Solids Detection System

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: SDS

This device is designed to detect when the organic deposition takes place, in other words it measures the onset conditions of live oil precipitation. The instrument is based on the transmittance of a low intensity laser light through fiber optic transmission probes mounted across a windowed cell. The instrument is composed of a laser windowed cell to connect the high temperature optical fibers used to emit and receive the laser signal through the oil sample., an optic source to generate the signal crossing the fluid, a power meter to measure the attenuated signal , two fiber optic transmission probes and a data acquisition software used to record the system pressure, temperature, solvent flow rate and the power of the transmitted light. The SDS can be used with different Vinci instruments such Fluid-Eval, Flass, FT700...
