Thermo Scientific portable analyzers can be used in the exploration and mining of a wide variety of base metals, precious metals, rare earth elements, mineral fuels, industrial minerals, and gas-bearing strata samples.
From the superior performance of our Thermo Scientific Niton FXL Field X-ray Lab to our handheld Thermo Scientific Niton XL3 Series, we offer advanced in-situ geochemical analysis of a wide variety of samples including outcrops, direct soils, direct rocks, cuttings, cores, and prepared samples (bags, pellets, cups). Process innovations include:

Speed: Our portfolio of portable XRF analyzers offer real-time analysis capabilities to enable quick decisions, including whether to drill or not to drill, equipment relocation considerations, where to focus on the grid, and when to take a proper sample for laboratory analysis.

Real-Time Reporting: Field analyses provide for faster delineation of drill targets for timely operational and financial reporting back to management and/or investors.

Increased Sample Density: Running more assays in the field allows for finer grid resolution and the ability to send prequalified samples to an off-site laboratory. With improved statistics, this high-density analysis produces a more comprehensive picture of the target than the exclusive use of the traditional bag and lab method.

Take your lab with you
All Thermo Scientific portable XRF units feature a lightweight, compact design and operate reliably in harsh field environments. Our portable handheld analyzers can be operated directly in the field, or in a test stand for mobile laboratory use. Our field x-ray labs can be operated in the field on a tripod, in the back of a truck, or in on-site labs, providing a total sample testing solution.

Our analyzers feature sealed construction using tough LEXAN plastic, and are dust- and water-resistant for worry-free use virtually anywhere on-site. One-step system check requires no external accessories while advanced battery technology supports extended continuous operation on a single charge. All units feature a bright, color LCD screen.

Fast and easy to use
Portable XRF analyzers featuring GOLDD technology (Geometrically Optimized Large Drift Detector), provide faster measurement times and lower detection limits – up to 10-times faster than conventional Si-PIN detectors and up to 3-times more precise than conventional smaller silicon drift detectors (SDD).

Simply point and shoot the handheld analyzers, or place the sample in the Niton FXL field x-ray lab and close the lid to get a reliable reading in seconds. Unlike destructive testing methods, samples remain intact and undamaged. All portable analyzers easily accommodate a wide variation of samples, with little or no sample preparation, depending on the required accuracy.

For measuring samples of unknown chemical composition in which concentrations of light and heavy elements may vary from parts per million (ppm) to high percent levels, our XRF analyzers feature Fundamental Parameters (FP) calibration to simultaneously compensate for a wide variety of geometric effects, x-ray absorption, and secondary and tertiary fluorescent effects. This universal calibration requires minimal training and measures the full range of element concentrations in a wide variety of samples without any additional user input.

Portable XRF analyzers provide fast acquisition of geochemical data for rapid delineation of ore boundaries and the in-depth, quantitative analysis of metal concentrations for mine mapping. Lead times are reduced, which can be critical if the exploration season is short.
  • Early stage exploration: soil survey and outcrop evaluation
  • Advanced exploration and drilling: trend analysis to identify decreasing or increasing pattern of elements of interest which can help to make “continue” or “stop” drilling decisions onSTXsite, saving time and money
  • Ore deposit modeling/mapping
Quarry Operations
Quickly obtaining accurate exploration assay data to guide mining operations is one of the biggest obstacles to optimal productivity. Portable
XRF analyzers allow users to bring the lab to the field, avoiding lab turn around delays and costs. The ability to rapidly acquire and send XRF data to quarry laboratory and operations management personnel allows for easy collaboration and informed decisions.
  • General-purpose mine site analyzer
  • Provides an analytical alternative to busy labs
  • Reduce number of samples sent to the lab and send only pre-screened samples
Production and Mineral Processing
Fast, laboratory-grade sample analysis is made simple: test your samples on site with little or no sample preparation. Achieve the accuracy needed to provide defensible data for process control, quality assurance, and other operational decisions.
  • Grade control
  • Delineate ore and waste boundaries
  • Ore trading
  • Concentrate measurement
Oil & Gas Exploration & Production
Portable XRF analyzers are valuable for upstream exploration and production, offering rapid, on-site chemical analysis of rocks, cuttings, and cores that can be used for identifying formations and determining mineral composition of the rock. Users can infer mineralogical properties favorable to oil and gas production from data collected in real-time.
  • Advanced exploration and drilling
  • Mud logging
  • Mineralogy and lithology inference
  • Chemostratigraphy
Industrial Minerals
Portable XRF analyzers are an emerging instrument of choice for in-quarry exploration and evaluating the composition of raw materials such as phosphate, potash, gypsum, and limestone for industrial use.
  • Ideal for determining penalty elements in limestone, Fe ore, and bauxite
  • Blending and sorting of raw materials
  • Instantly flag grade, sub-grade, and waste, and prevent taking ore to the waste heap
