This U-tube pycnometer is used for determining the GOR of a live oil. It is based on a flow through vessel equipped with two needle valves and a burst disc. It is provided with a tare weight and calibrated volume. A predefined volume of lived oil sample is transferred into the pycnometer and the gas is released from the pycnometer to the gasometer by opening the valve slowly for determining the gas volume. The volume of flashed liquid remaining in the pycnometer is determined by measuring its weight and density. The GOR can then be derived.
