This system is designed to evaluate the friction and the friction reduction properties
of completion and fracturing fluids. This is carried out by mixing the completion
fluid or fracture gel in the paddle stirrer tanks and equipped with a turn over
pump. In addition this pump is used to feed the fluid to the main pressure pump
for circulation into the Friction Loop. Fluid exiting the Friction Loop is returned
to the Mixing Tanks.
Mixing System – comprising 50 gallon lidded plastic tank complete
with centrifugal turn over pump, paddle stirrer and associated tubing, valves and
Pumping System – comprising a primary pressure variable speed control,
digital pressure transducer and associated tubing, flanges and fittings. Delivery
system utilizing 1/2 inch outer diameter, 0.43 inch inner diameter stainless steel
tubing with a maximum flow capacity of 22 gallons per minute
Friction Loop comprising two differential pressure transducers
mounted across the loop which is contained in a heated bath for temperature maintenance
Data Acquisition System – PC based system with USB 2.0 data acquisition
and minimum workstation with PC, Dual 21 inch LCD Monitors, 1GB RAM, 520GB Hard
Drive, CD/DVD RW with Microsoft Windows Professional Operating System. A custom
inter-active graphics based control software allows for the control and operation
of the system whilst monitoring and recording all pressure, temperature, flow rate.
On screen custom graphing of data is accomplished through the inter-active program
