Filter paper samples which are often used for filter residue analysis and asbestos analysis must be mounted firmly and flat into the SEM system for correct analysis. As filter paper is a delicate sample material, mounting these samples without the use of an insert can lead to folding and damaged samples. The use of traditional, often highly sticky, carbon tape prevents the sample to be re-used for future analysis. The filter insert for the Phenom XL is available in two models which support 47mm (1.85”) and 25mm (1”) filters, which means the Phenom XL can accommodate the most common filter paper sizes.
The filter insert for the Phenom XL is available in two models:
- 9x 25mm (1”) diameter sample
- 4x 47mm (1.85”) diameter samples
