    Equipments Details


    The Flow Assurance System is used for the reservoir black fluid PVT studies and asphaltene deposition experiments including Constant mass expansion, isothermal depressurisation experiments, isobaric temperature decrease experiments, titration experiments, bulk filtration tests, particle size distribution and solid onset determination. The FLASS system enables the identification of solid particles and size & morphology monitoring of asphaltene solids as a function of temperature, pressure, time and various chemical treatments. Solid detection is achieved by virtue of a solid detection system with a laser source. An organic solid filtration system is used to determine the amount of solid deposits as a function of pressure, temperature or fluid composition and a High-Pressure microscope permits a visual observation of solid precipitation and displacement. Features: Pressure range up: to 10,000 psi Temperature range: ambient to 150°C Volume: up to 200 cc Wetted material: Stainless steel, Sapphire
