NMR Rock and Soil Core Analyzer — Corona delivers accurate NMR measurements with flexibility over a wide range of core size and lithology.
Corona NMR measurements enable rapid quantification of fluid content and hydrogeologic properties including the total porosity, bound/mobile fluid fractions, pore size distribution, and permeability.
Corona Applications Include:
- Aquifer and Aquitard Characterization
- Moisture Analysis in Soil and Rock
- Bound/Mobile Cutoff Calibration
- Saturation and Drainage Dynamics
- Petrophysical Calibration
- Porous Media Dynamics
Corona’s unique design features allow robust measurements of hydrologic properties over a wide range of core size and lithology.
Maintaining laboratory precision, Corona’s lightweight and rugged design allows measurement in the field. With a mobile configuration, you can quantify water content and hydrological properties immediately after collecting samples.
Any Sample Size
Soil and rock cores come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Corona has interchangeable detection coils appropriate for different core diameters, and removable doors to enable continuous measurement of long undisturbed cores.
Low-Field for Magnetic Geology
Corona operates in a much lower field and with a higher relative bandwidth than other NMR analyzers, enabling more accurate measurement of water content in magnetically susceptible rocks
