Oceanscan invests in XRF instrumentation


Oceanscan, with its fierce commitment to provide both its loyal and new client bases with the best solutions in the marketplace, has recently invested in Niton XL2 GOLDD Analysers – a performance-leading solution from a pioneer in hand-held XRF instrumentation. The use of an XRF analyser in applications can abolish costly alloy mix-ups, reduce downtime and improve safety.

Positive material identification is vital in a wide range of processes, including weld testing, contamination testing of soils and airborne particulates, mining, analysing consumer goods for traces of harmful substances and the analysis of precious metals. The oil, gas and petrochemical sector is, however, one of the most demanding markets for component quality.

In the current economic climate, the sourcing of components and subassemblies is very important as the need for cost reduction rises. With the introduction of Oceanscan’s new ‘price match promise’, customers can be assured that results are maximised with aså little cost to them as possible.

The Thermo Scientific Niton XL2 GOLDD analysers provide many distinct advantages, including light element detection (Mg, Al, Si, P, S) without helium purge vacuum, a rugged design for real-world industrial environments and near immediate results from turn on. The device offers premier performance and advanced electronics, whilst maintaining point-and-shoot simplicity and accurate results.

By investing in this increasingly popular inspection method, Oceanscan is now able to provide its customers with a tool to produce a quick and accurate result. The portability of the analysers, weighing less than 2 kg, and the full-colour touchscreen also mean the equipment can be used with ease by the operator.

Thermo Scientific stated: “You can be confident that the Niton XL2 GOLDD won’t misidentify value, grade or residuals.” To find out more about how the Niton XL2 GOLDD can be used in your specific project requirements, contact Oceanscan’s rental team by email to: rental@oceanscan.co.uk or tel: +44 (0)1224 707000.
