Traditional filtration testing has always been limited by testing static conditions. Yet most of the time, drilling fluid is circulating through the wellbore. The movement of the fluid can have significant effects on the filter cake that are not measured by static filtration tests.
The OFITE Dynamic HTHP Filter Press (#170-95) is designed to correct this oversight. A shaft and paddle extend down into the test cell and circulate the fluid during a test. The speed is adjustable, and the motor can be started and stopped periodically to better simulate drilling conditions.
This instrument also includes an integrated cooling system. When the test is complete, water or coolant can be circulated around the cell body, quickly cooling the cell to safe temperatures inside the heating jacket. Once the cell is cool, you can then safely release pressure and remove the cell without risking injury or damage.
