Single sample capillary pressure cell


The single sample desaturation cell desaturates a core sample by virtue of the porous plate method. The sample desaturation cell is manufactured from stainless steel and resting on its base is a semi-permeable ceramic plate. It consists of a pressure vessel with an easy opening lid, clamping bolts, O-rings, seals, tubing and a pressure control panel. Three different operating pressure ceramic plates are provided with the system; namely, 1 bar, 5 bar and 15 bar. The control panel includes a digital pressure display, two low and high range pressure regulators and a set of control valves. Moreover, an in-line gas humidifier is integrated into the circuit to prevent in-situ evaporation during the desaturation process.
