• Advanced Corrosion Testing

    Corrosion costs the drilling industry billions of dollars every year. Drill pipe, casing, and downhole tools are particularly vulnerable. To measure the corrosive properties of drilling and completion fluids, the industry uses corrosion rings and coupons. These are typically placed in the drill string and exposed to fluids during drilling operations. But sometimes more advanced testing is necessary. The OFITE HTHP Corrosion Tester is designed to test the corrosive properties of fluids under elevated temperature and pressure in a laboratory setting. It can test four samples at a time at up to 400°F and 5,000 psi. The controlled environment of the lab makes it easier to control variables and get more repeatable results. The test starts with four corrosion coupons. Each is thoroughly cleaned and weighed and then submerged in a glass jar of corrosive test fluid. The four jars fit into a ca ...

  • Measuring Mechanical Properties Made Easy

    Advanced oil well cement testing goes beyond compressive strength. The elastic properties (Young’s Modulus, Poisson’s Ratio, and Tensile Strength) also play a major role in well integrity. But measuring these properties has always been a challenge. The equipment is often large, complex, and expensive. What is the solution? The OFITE TLF-112 Triaxial Mechanical Properties Testing System is the first instrument specifically designed to physically measure the four major mechanical properties of oil well cement: Compressive Strength (API Specification 10A and Recommended Practice 10B-2) Young’s Modulus Poisson’s Ratio Brazilian Indirect Tensile Strength (ASTM C496/C496M -04)  The innovative design integrates a 500 kN load frame, 10,000 psi confining pressure system, and 400°F heating system into a single enclosure. The small footprint saves valuable floor space and allows fo ...

  • 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 ...
