Calcimeter Apparatus

This apparatus measures the calcium carbonate (calcite) and magnesium carbonate (dolomite) content in drilling cuttings. The test is based on the reaction between calcite and dolomite with hydrochloric acid and consequent carbon dioxide emission. The formation of carbon dioxide increases the cell pressure which is measured by an accurate pressure gauge. The calcite to dolomite content of the unknown sample aids in determining which chemical treating program to implement. The entire test procedure requires 15 to 30 minutes for both calcite and dolomite determination.
