Attrezzature /

Chemistry Laboratory Equipment:

  • Microwave system
  • WTW MultiLine P3 handheld meter. 
  • Six positions Milestone Microwave Laboratory System 
    MLS-1200 Mega 
  • Low (up to 200˚C) and high (up to 1300˚C) T furnaces

Research activity: 
Measurements of pH, conductivity and redox potential on water and 
soil samples; dissolution of solid samples with concentrated acids; 
L.O.I. determination and 
syntheses at controlled temperature of material science samples.


Grinding Laboratory Equipment:

  • Fritsch Analysette 6 planetary mill 
    (four positions with agate jars and balls) 
  • Automatic agate mortar 
  • Hydraulic press

Research activity: 
Rocks and soils samples are reduced for minerals separation or 
chemical treatment and further analysis.




Minerals separation Laboratory Equipment: 

Frantz & Carpco 

  • S.G. Frantz Company Inc isodynamic separator Model L-1 with 
    max current 1.5A, forward slope 20-40˚ and side slope 5-15˚
  • Carpco high-intensity wet electromagnetic separator Model 
    MWL3465 with 
    low range current 0-0.7A and high range current 0-6.0A
  • Stainless steel sieves (aperture from 4mm to 30µm)
  • Fritsch Analysette sieve shaker
  • Centrifuges for small (up to 50ml) and large (up to 100ml) 


Research activity:

Minerals are separated according to their size, magnetic susceptibility 
(exploiting either paramagnetic or diamagnetic properties) or density. 
For the latter, separating fennels and high density liquids are available: 
bromoform (CHBr3 with density 2,89 g/cm3) and 
diiodomethane (C2H2I2 with density 3,325 g/cm3).
