Lab for Grain-Size Analysis

Methods, equipment, and applications

(1) Separation and gravimetric quantification of grain-size fractions using classical methods.

(2) Grain-size determinations using Laser particle analysis Mastersizer 2000 (Malvern)
Measurement of particle distribution over 100 grain-size classes of pre-treated sediment samples in aqueous suspension. Computation of volume-percentages for a lower number of arbitrary grain-size classes.

(3) Density determinations of the solid sediment and measurements of sediment porosity. Helium-Pycnometer AccPY 1330 (Micromeritics)
