Flow-Through Solid Detection Cell

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: FTC Series

The FTC series cells are designed to be used with the Vinci SDS system to measure solid deposits such as asphaltenes and wax under realistic flowing conditions, i.e. pressure, temperature and shear. The cells are mostly used in deposition flow loops to investigate the effects of flow rate, inhibitor concentration, temperature and pressure on solid deposition. The cell consists of a high pressure hollow cylinder equipped with inlet and outlet axial ports to let the fluid flow and two lateral ports to mount the optical fibers of the SDS system.
