Minerals

Description

mineral-calorymetry

General thermal characterization of minerals (clays, feldspars, gypsum, …) is necessary to understand their structure or change of structure with time and structure. It can for example lead to key information for the understanding of the formation of geological layers.
Valorisation of widely available minerals also often require thermal processes that need to be understood and optimized thanks to thermal analysis data (ex: in the cement industry).

The effect of minerals in the field of oil or natural gas extraction is also of key interest, especially in the oil shale or shale gas activities or in the carbon dioxide sequestration field.
SETARAM instruments offer outstanding possibilities for the study of crystal structure, phase changes, valorisation, fossil fuel extraction, CO2 sequestration.
