For enhanced data collection, OFITE is pleased to introduce its new Pressurized Viscometer. This fully-automated system accurately determines the fluid characteristics of stimulation fluids, completion fluids, drilling fluids, and cement in terms of shear stress, shear rate, time, and temperature at pressure up to 2,500 PSI.
Using the exclusive ORCADA® software, a computer novice can operate the viscometer, and yet the system is versatile enough for advanced research and demanding test parameters. It is suitable for both field and laboratory use. A waterproof, compartmentalized case with wheels makes the unit completely portable.
The new optional *SAFEHEAT® system is a Safe, Accurate, Fast, Environmentally friendly, High Efficiency Air Transfer system. Compared to traditional oil bath heating systems, *SAFEHEAT® provides more precise control over the sample temperature without the risks of hot oil, such as spilling, splashing or flashing. No oil means no hazardous materials, which makes the *SAFEHEAT® system safer, easier and faster to clean.
