Bulk Volume

Immersed Bulk Volume Meter

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: IBV

The immersed bulk volume meter is a determination system is designed to measure bulk volume of plug sized core samples with excellent accuracy. The principle consists of immersing the core sample under mercury and measuring with a high precision weighing balance the resulting buoyant force. The bulk volume is then determined by using the Archimede principle.



Geometric Bulk Volume Meter

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: GBV

Geometric Bulk Volume Meter is designed to measure bulk volume of plug sized and/or full diameter core samples with excellent accuracy. The principle consists of measuring accurately the length and diameter of the samples at different grades. Minimum of 8 measurements along the diameter and one every 50 mm along the length are necessary to get an accurate bulk volume measurement. The bulk volume is determined by integrating those measurements. This calculation can be done by hand or by optional computer program. In the latest, calipered dimensional data on core samples are automatically logged and the geometric bulk volume, shape factor, effective flow area and caliper bulk factor are automatically calculated by the program.
