MicroCT Coreholders

Coreholders for MicroCT Applications

RS Systems design and manufacture a variety of coreholders for microCT applications.  These coreholders are frequently made and individually adapted to fit requested specifications from our clients. Typical materials used for these X-ray transparent coreholders are:

  • Aluminum
  • PEEK
  • Carbon Fiber
  • Beryllium

Maximum working pressure and temperature varies between the different types of coreholders and materials used, but this can be as high as; Pmax = 500 bar @ T = 100oC

Examples of MicroCT Coreholders from RS Systems:


Hassler type with three inlet and three outlet ports plus overburden port at both ends.  Different flow paths can be arranged.


Base design core holder for microCT purposes. Inlet, outlet and overburden ports are at the base of the body, ensuring simple mounting and a minimum of conflict with the X-ray scanner.  Flow lines 1/32" or 1/16" port type and configuration.


Coreholder designed for good X-ray transparency with electrically insulated floating pistons.
