DMT’s CoreScan UV is an ultraviolet fluorescence imaging tool. Its main application is the imaging of oil bearing drill core under UV light, a routine core analysis operation in the field of oil and gas exploration. It can, however, also be used for the exploration of fluorescing minerals, such as scheelite.
The brand new device complements the existing DMT CoreScan system by producing images using UV and white light, an application that can also be used on whole core, slabbed core or core in core boxes.
The maximum image dimensions of the CoreScan UV are identical to those of the main system. The CoreScan UV can be operated as a standalone device or in connection with a CoreScan3. Both devices fit into the same transport box, which acts as a dark chamber for the UV device. It is fully mobile and can be moved to and off site easily.
