Benefits for the customer

The mission of Petromodel
 

It is the mission of Petromodel Ltd to increase the benefit for the
customer and the community of the utilisation of sand, gravel and
crushed rock – the aggregates.

The use of the products and solutions of Petromodel Ltd gives
financial, marketing and professional benefits:

Daily testing instead of weekly/monthly/yearly.
Manyfold increase in output.
Better quality and process control.
Much better information for the customers.
Optimal use of the raw material for different products.
Much better inside knowledge of the raw material and of the products.

Particle Analysis with Petroscope 3D SIZE&SHAPE

• an attractive and efficient alternative to conventional screening

• results available in digial form immediately after analysis – not drying, no weighing, no typing in of handwritten results

• powerful report- und visualization tools – automatic report and result form generation, easy archiving

• mesh size calculated in 0.1-mm-steps – much more precise than conventional screening

• simple operation and fully automatic processing – reduce personnel costs, no chance for man-made mistakes during weighing

• high performance and typing – approx. 35 kg/h (for 8/50 gradation)

• additional information on particle shape without any additional effort

• use particle geometry and angularity information for estimation of shear parameters and elasticity

… precise description of ground layers in geotechnical reports

… to identify stratigraphic units

 

Analysis of attrition and fragmentation phenomena with Petroscope 3D SIZE&SHAPE

• analyse your rock sample before and after a direct shear test / triaxial test / LA test / Micro Deval test

• use the detailed information on particle size distribution, angularity and particle shape for an analysis of the attrition and fragmentation phenomena that occured in the course of the test

 

Analysis of test repeatability and test result deviations with Petroscope 3D SIZE&SHAPE

• use the detailed information on particle size distribution, angularity and particle shape for an analysis of result deviations that occur in the course of a test series

 

Generate 3D geometry data for numerical analysis with Petroscope 3D Size&SHAPE

• export functionalty for particle geometry: geometry data for every particle as xyz file or dxf; grid size and accuracy 0.1 mm

• easy and fast generation of input data for numercical calculations

• carry out your numerical analyses with real-world geometry data – no simplified geometry, no reduction to few reference objects

• allows for back-analysis of lab tests using the actual particle geometry of all particles involved – even for large samples

 

Classification of rock types with Petroscope COMPOSITION

• use spectral data for classification according to rock type. This allows for an analysis of…

• petrography and particle shape correlation

• trend analysis (analysis of time series) allows for…

• analysis of gradual changes of particle geometry, angularity, particle size distribution and petrography

 

Estimate mechanical properties of aggregates with TECHMODEL

• use your geometry and spectral data to estimate mechanical properties

• estimation of test results for lab tests like direct shear / triaxial / LA test / Micro Deval test

• carry out “virtual tests” – the real-world test is only necessary if the estimation yields a suspicious result

• decrease intervals of your quality control scheme

• use your geometry and spectral data to decide about possible applications for your samples

• helps to decide whether your sample is suitable as concrete aggregate
