Capillary Pressure

Capillary Pressure Cell (Educational)

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: CPC

The educational capillary pressure cell enables to desaturate one core sample by the porous plate method. Data obtained can be used to calculate capillary pressure versus saturation curves. A high precision weighing balance can be used for core saturation measurement. The desaturation cell is manufactured from stainless steel and at its base is equipped with a ceramic plate used as a semi permeable porous plate. The set up consists of a capillary pressure cell, with an easy opening lid, o'rings seals, outflow tube assemblies and pressure control panel. One ceramic plate is provided with the system withstanding 10 bar pressure. The control panel includes a digital pressure display , two low and high range pressure regulators and a set of control valves.



Mercury Capillary Pressure System

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: CPM-140

Manual operated system for the measurement of capillary pressure and pore morphology. Based on Purcell method, mercury is injected into plug sized samples at know volume from vacuum to 2,000 psi (140 bar). The instrument uses a hand operated pump for mercury injection and a coreholder equipped with an opening windowed chamber cap for easy loading / unloading operations and mercury level visualization. The control panel includes the pore pressure regulator, the pore pressure transducer with the digital display and a vacuum manometer.



Multi-Sample Capillary Pressure Cell

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: CPDC

The multiple sample desaturation cell enables to desaturate a set of consolidated core samples by the porous plate method. Data obtained can be used to calculate capillary pressure versus saturation curves. A high precision weighing balance can be used for core saturation measurement. The multiple sample desaturation cell is manufactured from stainless steel and is equipped at its base with a large ceramic plate used as a semi permeable porous plate. The set up consists of a capillary pressure cell, with an easy opening lid, clamping bolts, o'rings seals, outflow tube assemblies and pressure control panel. Three ceramic plates are provided with the systems withstanding each 3 bar, 5 bar and 15 bar pressure. The control panel includes a digital pressure display , two low and high range pressure regulators and a set of control valves. A gas humidifier is also provided to insure minimum evaporation during the desaturation process.
