Clay Preparation Laboratory
Clay Preparation laboratory is equipped with a full set of equipment allowing for separation and purification of clay fractions from a variety of samples (i.e. rocks, soils and sediments). The equipment includes magnetic stirring hot plates, high volume centrifuges, ultrasonic disintegrators and baths, freeze-drier, water baths, laboratory ovens, McCrome mils and many others. The lab is also equipped with a state of the art LB-1/L1-CN Magnetic Barrier Laboratory Separator , S.G. Frantz.
