FIL Instruments

The fluid inclusion laboratory in the Bruneau Centre for Research and Innovation consists of a Linkam THMSG600 heating freezing stage, mounted on an Olympus BX51 microscope outfitted for use with reflected- and transmitted-visible and ultraviolet light using 4x, 10x, 40x and 100x Olympus long-working distance objective lenses. This system allows phase transitions to be observed in fluid inclusions over the temperature range of -193 to + 600°C. Digital images of fluid inclusions are captured using an Olympus DP71 camera. Linkam THMSG600 heating freezing stage and Olympus BX51 microscope purchased by Pan Atlantic Petroleum Systems Consortium (PPSC). Rock thin sections and doubly polished fluid inclusion wafers are prepared at Memorial University.
