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.

Permeability Range: 10 nD to 1 mD
Confining Pressure: up to 36 MPa
Standard Core Plug: 5 to 8 cm long
Core diameter: 2.5 to 4.0 cm
Power Requirements: 110VAC 60h Hz or 220-240VAC 50 Hz
High temperature: up to 170°C
