Submersible core holders

Submersible core holders are used in installations for studying core samples reservoir properties at reservoir conditions.
The core holder is a cylindrical shape vessel with end caps (nuts). Plungers, flanges and rubber cuff for core placement are located inside the core holder body. Plungers and flanges have inlet and outlet ports for supplying pore fluids, ports for creating crimp pressure, as well as ports for temperature control sensors and reserve ports for filling and draining crimp volume. Delivery set can include a special tripod to work with a core holder.
Sample change in the core holder occurs with a partial discharge of hydraulic crimping fluid.
Core holders can be equipped with separate heating system including clamp heaters, temperature sensors, temperature measurement and control system with a PC connection.
