The retort kit allows you to measure the volume of water and oil released from a hydrocarbon-based mud sample when heated in a calibrated retort device. This section includes procedures for performing a retort analysis using either the volumetric or gravimetric method.
Cell volume (muffle): 10 ml.
It is applied according to:
