Model 3000 PVT Phase Behaviour System
The Chandler Engineering 3000 PVT system is designed as a precision, multi-tasking instrument for understanding the behaviour of complex mixtures.
The study of thermo-physical properties of fluids such as phase behaviour, density, viscosity, etc. under varying conditions of pressure, temperature and volume is commonly known as PVT studies. The 3000 PVT System is a precision instrument used to perform PVT studies on a variety of fluids with an emphasis on those fluids typically encountered in petroleum reservoirs.
3000 PVT System studies include:
- Oil Analysis / Recombined Fluid
- Oil Analysis / Capillary Viscosity
- Oil Analysis / Capillary Viscosity / Density
- Oil Analysis / Solids Detection
- Oil Analysis / Gas-Condensate Analysis
- Gas-Condensate / Low GOR
- Gas-Condensate / High GOR
- Chemical and Solvent Evaluation
The 3000 PVT system is mercury-free, more capable and easier to use. Computer-based data acquisition and control software makes are easy to set-up and perform PVT tests while electronically logging key test data. Since 1945 Chandler Engineering’s PVT products have been the world. This particular model, The 3000 PVT Phase Behaviour System, is the most widely accepted analytical (PVT) system in both domestic and international scientific laboratories.
