Test/Measurements Systems & Setups

 

Core Flooding System

The Core Flooding System is configured for the measurement of permeability and capillary pressure, and for liquid/liquid gas/liquid displacements under the conditions of overburden pressures up to 1,000 psi and temperatures up to 150°C (300°F) with Viton sleeves.

Automated data acquisition and logging of pressures is controlled by the Labview software. Constant temperature is provided by a convection oven. A high pressure ISCO pump delivers the displacement fluid at various flow rates.

HP-HT CO2 Injection Test System

 
 

The High Pressure High Temperature Test System is used for CO2/miscible gas injection under up to 4,000 psi and 232°C (450°F). It consists of high pressure vessels connected to pumps and cylinders and can be used for static or dynamic high pressure solvent injection tests. A DAQ system makes it possible to read temperature and pressure values.

Steam Injection Test System

This system is designed for high temperature steam experiments. The setup consists of a steam generation unit and a high pressure vessel that contains the main sample under test. A DAQ system is also attached to monitor pressure and temperature.
