Determination of Carbonate Content in Sediments by Loss on Ignition

This method uses a muffle furnace to conduct a loss on ignition (LOI) analysis. LOI analysis provides a numerical estimate of carbonate content through the oxidation of sediments.

Fee includes sample preparation, data collection, data analysis, report generation and transmittal of data to customer. First sample in a request is charged the max rate, which includes equipment set-up, supplies and equipment tear-down. 

Cost: $31.00 for first sample, $10.00 for each additional sample.
