The Chemical Lab of Department of Mining and Geology is equipped with following state of the art facilities:

Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (PerkinElmer- USA)

This instrument is used for analysis of metal ions like Nickel, Silver, Zinc, Chromium, Lead, Manganese, Titanium, Gold, Copper, Calcium, Magnesium, Aluminium, Sodium, Potassium, Iron, Silicon, Strontium, Molybdenum






Any solid sample can be crushed and pulverized to 10-50 micrometer size.

The following sieves of ISO standard are available in the laboratory. 40 µm,  45 µm,  50 µm, 60 µm,  63 µm,  75 µm, 100 µm, 125 µm, 150 µm, 180 µm, 200 µm, 250 µm, 180 µm, 200 µm, 250 µm, 300 µm, 500 µm, 600 µm,1 mm, 1.18mm, 1.7 mm, 2 mm, 2.36mm, 2.8mm, 3.35mm, 4 mm.

Particle Size Analyser

The quality of clay can be categorised by chemical as well as physical method. Particle size of clay is a significant parameter in characterization. A complete characterization of clay can be made only with the help of "Particle Size Analyzer".

The department is equipped with particle size analyzer of make "Sympatec GmbH, Germany, capable of measuring particle size from 0.1 microns to 1750 microns in wet mode.
