DMT SlimBoreholeScanner (SBS)

The SBS is an ultra-slim optical borehole scanner with a diameter of only 23 mm for the rock mass inspection and characterization in underground mines and tunnels. Its lightweight and small-sized construction allows an easy application e.g. in anchor boreholes simply by hand. The explosion-proof, wireless and self-sustaining probe achieves high image resolution, which allows to determine parameters like discontinuity spacing, orientation, aperture, and degree of rock mass disintegration.
