Oil Well Cementing

Chandler Engineering has produced the highest quality Oil Well Cementing instruments for the Upstream Oil & Gas Industry. Today, Chandler Engineering, the industry's largest instrument supplier continues its effort to help customers improve the efficiency and productivity of their drilling and production operations. Below is a portfolio of API and ISO specified instruments for testing key performance properties of oil well cements.
  • Consistometers

    Consistometers are designed to test a cement's thickening time under a variety of downhole conditions in compliance with API standards. Single and dual-cell models are available.

  • Compressive Strength

    Compressive Strength testers are used to determine the compressive strength development, gel strength development and elastic moduli of oil well cement under simulated downhole conditions.

  • Gel Strength

    Static Gel Strength Analyzers (SGSA) offer simultaneous measurement of a cement slurry's static gel strength development and its compressive strength development while it is curing under downhole temperature and pressure conditions.

  • Gas Migration

    Gas Migration Analyzers are used to evaluate a cement slurry's susceptibility to invasive gas or liquid flow by realistically simulating the well parameters including temperature, hydrostatic head pressure, fluid formation pressure and the pressure gradients that drive these invasive flows.

  • Mechanical Properties

    Mechanical Properties Analyzers (MPRO) continuously measures the elastic mechanical properties (Poisson's Ratio, Young's modulus, Bulk Modulus) and the compressive strength of API cement as it cures under high-temperature and high-pressure conditions.

  • Fluid Loss

    Fluid Loss testers were designed to be as easy to use as possible, with clear and intuitive controls. Once the cement slurry or mud is placed into the test cell, a programmable temperature controller increases the temperature at the desired rate. The slurry is conditioned by stirring at 150 rpm similar to a consistometer.

  • Cement Viscosity

    Cement Viscosity units are used to determine the flow tendencies of completion, drilling and production. Choose from Direct Indicating Viscometers, Computer Controlled Viscometers or Direct Indicating Field Viscometers.

  • Slurry Preparation

    Slurry Preparation Constant Speed Mixers blend cement slurry at an automatic maintained, constant shear rate in accordance with API standards. Atmospheric Consistometers are a simple and accurate means to prepare cement slurries for the testing of rheological properties, fluid loss and various other properties in strict compliance with API standards. Wettability Testers are two instruments in one; a constant speed mixer and an instrument for the evaluation of oil/water phase transition of oil-based drilling fluids as they interact with spacer and/or pre-flush systems.

  • Data Acquisition

    Data Acquisition And Control Software offers complete control over the temperature and pressure schedules of oilfield laboratory instruments from a personal computer. Digital Chart Recorders provide secure data storage and digital backup of critical test data. Previously sold as ancillary equipment on all Chandler Engineering HPHT cement consistometers, pen and paper chart recorder technology is rapidly becoming obsolete as industry demands change.
