Model 5265 MGSA mechanical gel strength analyzer

Don Horne   

Chandler Engineering, a leader in drilling and completion instrumentation, introduces the Model 5265 MGSA Mechanical Gel Strength Analyzer that directly measures the gel strength development of Oil Well Cement slurries under downhole conditions.

The Model 5265 MGSA allows oil service companies and operators around the world to optimize cement slurries and accurately determine the potential for gas and fluid migration between the casing and formation.

The Model 5265 MGSA simulates dynamic slurry conditioning during the placement and   transition phase of the cement slurry. The unique analyzer design includes a precision motor coupled with a reaction force transducer that allows the instrument to precisely measure phase changes.

The system includes a single cylinder Quizix Q5120 pump to allow for pulse free pressure operation. Pulse-free pressure prevents test anomalies induced by pump strokes and quick pressure spikes.
