Helium Porosimeter

Helium Porosimeter



Porosity is a fundamental parameter in calculations of volumetric oil in place, as well as predicting flow rates in given reservoir zones. It is used in scale-up models, leading to estimates used in treatment facility design. The PDP-300® porosimeter is an automated system designed to measure a sample’s grain volume and calculate its porosity, grain density, and bulk density in a few simple steps.
