Recombination Cell Apparatus

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: RCA-1000

The RCA 1000 instrument is based on a high pressure, high temperature recombination cell in which oil and gas solutions are injected at pre-defined volume, stirred together, heated at a desired temperature and pressurized at pressure above the saturation pressure for few hours to give a homogeneous mixture of the reservoir fluid. The instrument comes with an recombination cell jacketed with an heating mantel for temperature control , a magnetic driven stirrer, a motorized rocking system used in conjonction with a mixing ring in the sample chamber of the cell for proper agitation of the heavy oil samples and a temperature and pressure display panel. The top of the cell is equipped with a bull's eye window to visualize the saturation pressure.

Wetted material : Stainless steel, viton
Pressure accuracy : 0,1 % FS
Temperature accuracy : ± 0.5 °C
Power supply : 220 VAC 50 Hz

  • Very fast recombination operation due to the magnetic driven stirrer
  • The motorized rocking system with the mixing ring in the sample chamber provides an efficient agitation for the heay oil samples
  • Bull’s eye window for dew point and bubble point detection
  • Versatile as it can be used for oil and gas condensates thanks to its rocking system
