XL2 basic

Metal analyser with an excellent price-performance ratio

Mobile X-ray fluorescence analyzer Niton XL2 basic

The hand-held XL2 basic is extremely well suited for almost any sorting tasks during the recycling of metals. Whether sheet metals, metal shavings or wires – the spectrometer allows for a fast, easy and non-destructive analysis of the composition of alloys. The analysis area includes the 25 most important elements from Ti to Bi. The display immediately shows material description and components.
The analyser is the ideal entry-level device with an excellent price-performance ratio. It is very easy to use. Chemical expertise and background knowledge are not needed. The robust device is made for continuous use under harsh environmental conditions.

Advantages of metal analysis with the XL2 basic

  • Fast and non-destructive analysis of metals.
  • Portable, suited for a flexible use on-site.
  • Precise, reliable results.
  • Data is encrypted and cannot be manipulated later.
  • Robust, waterproof, dust-protected.
  • Cost-effective entry-level device.

Areas of application
