Equipment, Testing Capabilities, Applications:Testing equipment includes UTM (Universal Testing Machine) and Xeno test for measuring the characeristics of geotextiles as per ASTM standards. The equipment for testing the permeability of geotextiles is also installed and characterization by ASTM standards in in progress. Surface characterization is done using FT-IR Spectrophotometer and Scanning Electron Microscope. Analysis of coir pith is done using state-of- art equipments viz., Conductivity Meter, [C,H,N,S,O] analyzer, Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer, UV /Vis Spectrophotometer, HPLC, GC-MS and Colony Counter, Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC) and Thermo Gravimetric Analyzer (TGA). The lab is also equipped with Refrizerated Ultracentrifuge, Freeze Drier, BOD Incubators, Laminar Air Flow, Autoclaves, and Muffle Furnace.
