Fast and efficient core loading for horizontal scanning
Cabinet Based System
System comes fully shielded, so no need for a lead lined room!
Long life X-ray Source
Closed and sealed, long life 130kV X-ray source
Large flat panel X-ray detector
Cores centralised by wirelessly controlled motorised arms that securely hold core samples horizontally. A range of arm attachments is provided to hold various core samples, hand specimens or even single boxes for analysis
Visualise a core’s internal structure with X-ray Imaging
Geotek’s ScoutXcan is an affordable X-ray scanning system which has the capability to produce 2D multi-angle X-ray radiographs from linear and rotational 2D imaging. Using Geotek’s geoscience-ready laminography acquisition method, the ScoutXcan can successfully identify pseudo 3D information from rock and sediment core samples without the need for full 3D CT. This makes it the ideal system is ideal for customers on a budget and that do not require full 3D CT imaging.

How it works
Samples are loaded horizontally into one of the cabinet arms inside of an X-ray tube and centralised by wirelessly controlled motorised arms. The core sample translates through the centre cabinet past a fixed source and detector position that the user has selected, and can be rotated under computer control to examine internal structures at various angles to give the user pseudo 3D information.
DATA ACQUISITION & SOFTWARE
The user is able to scan their core samples using various acquisition modes which may be selected prior to scanning: 2D radiography and laminography
Geotek X-ray acquisition software – allows the operator to set-up their scan parameters and acquire data with real-time visualisation.
Geotek GQuickView software – allows the user to view and manipulate the X-ray radiographs and CT slabs.
