Scanning Electron Microscope
The FEI QEMSCAN® scanning electron microscope (SEM) is a fully automated, non-destructive, micro-analysis system that provides rapid, statistically reliable and repeatable, mineralogical, petrographic and metallurgical data, from virtually any inorganic, and some organic, materials. It is used in the mining industry for mineral exploration, ore characterization, and mineral process optimization applications. The oil and gas industry utilizes the QEMSCAN SEM to reduce risk and improve extraction, based on knowledge derived from the micro-analysis of drill cuttings and cores. The coal industry is applying automated analysis of coal, pulverized fuel and coal combustion products, to better understand coal combustion and waste utilization.
