• Equipment Leasing

    Budgets in the oilfield industry are tight right now. It is harder than ever to keep your lab equipped with the latest technology. But need to new technology is greater than ever. Innovation is more important now than ever. So what is the solution? We are now offering a new equipment lease program. We want to offer you a selection of instruments at monthly rates that don't exceed your capital expenditure limit. Leases will carry a three year term. At the end of the first and second year you have the option to buy, continue leasing, or return the equipment. At the end of the third year, the equipment is yours with no additional payment. Equipment downtime is costly and inconvenient. So as part of each lease, we include regularly scheduled, on-site service trips. Every six months, an OFITE technician will visit your lab and perform a routine inspection, maintenance, and calibration on t ...

  • What Makes the Model 800 Viscometer Unique?

    The Model 800 Viscometer has been around for years. It’s the workhorse of laboratory and field rheological testing. But why is it so popular? Why do so many people prefer it to the competition? A lighted dial. It may not seem like much, but the tiny light inside the case illuminates the dial and makes it much easier to read. It is especially helpful in situations where ambient lighting is less than optimal. Whether it’s the glare from the sun or the gloom of a dark lab, the dial is always easy to read. Universal voltage. All of the electrical components of the Model 800 operate exclusively on DC power. What does that mean to you? It means you can plug it in almost anywhere. The included power supply accepts between 100 and 240 volts of AC power. But the best part is the frequency. Whether you are operating on 50 Hz or 60 Hz, the power supply converts it to DC. We even offer a special ...

  • New Product Addresses the Challenges of Testing Foam Cement in the Lab

    Foam cement is a versatile, low-density cementing system used in many oil-well applications. It is commonly used for low fracture gradient or lost circulation problem wells. The formulation is unique compared to other oil-well fluids because it uses three phases of matter. The solid phase consists of cement and other dry additives. The liquid phase is mix water and any liquid additives. And the gaseous phase is, in most cases, nitrogen (N2) gas. Adding nitrogen gas to a cement slurry dramatically reduces the density while using the same amount of mix water. Because no extra water is used, foam cement develops sufficient mechanical strength for well-bore application while improving the bonding characteristics. As the temperature increases down hole, the nitrogen gas expands, pushing the foam cement against the formation and casing and creating a stronger bond. Despite the added benefits, ...

  • Cement Settling

    Settling during a well cement operation can lead to the development of free water or free fluid. Free water and fluid do not set like cement, which can compromise well integrity and zonal isolation. The BP Cement Settling Tube is designed to test the settling characteristics of well cement under elevated temperature and pressure. The cement slurry is poured into the brass tube and cured in a Consistometer, Curing Chamber, or water bath. After the cement has cured, the column is cut into pieces and the density of each piece is measured using Archimedes Principle. Visit the product page for more information. ...
