RCA 1000-Recombination cell apparatus


This RCA 1000 recombines at reservoir-representative conditions, the right proportions of gaseous and liquid hydrocarbons sampled from separators to yield a hydrocarbon mixture closely resembling that of the reservoir. The apparatus comes with a recombination cell jacketed in an insulated heating jacket for temperature control, a rocking system, a mixing ring inside the cell, a magnetically-driven stirrer for proper agitation, a bull’s eye window to observe the process, a temperature & pressure display panel and a moveable chassis.

*Very fast recombination operation due to the magnetic driven stirrer
* The motorized rocking system with the mixing ring in the sample chamber provides an efficient agitation for the heay oil samples
* Bull's eye window for dew point and bubble point detection
* Versatile as it can be used for oil and gas condensates thanks to its rocking system
