Overburden Core Saturator

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: OCS-350

The overburden core saturator enables the end user to obtain remarkable saturation of cleaned and dry core samples under overburden pressure. The core sample is placed in a hydrostatic core holder under overburden pressure and evacuated by applying high vacuum for few hours. The liquid phase is then injected in the core sample using a HPLC pump up to 5,000 psi to assure complete saturation of the core. The same system can be configured with additional core holders if necessary.
