Formation Damage Studies Lab

The Formation Damage Studies Lab studies the rheology properties of drilling fluids, the formation damage caused by drilling fluids, and the observations of fluid samples under heat and pressure.

OFITE HP/HT Filter Press (shown below) - It is designed for testing drilling fluids and cement under elevated temperatures and pressures. The unit simulates various downhole conditions and provides a reliable method for determining the effectiveness of the material being tested.


HP/HT Visual Reactor (shown below) - It is used for visual observations of reactions and other purposes.


Grace Instrument M3600 Viscometer (shown below) - It is engineered to do laboratory researches for advanced rheology testing. It is need to be used with a Microsoft Windows PC and the included M3600DAQ™ and M3600Frac™ software.


OFITE Five-Spindle, Single-Speed Multi-Mixer (shown below) - It is used in general purpose mixing of drilling fluids in preparation for laboratory tests of mud materials.
