Gel Strength/Gas Migration

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 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.

    The Chandler Engineering Model 5265MG Gel Strength Analyzer is an addition to Chandler Engineering’s world leading line of cement testing equipment. The need to measure gel development, gel duration and gel strength are critical in the design of cement slurries. The Model 5265MG allows an operator to study the development and resulting gel strength throughout the gel phase of cement slurries. This tool equips the operator with the knowledge required to improve slurry designs and to meet the critical requirements of well placement.
