Thus in this clinker is present in a large amount is not metabolized anhydrite
(d = 3,50; 2,85 [Angstrom]).
The dolomitic part of K1 is characterized to be mudstone, mudstone to packstone, beige, moderately hard to hard, crystalline to cryptocrystalline, have occasional pelloids, pebbles and shell fragments, have local mudcracks in mudstone, slightly argillaceous in parts, have thin layers of anhydrite
and o have good to fair vuggy and intercrystalline porosity.
On the other hand, it is observed that a certain quantity of anhydrite
still remains in the sample of A1 and A3, even after 180 days of hydration, which can be related to the presence of anhydrite
insoluble in these ashes.
has been noted by Cummings (1987) as rare, but no specimens attributable to the Fanwood quarry have been seen by the author.
Since the comprehensive studies on swelling of sulphate-bearing rocks were published by Sahores (1962) it has been generally accepted that two uncoupled mechanisms occur when anhydritic-gypsiferous claystones are soaked: (i) a short term "physical swelling" --due to the expansion of clayey host matrix--, and (ii) a long term "chemical swelling"--due to the transformation of anhydrite
into gypsum in an thermodynamically open system, with a volumetric increase of approximately 62%, as shown in figure 1.
Another common feature from the upper part of the Eel Bed is nodular anhydrite
with 5-30 mm long blebs, whose lower sides are always lined with dark algal mats.
Sulphate minerals are limited to gypsum and small amounts of anhydrite
(XRD), although some celestite was also observed in the petrographic examinations.
It is not always possible to avoid excavating cavities near anhydrite
concentration is somewhat lower in PF-ashes, being highest in electrostatic precipitator ones.
And they did not contain anhydrite
, a common vent chimney mineral that dissolves in seawater at temperatures less than about 150[degrees]C (302[degrees]F).
The unit is recognized as a formation, the Bass Islands Dolomite, in the subsurface, where it is defined as the interval suprajacent to the uppermost anhydrite
of the G unit of the Salina and subjacent to the Silurian-Devonian unconformity.
Black smoker chimneys precipitate copper-iron sulphides and anhydrite
on mixing with ambient temperature sea water, while lower temperature hydrothermal flows (typically 260-300 [degrees] C) precipitate iron-zinc sulphides and silica.
