M9130 Slim Tube System
Grace Instrument's M9130 Slim Tube System is used to test dynamic miscibile (or homeogeneous) solutions at reservoir conditions.

Before testing gas is injected at usercontrolled pressure through a slim tube which has been saturated in oil through a high pressure pump. A back pressure regulator achieves a constant pressure inside the system while the liquid waste, (or effluent) discharged from the slim tube can be observed through a capillary sight glass tube.

They are then expanded to atmospheric pressure and temperature through a back pressure regulator. An ultrasonic multiphase separator for liquid measurement as the produced gas is measured by a wet gas meter.

A recovery curve is plotted using the raw data obtained during the testing of different miscible displacement experiments. Additional components such as density meter and gas chromatograph may be added to extend the capabilities of the instrument.
