SR-series Static reactor for rock-fluid interactions


The aim is to study geochemical reactions when CO2 is stored in geological reservoirs and their effect on rock properties. This evaluation is key to understanding the CO2 injection impact on storage structures and ensuring long-term safety. Rock samples are placed in the SR-series reactor, immersed in CO2-saturated brine, and set under conditions simulating underground storage for a specified duration. The reactor's conditioning phase prepares the rock samples for subsequent advanced analytical techniques, like X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, and energy dispersive spectrum, enabling precise identification of mineralogical changes and the impact of CO2 on rock petrophysical and mechanical properties. The reactor includes manual valves for CO2 and brine control, a pressure manometer, and a burst disc for safety. The reactors can be heated using either an air bath or an electric heating mantle. Multiple sizes are available.
