A high throughput dedicated core plug and sidewall core X-ray CT system. Up to 100 core plugs or sidewall cores can be scanned per day with a cubic voxel resolution of c. 80 microns. PlugXcan utilises a long lifetime closed 130 kV X-ray source, a large flat panel detector, and motorised object positioning to optimise resolution between 40 um and 250 um. Multiple core plugs (up to 8 ) are securely mounted using a Geotek “QuickFix” holder for stable and automated scanning.
PlugXcan data compared with Medical CT data
PlugXcan Benefits and Applications
Fast (2-3 minutes per plug) scanning to enable scanning of all core plugs/sidewall cores
Superior image resolution and sensitivity compared to medical CT data for core plugs/sidewall cores
Multi-core plug/sample compatible for high throughput and low operator input and faster scanning compared to dedicated micro-CT system
Identify heteogenities or structure to determine quality and test suitability for each sample ahead of SCAL etc
Multiple scans of the same core plug for quality assurance before and after sample preparation
Medical CT System Comparison
Compared to a standard medical CT system, PlugXcan offers more resolution, greater sensitivity, and improved contrast without the sacrifice of throughput.
