Relative Permeability

X-Ray Scanner for In-Situ Saturation Monitoring

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: RPS-700XRAY

The automated linear x-ray scanning system is designed to measure liquid and/or gas in situ saturations of a core sample during flow experiments. The core sample is loaded into an x-ray transparent core holder at reservoir conditions of pressure and temperature and can be scanned in either vertical or horizontal orientation. The system consists of a computer controlled X-ray generator configurable at user-defined voltages and currents, a single linear X-ray detector to measure the x-ray beam absorption in the core and a movable slide assembly to position the generator along the core longitudinal axis. The unit can be integrated with existing recirculating flow systems such as the RPS 700.



Steady State & Unsteady State Relative Permeameter

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: RPS-700

The RPS 700 system provides a versatile facility to carry out unsteady state and steady state relative permeability studies for liquid/liquid and liquid/gas at reservoir conditions of temperature and pressure. The liquid phases are injected and recirculated though the sample at different constant flow rates while the gas phase is injected at constant flow rate. An optional Nitrogen gas line permits to inject nitrogen though the sample either at constant pressure or at constant flow rate. The computer controlled system is provided with a unique software that allows for operation both manual and automatic modes where all key components can be controlled including pump, valves, video capturing and data acquisition. A test sequencer also permits to program and run test sequences automatically. The coreholder, air operated valves, produced fluid separator and necessary plumbing are mounted in an airbath that has been designed to provide easy access of all components. The unique high temperature fluid recirculation triple pump system presents an unprecedented solution to generate continuous, pulse free fluid flow rate of one or more fluids through a sample while maintaining a constant pressure at the outlet of the sample. The automatic confining pump generates and maintains automatically a net overburden pressure thus avoiding to control pressure changes during heating and cooling steps. The video separator also provides an extreme accuracy of the volume of brine, oil and gas produced during the flow tests at reservoir conditions.



Unsteady State Relative Permeameter

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: AUTOFLOOD 700

The AUTOFLOOD 700 system provides a versatile facility to carry out unsteady state relative permeability studies for liquid/liquid and liquid/gas at reservoir conditions of temperature and pressure. A nitrogen gas line permits to inject nitrogen gas either at constant pressure or at constant flow rate. The computer controlled system is provided with a unique software that allows for operation both manual and automatic modes where all key components can be controlled including pump, valves, video capturing and data acquisition. A test sequencer also permits to program and run test sequences automatically. The coreholder, air operated valves, produced fluid separator and necessary plumbing are mounted in an airbath that has been designed to provide easy access of all components. The automated back pressure regulator provides a very stable pressure control with fast response to pressure fluctuations and phase transition. It can be used for single and multiphase flow system. The automatic confining pump generates and maintains automatically a net overburden pressure thus avoiding to control pressure changes during heating and cooling steps. The unique video separator provides an extreme accuracy of the volume of brine, oil and gas produced during the flow tests at reservoir conditions.
