GHA-series Gas hydrates autoclave system


The GHA series is a mercury-free device designed to study gas hydrate formation, dissociation and induction time by monitoring the pressure drop during hydrate formation. The apparatus also incorporates an image capturing system permitting visual investigations of the phenomenon. The system consists of a 250 cc isochoric hydrate cell rated up to 3,000 psi. The cell temperature, monitored by a thermocouple accurate to 0.1°C, is regulated by a thermostatic bath and cell pressure is surveilled by a highly accurate transducer. The two quantities are continuously displayed in the data acquisition system. A magnetically driven, speed-adjustable stirrer ensures a thorough and efficient agitation while an integrated stethoscopic camera captures experimental images.
