VXCT: Vertical X-ray CT System
The Geotek VXCT system acquires both 2D X-ray transmission images and 3D X-ray CT volumes from lined whole core and, where stable, split core sections.
Automated rotation of lined core sections allows users to visualise and record three-dimensional structures within the cores. These rotational images are used for computed tomographic (CT) reconstructions. X-ray CT imaging provides valuable quantitative data as well as information about core quality for sub-sampling or further analyses.
