Geotech Logging Services LLC - Calcimetry

Calcimetry

For Calcimetry we use a pressure chamber with a known amount of powdered cuttings, and a known volume of HCl to determine the % of CaCO3 present in the cuttings sample. By using calcimetry during drilling, we can create a chart which will reflect geochemical changes in the formation lithology. Identifying these geochemistry changes are critical to zone marking for geosteering projects.
