Rock Crushing Laboratory (RCL)

Facility/equipment: Facility

    Equipments Details


    Research Facility, Drummond Street.

    This lab provides rock crushing from gravel to sand size particles using a disk mill, principally for the initial preparation of rock samples for cosmogenic nuclide analysis. Sieving of crushed rock and sediment samples is caried out to obtain desired grain size for cosmogenic nuclide analysis or for other purposes.

    Separation of magnetic minerals is accomplished using the Frantz magnetic separator.

    A rotating sample splitter is used to get equal and representative splits of sand samples, which is necessary for 36Cl analysis.
