Soil Analysis with Thermo Scientific Portable XRF Analyzers

The identification and remediation of environmental contaminants is a major, costly challenge worldwide. From hazardous site modeling and risk assessment to on-site contaminant screening, the ability to collect and efficiently analyze thousands of samples in situ is a fundamental requirement. Accuracy and speed are imperative; relying solely on off-site testing labs can be time consuming and expensive.

Screening for On-Site Environmental Hazards Made Easy, Efficient, and Cost Effective

Now there is a better solution that provides near real-time results – Thermo Scientific portable XRF analyzers, including the handheld Thermo Scientific Niton XL2 and Niton® XL3t Series, both available with Thermo Scientific GOLDD technology. Chosen by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other leading regulatory organizations, these analyzers allow users to perform rapid, on-the-spot screening for accurate elemental identification with the simple pull of a trigger. Lightweight and ruggedly built for virtually any field environment or weather condition, users can easily detect and measure RCRA metals, priority pollutants, and U.S. EPA target analytes. Users get near instantaneous, legally-defensible results for fast decision-making at significantly less cost than off-site laboratory testing.

Thermo Scientific portable XRF analyzers have a standard analytical range from sulfur (S) to uranium (U), plus light element analysis (magnesium (Mg), aluminum (Al), silicon (Si), phosphorus (P), and S). These breakthrough instruments can help users identify elemental concentrations from the most subtle anomalies at unprecedented low levels to high levels of contaminated soil, on-site, in seconds. They are the ideal tools for measuring elemental concentrations in soils and sediments and comply with US EPA Method 6200. Additionally, they fit the industry standard for site characterization, on-site clearance screening, soil stabilization, and remediation quality control. Users achieve on-the-spot results for a range of environmental and soil testing applications:

  • Elevated blood lead (EBL) investigations
  • Site assessment
  • Emergency response site-remediation
  • Brownfield remediation
  • Occupational safety and health (OSHA) compliance

With Thermo Scientific portable XRF analyzers, you obtain instant, nondestructive data in-situ, significantly reducing cost, time, and labor, and allowing prompt decision making.
