    Tired of Grub Screws?

    Any instrument that operates at elevated temperatures and pressures creates a safety concern in the lab.  HTHP filter press cells are no different. The traditional design, with its six locking screws around the cap, has been known to trap pressure and become a safety risk. OFITE has designed a new cell with safety in mind. This modular design is much safer and more convenient. The two-piece cap is threaded, and cannot be opened while the cell is pressurized. And interchangeable caps make it easy to reconfigure the cell for testing with different filter media (filter paper, ceramic disks, or cement screens) with a single cell body. This innovative new cell is available in both 175 mL and 500 mL. Both sizes are compatible with standard HTHP filter press heating jackets, valve stems, and pressure assemblies. They are rated to a maximum pressure of 5000 PSI (34.5 MPa) and 500°F (260°C ...

    Static Gel Strength Measurement

    Primarily intended for use in the oilfield industry, the OFITE Static Gel Strength Measurement Device (SGSM) is designed to measure the gel strength development of cement after pumping operations have ceased. The unique design of the SGSM, combined with the advanced data acquisition software, provides users with a true mechanical static gel strength measurement.   The SGSM is an accessory for the OFITE UCA (Ultrasonic Cement Analyzer). When used together, these two instruments give users a complete picture of the setting characteristics of cement slurries. Having the ability to both condition and analyze cement slurries allows the SGSM to mechanically measure the gel strength development rate of slurries that are subjected to a comprehensive range of downhole conditions; up to a maximum pressure of 20,000 psi and a maximum temperature of 204°C (400°F).   The classic van bob ...
