Core Saturators

Manual Saturator

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: MS

The manual saturator permits to perform a sequence of vacuum and saturation cycles on plug size samples. The standard apparatus includes a plug sized core cell, a vacuum pump, an hand operated pressure pump (2,000 psi output), a saturant vacuum tank and necessary hand operated valves and plumbing. A larger capacity cell to accommodate full size core samples is also available.



Overburden Core Saturator

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: OCS-350

The overburden core saturator enables the end user to obtain remarkable saturation of cleaned and dry core samples under overburden pressure. The core sample is placed in a hydrostatic core holder under overburden pressure and evacuated by applying high vacuum for few hours. The liquid phase is then injected in the core sample using a HPLC pump up to 5,000 psi to assure complete saturation of the core. The same system can be configured with additional core holders if necessary.



Automated Saturator

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: AS

The automated saturator permits to perform a sequence of vacuum, filling and saturation cycles on plug size samples in an automated mode to free the operator for other tasks. The bench top apparatus comes with a plug sized core cell, a vacuum pump, a high pressure liquid pump (2,000 psi output), a saturant vacuum tank and necessary automated valves and plumbing. A larger capacity cell to accommodate full size core samples is also available. The apparatus is controlled by a computer which allows the operator to open or close the valves, start and stop the high pressure pump, the vacuum pump and to run automatic saturation cycles.
