Model 3000 PVT Phase Behavior System

Model 3000 PVT Phase Behavior System
A Precision, Multi-Tasking Instrument For Understanding The Behavior Of Complex Mixtures
The study of thermo-physical properties of fluids such as phase behavior, density, viscosity, etc. under varying conditions of pressure, temperature and volume is commonly known as PVT studies. The Model 3000 PVT System is a precision instrument used to perform PVT studies on a variety of fluids with a special emphasis on those fluids typically encountered in petroleum reservoirs. Types of studies commonly conducted with a Model 3000 PVT System include: 
  • Oil Analysis / Recombined Fluid
  • Oil Analysis / Capillary Viscosity
  • Oil Analysis / Capillary Viscosity / Density
  • Oil Analysis / Solids Detection
  • Oil Analysis / Gas-Condensate Analysis
  • Gas-Condensate / Low GOR
  • Gas-Condensate / High GOR
  • Chemical and Solvent Evaluation

Our PVT systems are mercury-free, more capable and easier to use. Computer-based data acquisition and control software makes is easy to set-up and perform PVT tests while electronically logging key test

Chandler Engineering’s PVT products have been the world’s leading line of PVT equipment since 1945. The Model 3000 PVT Phase Behavior System is the most widely accepted analytical (PVT) system in both domestic and international scientific laboratories.
