CRAIC Technologies launch GeoImage™ for petrographic analysis

GeoImage™ is the latest Vitrinite Reflectance Measurement System from CRAIC Technologies and is used to determine the grade of coal and coke by vitrinite reflectance as per the ISO 7404-5 and ASTM D2798 standards. These procedures ensure that coal blends used in energy generation and steel making are optimal and consistent from batch to batch.

Designed for use with petrographic microscopes, GeoImage™ can also be used in conjunction with CRAIC’s microspectrometers to also acquire reflectance and fluorescence spectra of coal samples, and take high resolution colour images too.

GeoImage™ also features an automated point counting module where hundreds of points are measured on the sample. Using statistical data analysis, the amount of vitrinite* in the coal blend, its thermal maturity and thus its energy content can be quickly determined.

* Vitrinite is a maceral of coal and is comprised of various polymers, cellulose and lignin. Measuring the amount of light reflected by vitrinite macerals is a key test to determine the thermal maturity of the coal blend and its suitability for steel production. The procedure has been standardised by a number of international bodies including both ISO and ASTM.

 

 

 

 

 


TimePro™ and FilmPro™ introduced by CRAIC

CRAIC Technologies has developed software to measure time-dependent changes of microscopic samples in full UV-VIS-NIR reflectance, absorbance and emission spectra.

The new CRAIC TimePro™ Kinetic Spectroscopy package is designed to be used with Lambdafire™ software equipped CRAIC Technology microspectrophotometers. CRAIC TimePro™ allows the user to monitor changes in the spectra over time, providing a unique and valuable tool for chemists and biological researchers.

CRAIC FilmPro™ is a film thickness measurement software package developed for CRAIC microspectrophotometres equipped with the Lambdafire™ software. It allows the user to rapidly measure the thickness of thin films and analyse many materials on both transparent and opaque substrates. It is ideal for determining the thin film thickness on semiconductors, MEMS devices, disk drives, flat panel displays, and more. This powerful and flexible software can be used in many different fields and in everything from research to industrial settings.
