  • Automated Shear History Simulator Simplifies Fracturing Fluid Analysis

    Tuesday, August 9, 2016 438 days ago

    The Chandler Engineering Model 5600-AUTO Shear History Simulator greatly simplifies the process of preparing and loading water-based fracturing fluids into rotational viscometers. The rheology of fracturing fluids used by the oil and gas industry is affected by a range of factors and conditions, and shear history simulators have proven especially useful for determining how well these fluids perform in transporting proppants. The process begins with a gel-based fluid that is placed into a pressurized supply reservoir that delivers the fluid to an injection pump. The fluid is pumped through a combination of tubes at various rates and durations to simulate pumping conditions experienced during fracture treatments. Pressure is applied to the reservoir via an air regulator mounted onto the face panel.

  • Model 4300 Fluid Loss Cell Offers Improved Capabilities and Safety Features

    Friday, April 8, 2016 561 days ago

    Fluid loss from muds and cement slurries to a permeable formation can significantly impact performance or damage the formation. If the cement slurry loses too much fluid, its strength can be compromised and require costly remedial intervention. The Model 4300 Fluid Loss Cell from Chandler Engineering, a leader in drilling and completion instrumentation, measures the fluid loss properties of muds and cement slurries in accordance with API procedures.
