Mining Fibrescope

Mining Fibrescope in use

Mining fiberscopes are for use in colliery roof and floor control. Inspect roof and floor lithology, crack patterns, fracturing and rock types using the high resolution fibrescope technology.

The mining fiberscopes are constructed for tough industrial handling, comprising of five layers of protective coverings. Stainless steel, nylon, PVC & silicon protect the fiber bundle from external damage and ingress of water or dust. The sheathing offers excellent resistance to crushing, over bending and stretching. The fiber bundle itself represents state of the art in fiber technology with a unique single fused quartz fiber made up of thousands of individual image points or pixels all having a diameter of just 3 microns. Schoelly mining scopes can also be built to your desired custom length and diameter depending on your application, we recommend a standard 14mm diameter with proven robust construction.
