Bubblepoint Pressure Apparatus

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: BPP70 Series

Surface liquid samples are validated in the PVT lab by measuring the sample’s bubblepoint pressure in particular. One of the most important quality checks performed on such samples consists in verifying that the measured bubblepoint pressure matches the pressure of the separator recorded during the sampling operations. The BPP 70 apparatus has been designed to measure the bubblepoint pressure of separator oil at separator temperature. A flash liberation test is performed on the homogenised sample to determine the bubblepoint pressure by analysing the recorded pressure-volume response at separator temperature. The apparatus can be configured with one or three sample cells.
