on the Niton XLt 898He is available online at
