Lime / Dolomite / Gypsum Testing
APAL can analyse your lime, dolomite and gypsum to determine how it measures up with desired mineral content. APAL tests your lime, dolomite or gypsum samples for calcium, magnesium and sulphur content. With gypsum analysis, the percentage purity is then derived from the sulphur analysis. As lime and dolomite also have a sieve analysis, the report includes both Total Neutralising Value(TNV) and Effective Neutralising Value(ENV).

Why test?

  • A full report provided by APAL includes comments comparing the sample with the desired mineral content, as well as test parameters for the various industry accepted grades for soil amendments
  • Determine the quality of your sample and the ideal rate of application.

Multiple sieve fractions are available to meet your local guidelines. Example: Victoria 0-300µm, 300-850µm, >850µm. Western Australia 0-125µm, 125-250µm, 250-500µm, 500-1000µm, >1000µm.
