Automatic Imbibiometer

Automatic Imbibiometer

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: AUTOIMBIB

The imbibiometer is an automated system that performs and monitors spontaneous imbibition and drainage processes, on up to ten rock samples simultaneously. Fluid production data collected during the experiment allows the determination of expelled fluid volumes, hence saturation. Ten Amott cells containing saturated samples immersed in the displacing phase are placed on a fixed stand where a high-resolution camera mounted on a linear actuator automatically tracks the position of the fluid interfaces. The water/oil interface height in each burette is incrementally recorded in the computer at specified time intervals. The corresponding volume is automatically calculated by a Vinci proprietary software. Video retrieval facilities permit an accelerated visualization of the processes. Moreover, an isothermal air bath can be integrated into the apparatus to warrant high-temperature experiments.

FEATURES:

Temperature: ambient (model AT) and up to 120°C (model HT)
Number of core samples: 10
Readable burette volume: up to 20 cc (other upon request)
Fluid volume accuracy: 0.05 cc
CDD color camera: 5 Megapixels
Lighting: 20 watts
Power supply: 110-220 VAC 50/60 Hz

BENEFITS

* Easy to operate
* Improve accuracy of the reading thanks to a high accuracy camera
* Save operator’s time which does no longer need to manually record the readings.
* Allow for imbibition test retrieval in an accelerated mode.
