Model 5265 MGSA Mechanical Gel Strength


A Critical Tool for Oil Well Drilling and Cementing
The Model 5265 MGSA 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 5265 MGSA measures the onset of gel strength as well as the continued development of gel strength. This data equips the operator with the knowledge required to optimize slurry designs and meet critical requirements of well placement.

The Model 5265 MGSA utilizes a precision motor and paddle coupled to a reaction force transducer to measure the phase change. The instrument is designed to condition the slurry at 150 RPM and set the measurement of gel strength at 0.2 degrees per minute. As an added function, the motor can be run at an intermittent motor rate. The geometry of the paddle is industry specific or may be adapted to other geometries as needed. The instrument comes complete with the Quizix Precision Pump System for stable and accurate pressure control. Precision pressure control is critical for the accuracy of gel strength measurement and maintaining gel structure.
