The density cell handles reservoir fluids at pressures up to 10 Kpsi and temperatures up to 175 °C. The principle consists of transferring the sample into the cell at reservoir conditions and weighing the cell filled up with the sample using an high resolution balance. The density of the sample is calculating by simply dividing the weight of the sample (i.e. weight of the filled cell minus weight of the evacuated cell ) by the known volume of the cell. This method provides reliable, correct and repeatable measuring results under extreme conditions. The resolution of the density measurement mainly depends on the balance used. Combined with a balance with a weighing measure accuracy of 1 mg the maximum resolution of 0.0006 g/cm3 can be acheived.
