Optimization of manufactured products from natural materials

Since the Stone Age, we have been making things from rocks for use in our everyday lives - hand tools from stone for cutting up meat; bricks from stone, sand & clay for shelter; pottery from clay for cooking, water transport & storage. More recently, coal was used to drive the industrial revolution, and continues to be a major source of energy worldwide. Cement remains the main material with which to build large structures. With the environmental impact of coal burning and cement manufacturing becoming critical global issues, it is important that we continue to better understand how best to exploit these valuable natural resources.

Automated Mineralogy and Petrography Brochure

Automated Mineralogy & Petrography is a technology solution that images rocks. It provides valuable information on which minerals are present in a sample (mineralogy) and how they occur spatially (microtexture). Measurements are performed ultrafast and unattended (automated) to allow high sample throughput.

QEMSCAN 650F SEM for Minerals & MInining
A laboratory-based, automated petrography analyzer, initially developed for the mining industry, the FEI QEMSCAN 650F SEM serves mineralogy petrology and metallurgy use cases in a wide range of natural resources industries, including mining, oil and gas, and geoscience institutes.
MLA 650 SEM for Minerals & MInining
A laboratory-based, automated petrography analyzer, the FEI MLA 650 scanning electron microscope (SEM) was initially developed for the mining industry. It serves mineralogy, petrology and metallurgy use cases in a range of natural resources industries, including mining and geoscience institutes.

MLA 650F SEM for Minerals & MInining
A high-speed automated mineralogy analyzer widely used in the mining industry to optimize the performance of mineral processing operations, the FEI MLA 650F scanning electron microscope (SEM) reduces sample analysis turnaround time from days to hours, when compared to traditional automated mineralogy analyzers. This allows operators to increase metal recovery by responding faster and more frequently to changes in feed and waste stream mineralogy.
