Accoustic Velocity Core Holder

Accoustic Velocity Core Holder

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: AVC

The AVC Series core holders are standard triaxial type core holders in which radial and axial loading are independent. These core holders are routinely used for acoustic velocity measurement at reservoir conditions. The coreholder features a pair of acoustic transducers that propagate compressional and two plane-polarized shear waves through the core sample. The triaxial loading insures a proper surface contact between the transducer and the core. An inlet and outlet distribution plug allows fluids to be injected through the core sample. The coreholder does not need to be completely disassembled to remove the core sample. A tool permits to orientate easily the P&S1,S2 transducer before the acoustic velocity measurement takes place.
