Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM)
Acuren has 3 laboratories with scanning electron microscopes (SEMs) for evaluation of materials and components. These SEMs are capable of magnifications up to 200,000x for exceptional image resolution and depth of field. Our microscopes are equipped with EDXA analyzers for simultaneous chemical analysis of the microscopic features.
Acuren’s engineers and microscopists use these microscopes to examine and document critical features of fracture surfaces, metal wear particles, corrosion deposits, air filter samples, and hazardous materials such as asbestos.
Our forensic analysis, product evaluation and root cause failure analysis are completed to the highest industry standards by using these SEMs.
