Custom Isothermal Sorption Machine
Gas sorption measurements require precise pressure and temperature control to replicate the subsurface conditions of the core samples under test. The isotherm systems were developed to provide these conditions, operating from STP to 400 degrees and 10,000 psi.
ARA engineers made improvements to the existing hardware and instrumentation system to provide the ability to run two core samples per system, which doubles sample throughput and improves measurement accuracy.
Accurate laboratory measurement of geological gas sorption properties provides a method of predicting production.
