Application examples of our Sand Sedimentation AnalysesUpdated 06-Nov-10 04:10h
Our Analyzer can truly provide results that sedimentologists have come to expect from a century of using sizing methods (sieving, sedimentation etc.). Only sedimentation of sand-sized particles comes the closest to the sedimentation in nature, the ultimate goal.
|PSI sedimentation velocity & PHI grain size distributions of the original samples are valuable tools in:|
|Petroleum Geology||reservoir evaluation, enhanced recovery, heavy oil and tar sand production, basin analysis, stratigraphic correlation;|
|Civil Engineering||sediment transportation, coastal protection, soil mechanics;|
|Oceanography||coastal processes, marine sedimentation, tracing sand movement;|
|Quality Control of Natural & Synthetic Abrasives||diamond, corundum, silicon carbide, boron nitride;|
|Quality Control of Filter and Foundry Sands||results are consistently related to specific surface in contrast to sieve data;|
|Chemical Engineering||permeability control of sand filters in synthetic fiber production; etc..|
|Forensic Research & Analysis||Gaussian components of the MacroGranometer's sand size and sedimentation velocity distributions specify sand samples as small as 0.1 g, like finger imprints and DNA identify a person.|
PSI sedimentation velocity distributions of
narrow sieve fractions (each
consists of equal-sized grains)
can be shown as 3D-plots and/or converted into distributions of grain density or shape.
All are valuable tools in:
|MicroPaleontology||isolation of various micro-fossil groups (foraminifers, conodonts, etc.);|
|Prospecting for Heavy Mineral (Placer) Deposits||gold, platinum group minerals, rare earth minerals, diamond, titanium ores, tin ores (cassiterite), zircon, garnets.|
