Facilities

  • Electrochemistry System Brand: MetaRock,
    Model: ECS-100
    Electrochemistry System The Electrochemistry System is designed to measure the streaming potential of a 1.0″ x 3.0″ porous sample under isostatic stress up to 300 psi and injection pressure up to 50.0 psi.
  • Helium Porosimeter Brand: MetaRock,
    Model: PDP-300
    Helium Porosimeter The research grade helium porosimeter at ANPERC is meant for measurement of difficult samples such as shales and tight gas sands where the absolute highest precision is required.
  • One Attension Theta-High Pressure Contact Angle Brand: Bioline Scientific,
    Model: Theta
    One Attension Theta-High Pressure Contact Angle The One Attension Theta-High Pressure is a tensiometer for measuring wettability and interfacial tension at high pressures and high temperatures within enhanced oil recovery research.
  • Profilometer Brand: Nanovea,
    Model: JR25
    Profilometer Nanovea Profilometers are designed to measure a physical wavelength directly related to a specific height without using any complex algorithms.
  • Steady State Permeameter Brand: MetaRock,
    Model: SSK-400
    Steady State Permeameter The steady state permeameter, SSK-400, is designed to overcome the challenges associated with quantifying low permeability measurements and avoiding major pitfalls.
