CRAIC Technologies CoalProII

Coal, kerogens and petroleum source rock are becoming increasingly important in the search for new sources of energy. The CoalPro II, now available through Elliot Scientific to the coal, oil and gas sector in the UK and Ireland, is the newest system from CRAIC Technologies for the optical analysis of vitrinite and other macerals commonly found in these materials.

One of the most important ways of grading the energy content of coal and petroleum source rock is to measure the optical reflectance of microscopic amounts of vitrinite, a maceral that comprises various polymers, cellulose and lignin. This key test determines its thermal maturity and therefore energy content, a procedure standardised by a number of international bodies including both ISO and ASTM. All of the standards require the use of a microscope photometer, a device designed to measure the intensity of light reflected from a microscopic sampling area, such as the CoalPro II.
