Shale Test

Shale Test is dependent upon particle size, solids content, and settling rates of flocculation state. Thus, the instrument is adaptable for use as a control parameter for waste disposal facilities and for classification and qualification of soil types in geotechnical use, evaluation of soil/bentonite liners, and analysis of slurry trench fluids and drilling fluids. The Shale Test is ideal for use in the field as it operates on a single 9-volt battery which provides over 40 hours of use. A battery eliminator is supplied for laboratory use. The complete CST device consist of a timer unit, test head assembly with funnel, 9 VDC battery and battery eliminator (115 VAC), one box of filter paper, and instructions.
