Real-Time Analysis of Fluids
in the Process Pipeline

The OLR utilizes a unique implementation of squeeze flow technology providing a quick and rich measurement of the elastic and flow properties of the fluid. The operator can then make informed process decisions about the quality of the material in the pipe and make appropriate changes.

  • Introducing the OLR OnLine Rheometer

    Real-Time Analysis of Fluids in the Process Pipeline. The OLR utilizes a unique implementation of squeeze flow technology providing a quick and rich measurement of the elastic and flow properties of the fluid. The operator can then make informed process decisions about the quality of the material in the pipe and make appropriate changes. The OnLine Rheometer (OLR) is designed to continuously measure, plot, and report the rheological properties of drilling, completion, and fluids within a system. The OLR uses a squeezeflow technique; it measures storage and loss moduli by imposing a small cyclic deformation on a liquid sample at a variety of frequencies, from 1-100 Hz. Quality control parameters and user interface are based on η* (complex viscosity [Pa s]), as measured by the OLR. The response of the liquid is measured and displayed in terms of G’ (storage modulus [Pa]), G” (loss ...

  • New Partnership with Teledyne ISCO

    OFITE is excited to announce a new partnership with Teledyne ISCO to distribute ISCO pumps to the energy industry in North America. Teledyne ISCO manufactures industry-leading syringe and reciprocating pumps for a wide range of applications. These rugged, do-anything pumps solve your toughest fluid delivery problems, from micro-flow to scale-up and pilot plant, pumping corrosive liquids, and safe operation in explosive atmospheres with the HLf Series. ​ Teledyne ISCO D-Series precision syringe pumps give you flow and pressure control throughout a broad operating range. D-Series syringe pumps can be metered with great accuracy and do not exhibit pulsation or flow anomalies typically associated with other pump types. The ReaXus reciprocating pump product line provides many options to meet your application needs. If space is tight, constant pressure is required, continuous flow is a key p ...

  • OFITE and Sequoia Scientific Deliver LISST-Portable|XR’s for Oil & Gas Drilling in the North Sea

    OFITE and Sequoia Scientific, Inc. have completed delivery of two LISST-Portable|XR instruments to Norway for use in the North Sea. The technology is commonly used to accurately monitor size changes to particles found in drilling fluids. The LISST-Portable|XR allows analysis of particle size distribution and concentration data during the active drilling process, completed at the rig and often under rugged environmental conditions. Dependable real-time data is critical and allows operators to see anomalies in the distribution curve which may indicate a failure or alert them to take-action if a threshold is crossed. Using industry proven laser diffraction secured inside an impact resistant enclosure, the LISST-Portable|XR allows operators to obtain lab quality data in the field, learn more here. OFI Testing Equipment with offices in Houston, Texas and Dubai, UAE supports the global drill ...

  • Model 4005 Automated UCA/SGSM

    The Ultrasonic Cement Analyzer (UCA) uses the change in velocity of an acoustic signal to determine the compressive strength of a well cement over time. The Static Gel Strength Measurement Device (SGSM) uses a vaned bob submerged in the slurry to determine the static gel strength over time. Together, these two instruments provide a more complete picture of the physical properties of a well cement as the slurry sets. The Model 4005 Automated Twin Cell UCA with optional SGSM automatically controls the temperature and pressure in each cell independently, bringing a new level of precision and control to your cement lab. With the new touch-screen display, you can now run an entire test in standalone mode, without the need for computer software, although the software is still included with the instrument. The Model 4005 has a maximum pressure of 5,000 psi and a maximum temperature of 400°F. ...

  • Introducing OASys

    OFITE is excited to launch the OFITE Automated System (OASys). OASys is an innovative solution for the real-time measurement and reporting of drilling fluid properties. All three instruments included in OASys sit on the rig where they can sample the drilling fluid directly. The measurements are then sent to the rig data information system where it is used for simple real time calculations for predicting hole cleaning efficiency and ECD at total depth. This data is then available to be viewed through the rig data information system by the Driller and other personnel at the wellsite as well as remotely via the internet or smart phone apps. Recent advances in drilling technology have significantly increased the average rate of penetration of a typical well. In the time a sample is drawn, taken to the lab, and measurements reported, the bit may have drilled hundreds of feet from when the sa ...
