Automated Nuclear Resonance

The PMI Automated Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) system is designed to yield a non-invasive technique for the study of rock core plugs either at a fresh state or saturated with different loadings of crude oil and/or brine.

Automated Single Sample Pulse Decay Permeameter/Porosimeter

The rock core sample is loaded in a holder and confining pressure is applied. The system is then charged with test gas to the desired pore pressure. Adequate time is given to allow this pressure to fully saturate the sample.

Advanced Pulse Decay Permeameters

A rock sample is held in the sample chamber and compressive stress is applied. While the sample is under compressive stress, the desired properties are measured. The Pressure Decay Permeameter is used to determine the properties of cut samples at certain confining pressure.

Automated Steady State Core Liquid Permeameter

A rock sample is held in the sample chamber and compressive stress is applied. While the sample is under compressive stress, the desired properties are measured. The PMI Steady State Core Liquid Permeameter is used to determine the properties of cut samples at certain confining pressure.

Core Flooding Permeameter

The CFS machine is useful for the oil and mining industry. Rock core samples are able to be placed under pressure and temperature conditions, akin to those found deep underground, during the mining process, and is suitable for testing USS water and gas floods.

Multi-Core Porosimeter Resistance (Rock Core Tester)

The PMI Automated Mercury Intrusion Concrete Porosimeter is a versatile and accurate instrument used to determine properties such as porosity, pore size distribution, average pore size and total pore volume of concrete, rock chips, grains or solid cylindrical samples. With unlimited user-defined data-points, automated data collection and reduction, and the least mercury exposure of any porosimeter on the market, PMI's is a versatile and accurate instrument used to date is safe, reliable, and precise.

Cylindrical Core Cutting Machine

The PMI Cylindrical Core Cutting Machine is custom designed for vibration-free cutting of unconsolidated core (frozen or stabilized at ambient temperature). The saw/blade configuration is designed to cut a variety of inner barrel or liner types including PVC, ABS, aluminum, fiberglass and cardboard. The saw features 24" diameter wheels for reduced blade stress, a 24" throat for cutting materials up to 12" thick, an onboard welder for immediate and cost effective blade repair, and a table frame for stability.

Core Saturators

The PMI Automated Core Saturator is a completely automated system that can use various algorithms for proper saturation of multiple core samples using a vacuum to remove trapped air, and pressurizing pumps to make sure the cores are completely saturated, pressure pump can control pressurizing rates precisely and maintain pressures to within a 0.2% tolerance. The Windows based program provides totally automated execution of the test, data aquisition, data storage, and data management are all performed by the user-friendly software. Operator involvement is minimal and the robust machine requires a minimal amount of care.

Automated Liquid Permeability System

A rock sample is held in the sample chamber and compressive stress is applied. While the sample is under compressive stress, the desired properties are measured. The PMI Steady State Core Liquid Permeameter is used to determine the properties of cut samples at certain confining pressure. The PMI Automated Liquid Permeability System has been specially designed for testing core samples. Core samples are held in a Hassler type core holder which compresses the sample to the desired pressure. The test is run at ambient temperature. Non aqueous fluid such as oil, kerosene and aqueous fluid such as brine or equivalent can be used. The instrument measures the rate of a known amount of liquid to compute permeability. The equipment is fully automated. Execution of the test, data acquisition, data storage, & data management are all carried out by PMI Software. Operator involvement is minimal, and the instrument is robust and requires a minimal amount of care.

Automatic Pulse Decay Porosimeter/Permeameter

The rock core sample is loaded in a holder and confining pressure is applied. The system is then charged with test gas to the desired pore pressure. Adequate time is given to allow this pressure to fully saturate the sample. After reaching equilibrium the upstream and downstream portions of the system are isolated from each other. A pulse is then created by raising the upstream pressure (or lowering the downstream pressure). Data is recorded throughout this process and is used in conjunction with known system volumes to calculate gas flow rates and permeability. The equipment is fully automated. Execution of the test, data acquisition, data storage and data management are all carried out by PMI Software. Operator involvement is minimal, and the instrument is robust and requires a minimal amount of care.
