AutoLab 500

AutoLab 500 is a manually operated hydrostatic system for measurements of compressional and shear wave velocities, electrical resistivity, 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 high pressure system consists of a pressure vessel and one pore pressure intensifier. This design is convenient for routine measurements at reservoir pressures up to 69 MPa (10,000 psi) and temperatures up to 120˚C (248˚F).

Key Features

  • 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 signal conditioning
