Gesteinslabor Dr. Eberhard Jahns has great expertise for all questions related to geomaterial testing.
The focus of our service is the conducting of rockphysical and rockmechanical laboratory experiments. Apart from the standard experiments for determining the rockmechanical characteristics, we are specialists in solutions to customer-specific requirements with individual, challenging test procedures.
We apply for many years now highest-level in testing technology, hence you can rely on our laboratory experience of standard and special solutions for your testing requirements. We would be happy to develope testing paths which match exactly your requirements and problem solutions.

Gesteinslabor receives funding grant for the development of a novel test rig to determine capillary threshold pressure with hydrogen
Gesteinslabor receives funding from BMWi for the development of a new test rig. With this funding, our company will open up a new business field in renewable energies by implementing an innovative technology to determine the capillary threshold pressure with hydrogen on cap rock of underground gas storage facilities.
