UK geology laboratory needed for clay testing for suitability for end uses as clay bricks, tiles, ceramics etc. Scope of testing to include:
An initial gradient firing on each borehole material (10 samples) to determine the firing temperature / colour related to each clay test piece after first milling to a suitable particle size range for clay brick manufacture.
Stage 2 work scope
The following tests will be carried out on the sample as received borehole material (10 samples):
· Particle size distribution - to be determined using both the sedigraph and dry sieving method, to cover the full size range of particles from millimetres to microns. The results would be collated to provide a full particle size distribution.
· XRF Analysis (with Loss on Ignition) - to be carried out to determine the bulk inorganic composition of the following 19 elemental oxides: SiO2, TiO2, CaO, MgO, K2O, Na2O, P2O5, Cr2O3, Mn3O4, ZrO2, HfO2, Al2O3, Fe2, PbO, ZnO, BaO, SrO, SnO2, CuO and SO3 (SO3 reported as remaining after loss on ignition fusion and is not for an accurate SO3 figure).
· Soluble Sulphate using Ion Chromatography on water soluble extract from each borehole.
· Total Carbon & Total Sulphur using the Leco total combustion technique to determine the percentage total sulphur and total carbon of each borehole material.
Stage 3 work scope
The following processing to take place on each borehole material to prepare fired specimens (5 samples selected after stage 2):
· Dried and Fired Shrinkages on five (5) appropriate prepared clay samples: to be tested for each borehole material to determine both the dried shrinkage from green state to after drying at 110 C, and shrinkage from being dried at 110 C to fully fired specimens. The firing temperature will be confirmed for each borehole material after the initial gradient firing.
· Water Absorption - on five (5) appropriate prepared clay samples: to be tested for each fired borehole material
· Summary Report - Summarizing all data with conclusions on the best materials for brick making, referencing typical brick properties.
· Fired samples retained to use as reference samples

EPA Environmental laboratory needed for bench-scale testing of a client?s wastewater treatment procedure. Client runs a metals finishing operation where they apply a chromate conversion coating to aluminum. Their wastewater is high in hexavalent chromium which they are able to remove by reducing it to Cr(III) and precipitating it as a hydroxide. Their current procedure seems to work well for this purpose. Recently they have been having some issues with high total cyanide results in their treated effluent, I suspect that the cyanide is coming from their chromating solution which contains potassium ferricyanide as an accelerant. Based on what I have read, the ferri- and ferrocyanide complexes can be difficult to treat since they are very soluble and are not amenable to chlorination. I did find some promising literature that suggests these complexes could be removed using activated carbon, and I am wondering if carbon could be incorporated into their existing treatment procedure somehow.
I am looking for someone to replicate their treatment procedure using samples of their waste, with and without the addition of carbon in order to see if this strategy will work. Their treatment procedure is relatively simple, and we would provide the carbon sample for testing.

assess the androgenic activity, in a quantitative fashion, of a single steriod with the trivial name tetrahydrogestrinone(THG) in a pilot scale study. Either an aquatic organism model or rodent model would appear adequate to provide the information desired but other potential testing types will be considered such as in-vitro receptor binding studies. The study should compare the relative androgenicity of THG to a reference compound such as testosterone
