MAGNETIC SUSCEPTIBILITY BALANCE MARK 1
The MKI Magnetic Susceptibility Balance displays results for the sample, R, and the blank tube, Ro, which are then used to calculate the mass susceptibility using the formula below. By using matched magnets and a printed circuit construction for the coil, balance to balance reproducibility is ensured.
Xg = Cl(R-Ro) / (10**9)m
Xg = mass susceptibility in c.g.s. units
C = calibration constant of the balance
I = length of sample in cm (1>1.5cm.)
m = mass of sample in gm
R = balance reading for sample in tube
Ro = balance reading for empty tube
The MK 1 Magnetic Susceptibility Balance has proven to be the ideal instrument for use in teaching laboratories throughout the world, where the reduced amounts of chemicals required for an experiment saves on material costs, and minimizes waste products disposal.
Compared with the traditional Gouy balance methods, the Sherwood Scientific MK 1 Magnetic Susceptibility Balance exhibits many advantages:
Applications of Magnetic Susceptibility measurements
As all substances exhibit magnetic properties it is possible to use magnetic phenomena to identify, differentiate and quantitatively measure components and contaminants in mixtures non destructively. Occasionally the magnetic susceptibility measurement offers a unique solution to a difficult analytical problem. We are happy to consider any new applications for the magnetic susceptibility balance.
Sherwood Scientific has been collecting and developing methods for many years and the following list illustrates the wide variety of possible applications;
