The “PIK-KPK” installation for core capillary impregnation in automatic mode (SATURATOR)

The “PIK-KPK” capillary impregnation Saturator is created for core samples automated saturation with liquid (reservoir water or its model, oil, kerosene, etc.) in accordance with GOST 26450.1-85. The presence of liquid level detection system in saturation chambers makes it possible to control the stage duration of samples capillary impregnation, providing high quality saturation of the void space even of low-porous samples.

The installation includes from two to eight saturation chambers, a vacuum pump, a fluid pump and a control system. Saturation chambers allow uploading full-size core fragments of, as well as core samples of different geometries. There are no restrictions on the minimum load.
