AutoLab 1000

AutoLab 1000 is a servo-hydraulic operated system for hydrostatic measurements of compressional and shear wave velocities, permeability, electrical resistivity, pore volume compressibility, acoustic emissions, and linear compressibility on rock specimens up to 50.8 mm (2.0 in) in diameter at in situ overburden pressure, pore pressure and temperature.

The AutoLab 1000 optionally can have a load frame.

The high pressure system consists of a pressure vessel and servo-hydraulic intensifiers for confining and pore pressure. This design is convenient for routine measurements at reservoir pressures up to 103 MPa (15,000 psi) and temperatures up to 120˚C (248˚F). 

Key Features

  • Servo-hydraulic control of confining pressure, pore pressure and flow rate
  • Control of pressures and temperatures at reservoir conditions
  • Pore pressure intensifier compatible with water, brine, oil, and gas (including co2)
  • Autolab software for system data acquisition and reduction
  • Integrated electronics console for servo amplifiers and signal conditioning
  • Optional load frame allows for measurement of elastic constants and fracture properties
