Metallurgists and researchers in steel manufacturing need scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) data for failure analysis and process improvement. The Thermo Scientific Phenom ParticleX Steel Desktop SEM is a multi-purpose desktop SEM enabling failure analysis and automated characterization of non-metallic inclusions in steel.
Steel inclusion analysis
This versatile solution for high-quality imaging and elemental analysis of steel samples provides the data needed for today's efficient production of high-value steels. Rapid, easy analysis allows you to quickly respond to customer claims of faults, failures, etc., while the automated steel inclusion analysis provides you insight into the steelmaking process.
The Phenom ParticleX Steel Desktop SEM needs only standard wall power, allowing it to extend the capabilities of analytical labs without infrastructure changes. The integrated EDS enables users to simply click-and-go to work with elemental mapping and line scan, which shows the quantified element distribution in a line plot.
Ease of use
The user interface is based on the proven ease-of-use technology applied in the successful Phenom Desktop SEMs. The interface enables both existing and new customers to quickly become familiar with the system with a minimum of training. The high brightness of the unique CeB6 source aids in capturing high image detail as well as rapid automated analysis of steel inclusions.
Building on years of experience in steel inclusion analysis, default classification rules and analysis recipes allow users to quickly capture valuable data.
While the default classification rules and analysis recipe allow you to quickly get started with steel inclusion analysis, the classiifcation and recipes are fully customizable. This allows you to capture new insights in updated recipes
