AGICO Kappabridge MFK-1A

Multifunction Kappabridge: Setup for

Analytical performance:

  • Measurement of magnetic bulk susceptibility as function of variable field strength (200 to 700 mAm-1)
  • Determination of the anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility (AMS, 2. order tensor)
  • Measurement of magnetic bulk susceptibility as function of low temperatures (-196°C to 0°C)
  • Measurement of magnetic bulk susceptibility as function of high temperatures (20°C to 700°C)
  • Operating frequency: 976Hz
  • Sensitivity: 5x10-8

Sample types – bulk, field-dependent, AMS:

  • cubes: 23x23x23 mm (maximum)
  • hard rock samples (diameter: 1" = 25.4 mm; length: 22mm, maximum)
  • Sample types – low- and/or high-temperature runs: ca. 100 mg of powder

Applications:

  • Rock magnetic investigations of terrestrial, lacustrine or marine sediment sequences; or hard rocks.
