Main features
General description

The Digital Gauge Calcimeter Kit + Magnetic Stirrer provides all of the necessary apparatus to perform easy and accurate field Calcimetery
The addition of the Magnetic Stirrer and Stir Bar allows for more convenient and accurate testing.
Calcimetery is used to determine the Calcite (Calcium Carbonate-CaCO3) and Dolomite (CaMg(CO3)2) content of a soil, oil well core or drill cutting sample.
The buildup of Calcite in drilling fluids and in water treatment processes can cause scaling issues. The data collected from Calcimetery testing aids in determining a suitable chemical treatment. The data collected also provides a host of other geological information.
The equipment for testing is somewhat fragile, expensive and not ideal of field testing applications.
The Gauge Model Calcimeter Kit mitigates many sources of error and introduces a simplified testing procedure which allows the user to perform the test with accuracy and ease.
The Digital Gauge Calcimeter Kit contains:
– Reaction Chamber (5” x 2.25”)
– Reaction Chamber Top (includes Luer Lock Valve, Pressure Release Valve,
Digital Pressure Gauge and Neoprene-O Rings)
– Reaction Chamber Stand
-Magnetic Stirrer
-1.25” Magnetic Stir Bar
-Luer Lock Syringe(s) 20ml and/or 60ml
-3” ASTM #100 Brass Sieve
-Digital Weighing Scale
-Stop Watch
-Sample Tray
-Laboratory Grade Hydrochloric Acid
-Laboratory Grade Calcium Carbonate
-User Manual
