DMT CoreScan – High Tech Core Logging System

The DMT CoreScan system is a high-tech core logging system, which enables scanning of drill core, the creation of a digital drill core library (drill core data management) and qualitative and quantitative structural analysis using high-quality images. The system comprises the drill core scanner DMT CoreScan 3, the UV fluorescence imaging device DMT CoreScan UV, as well as the analyzing software and database DMT CoreBase (

DMT CoreScan3: The high tech core logging system

The DMT CoreScan generates high-resolution, full circumference images of drill core samples. Furthermore, drill core or even an entire core box can be scanned in the plane mode resulting in a detailed overview image. It produces optical images in true color with a resolution of up to 10 pixel/mm (254 dpi), details up to 40 pixel/mm (1016 dpi).

DMT CoreScan UV is a new additional UV fluorescence imaging tool for the established DMT CoreScan system. Using this integrated feature makes it easier to analyse drill core e.g. for the distribution of mineral oil or fluorescent minerals such as scheelite.

The configuration of the portable stand alone devices is designed for rough environments and is extremely user-friendly to handle.
