Abstract

An elutriator method has been developed to increase laboratory efficiency in making particle-size and mineralogical analyses of silt. The elutriator described quantitatively separates silts into three predetermined size fractions, which are clean and suitable for mineralogical analysis. To complete the particle-size analysis, sand fractions are determined by sieving and clay fractions are determined by the pipette method.
