USE SCANNING ELECTRON MICROSCOPE TO ANALYZE POWERPLANT MATERIALS

With high-magnification, high-resolution capabilities, the scanning electron microscope (SEM) can be a powerful tool for gaining microstructural information about the materials used in power plant boilers and auxiliaries. An associated analysis allows positive identification and mapping of sample elements. The theory underlying the SEM is explained, several applications that would be of interest to electric utilities are discussed, and the limitations of the instrument are noted.
