Recent Sale of Portable Scanning Force Microscope (P-SFM) to a Power Utility in Asia
ETD’s portable Scanning Force Microscope (SFM) has recently been purchased by an Asian power utility. After ETD’s initial R&D work for the client followed by the successful study and life assessment of P91 components in the client’s plants, the utility engineers and managers decided that it was an investment worth making. This success comes after a similar purchase earlier by CRIEPI in Japan.
SFM’s electronics has now been made more compact and the new model can be powered by solar charged battery so no need to connect SFM to electricity mains and the use of long electricity cables causing safety issues.
