Shell, Fraunhofer Gesellschaft, Procon X-Ray GmbH
The innovative vertical CT-scanner developed by Shell, is the largest of its kind in the world. It enables a highly detailed 3D visualization of drilling cores up to 3 meter, while fluids run through the rock. The x-ray source can rotate around the core, visualizing the inside of the material and the interaction with the present liquid at a nanometer scale. It is the only vertically placed CT-scanner where x-ray rotates around the object.
