Rock Eval 6 Analyzer

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: RE6

The Rock-Eval 6 analyser is designed to increase the domain of application of the method, in the field of source rock characterisation (improved kerogen analysis and kinetic parameters) and in reservoir studies (tarmat location). The instrument is a completely automated device consisting of two micro-ovens which can be heated up to 850°C controlled by a thermocouple located in contact with the sample. An FID detector measures the H/C gas released during the pyrolysis while an on-line infrared cell is used to measure the quantity of CO and CO2 generated during pyrolysis and oxidation of samples. A new integrated software (Rocksix), supervises the analyser and allows an easy interpretation of the data.
