GeoSpec Rock Core Analysers are now able to perform NMR core measurements at as close to reservoir conditions as possible
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) is a valuable tool for both routine core analysis and SCAL. Most measurements are made at ambient temperature and pressure, but it is becoming increasingly important to carry out measurements at as close to reservoir conditions as possible. To do this, an NMR-compatible core holder is needed, but existing designs have severe limitations on either sample handling or NMR performance.
The P5 Cells make overburden studies routine by removing these limitations and allowing users to carry out NMR measurements at reservoir conditions. Designed and built with a focus on usability and performance, the cells allow users to pressurise samples with up to 5,000 psi of confining pressure. The P5 Cells, unique to the GeoSpec range of NMR rock core analysers, use state-of-the-art materials to allow the NMR coil to be closer to the sample while maintaining the performance of the GeoSpec.
Unique features of the P5 Pressure Cells:
Measurements at up to 5000psi and 100°C
Unique ceramic pressure vessel results in minimal background noise and high signal/noise ratio
Easily installed in the instrument
Can be maintained at pressure outside the instrument, so not preventing use of the instrument during equilibration
CE certified; Safety tested to 15000psi, with secondary containment and burst disk
The P5 Cells allow the sample to be pressurised both inside and outside the instrument. Pressurised samples can be inserted and removed from the instrument without depressurising, eliminating pressure cycling issues.
