The Exploration, Mining and Petroleum (EMP) 2015 conference is being held from November 1st to 3rd this year in Fredericton, New Brunswick. EMP features an update on current industry and government activity in the province related to mining and petroleum, and attracts attendees from around the continent. This will be the first time that Thermtest has attended a conference related to geology, and we are excited for the new opportunities that brings.
Thermtest’s exhibition at EMP will focus on one of our portable instruments, the TLS-100 thermal conductivity/resistivity meter. This portable instrument is used to measure thermal conductivity/resistivity of soil, sediment and soft rock samples and conforms to ASTM standard D5334. The TLS-100 meter can measure samples with conductivity ranging from 0.1 to 5 W/mK, using a 120 second test time that accounts for isothermal drift. Reproducibility is typically better than 1%, while accuracy is better than 5%.
