PoroPerm System

PoroPerm System

Overview:

 

Our Modular Stressed PoroPerm System is built to meet your production or research facility needs and can used to perform the following based on system options chosen:

  • Miscible flow through sample cleaning
  • Vacuum saturation
  • Absolute liquid permeability
  • Direct pore volume measurement allows for determination of porosity
  • AC Resistance measurement @ 1kHz allows for determination of Ro, F, & m
  • Desaturation using porous plates
  • Axial strain as a function of stress
  • Radial strain as a function of stress
  • Qv determination by Co/Cw method

 

The standard system consists of:

 

  • Integrated safety shutdown mechanisms
  • 4 Quick load hydraulically balanced true isostatic core holders
  • 1 x continuous flow dual pump system for permeability measurement
  • .02% accuracy pressure transducers (1 x 0-10 psi and 1 x 0-100 psi) for permeability measurement
  • 2 x auto refill pumps for solvent cleaning (1 for solvent “A” and 1 for solvent “B”)
  • 1 x air powered confining pressure generator with confining oil reservoir
  • Saturation glassware
  • Vacuum pump with digital display
  • Ambient temperature standard (optional elevated temperature system available)
  • A rackmount control system housing:
    • Keyboard monitor, and mouse
    • PC with Windows 10
    • DAC system
    • Measurement Instrumentation
  • Real time data acquisition, process control software, graphical user interface with analysis tools

 

Standard system specifications:

 

  • Operating Temperature – Ambient
  • Confining Pressure – up to 10,000 psi
  • Pore Pressure – up to 100 psi
  • 1” D x 2.25” L or 1.5” D x 3.25” L sample capability dependent upon core holder size chosen

 

Customization and options:

 

The PoroPerm system is modular and can be increased from 4 to 8 or 12 cells. Only the base 4 cell unit comes with the rackmount DAC system, confining, permeability, and solvent cleaning pumps. The additional 4 cell modular units provide vessels, plumbing, and sensors only but can be customized at your request.

 

Available options:

 

  • Recirculating temperature control system includes:
    • Recirculating heater
    • Individual flow jackets for each vessel
    • 10 C – 80 C operating temperature capability
  • 4 cell standard expansion modules with
    • Core holders for either 1” D x 2.25” L or 1.5” D x 3.25” L samples
  • Axial strain LVDTs for real time measurement of sample length
  • Internal radial strain transducers for real time measurement of sample diameter
  • Automated confining pressure control system
  • 2500 psi pore pressure capability (up to 9500 psi if requested)
  • .008% accuracy pressure transducers for permeability measurements
  • Multiple pressure transducer ranges available
