Automated saturation of core samples
Grace Instrument's M9106 Automated Saturator is a computer controlled saturator used for performing a sequence of vacuum and saturation cycles on both plug and full diameter core samples (option) in an automated mode.

This apparatus uses a vacuum to remove trapped air and a high pressure liquid pump to make sure the core samples are completely saturated. Dual thermocouples monitor the bath temperature to provide extra protection and prevent from hazardous situation. Pre-installed copper cooling coil cools down the temperature of bath quickly at the end of the test so that time between tests reduces significantly.

Designed for Simple Operation and Minimal Maintenance
The Windows®-based program permits the operator to open or close the valves, start and stop the high pressure pump, the vacuum pump, and run automatic saturation cycles. Operator involvement is minimal and the robust machine requires a minimal amount of maintenance.
