Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Analysis
Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) analysis gives rapid quantitative analysis of broad mineral groups, including total clays. Analysis may be completed with minimal sample preparation and requiring a small sample size. Some calibration with XRD results of known samples from the well may be required.
X-ray diffraction analysis (XRD) is the gold standard for mineral quantification in the industry. XRD offers great accuracy and ability to speciate a wide range of minerals, including clays. Analysis turnaround for XRD with the Terra portable unit is 1 day or less, with around the clock interpretation capabilities.
