KUT Tool


KUT tools supply information about the mineralogy of formations. The most frequently sources of natural radiation in the formations are Thorium, Uranium and Potassium; the gamma rays generated by different elements or elementary interactions have different energy levels.  The spectral Gamma Ray KUT tool can identify the source of a particular Gamma Ray by measuring their amplitude or energy level.  This way the tool can identify the amount of potassium, thorium, and uranium present in the shales and sands.
