Multi-Property Analyzers (NER Autolab & Autoscan)

NER Autoscan System

Manufacturer: New England Research
Model Number: Autoscan

The AutoScan scanner is a unique measurement platform developed by NER for the detailed quantitative and efficient description of core properties. NER developed this non-destructive measurement system specifically for rock typing, plug selection, and well-log data calibration in order to optimize the use of core for reservoir characterization. A detailed description of core properties and their correlations is made possible via the use of interchangeable probes for ultrasonic velocity (compressional and shear), complex electrical impedance, hardness testing, gas permeability, composition (FTIR), and digital photography. Formation heterogeneity for each of these properties can be measured in a single setup on up to 4 meters (12 feet) of core using point measurements and surface scans. A high-precision computer-controlled XY gantry guided by a laser ranging device positions each probe at programmed locations and sample measurement intervals as small as 0.5 millimeter (.02 inches).



NER Autolab 500

Manufacturer: New England Research
Model Number: Autolab 500

AutoLab 500 is a manually operated hydrostatic system for measurements of compressional and shear wave velocities, electrical resistivity, acoustic emissions, and linear compressibility on rock specimens up to 50.8 mm (2.0 in) in diameter at in situ overburden pressure, pore pressure, and temperature.

The high pressure system consists of a pressure vessel and one pore pressure intensifier. This design is convenient for routine measurements at reservoir pressures up to 69 MPa (10,000 psi) and temperatures up to 120˚C (248˚F).



NER Autolab System 3000

Manufacturer: New England Research
Model Number: Autolab 3000

AutoLab 3000 is a customizable servo-hydraulic operated system for triaxial measurements with software-controlled arbitrary stress paths on rock specimens up to 101.6 mm (4.0 in) in diameter at in situ stress conditions, pore pressure, and temperature. The pressure vessel and pore pressure systems are housed in an external furnace to maintain a uniform temperature in the vessel and pore fluids throughout the experiment.

The high pressure triaxial system consists of a pressure vessel with an internal piston for differential stress and servo-hydraulic intensifiers for differential stress, confining and pore pressure. This design is convenient for routine measurements at reservoir pressures up to 138 MPa (20,000 psi) and temperatures up to 150˚C (302˚F).

NER Autolab System 1500

Manufacturer: New England Research
Model Number: Autolab 1500

AutoLab 1500 is a servo-hydraulic operated system for triaxial measurements with software-controlled arbitrary stress paths on rock specimens up to 50.8 mm (2.0 in) in diameter at in situ stress conditions, pore pressure, and temperature.

The high pressure triaxial system consists of a pressure vessel with an internal piston for differential stress and servo-hydraulic intensifiers for differential stress, confining and pore pressure. This design comes in two standard configurations, making it convenient for routine measurements at reservoir pressures up to 69 MPa (10,000 psi) or 138 MPa (20,000 psi) and temperatures up to 120˚C (248˚F).



NER Autolab System 1000

Manufacturer: New England Research
Model Number: Autolab 1000

AutoLab 1000 is a servo-hydraulic operated system for hydrostatic measurements of compressional and shear wave velocities, permeability, electrical resistivity, pore volume compressibility, acoustic emissions, and linear compressibility on rock specimens up to 50.8 mm (2.0 in) in diameter at in situ overburden pressure, pore pressure and temperature.

The AutoLab 1000 optionally can have a load frame.

The high pressure system consists of a pressure vessel and servo-hydraulic intensifiers for confining and pore pressure. This design is convenient for routine measurements at reservoir pressures up to 103 MPa (15,000 psi) and temperatures up to 120˚C (248˚F).
