Liquid Permeability

Benchtop Liquid Permeameter System

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: BPS-350

The BPS350 permeameter is a manually operated system designed for performing simple liquid permeability tests at pore pressure to 5,000 psi with confining pressures to 5,000 psi. The standard system includes a low pulsation HPLC pump for fluid delivery at flow rates from 0.01 to 10 ml/min. Plug core samples are held in a Hassler core holder mounted horizontally. The core holder can accommodate 1.5” diameter core samples one to three inches in length. The system is equipped with one differential pressure transducer which has a range of 0-500 psid. A manual bypass valve is used to equilibrate pressure on the transducer preventing damage at high differential pressures. A dome loaded backpressure regulator is utilized to maintain downstream elevated test pressures. A manually operated hydraulic pump is used to generate confining pressure up to 5,000 psi. An optional gas injection can be added to flow nitrogen gas through the core sample to measure the end point relative permeability Krg.



Liquid Permeameter (Educational)

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: Liqperm

The Liquid permeameter is dedicated to measure permeability to liquid of plug sized core samples at room conditions. The liquid permeability determination is based on the Darcy's law and assumes that one phase is present in the core and there is no rock fluid interaction. The instrument is provided with an hassler coreholder, a fluid transfer vessel, a console with pressure digital display, 3 interchangeable burettes for various permeability ranges, an electronic timer for flow rate calculation and an Excel spread sheet calculation template. This low cost apparatus is particular interested for educational purposes.
