Highest pressure and temperature rating of any foam rheometer in the world
Today's researchers must come to grips with some of the harshest environments on earth, and the M9200 HPHT Foam Rheometer hardware is intended to address their needs by providing a test environment that is more robust and realistic than any competing instrument available today can provide.

M9200 provides dynamic foam circulation condition instead of static condition, which results in foam separation. This unique feature of M9200 enables foam to be constantly circulated and sheared in the loop for achieving uniform foam properties during testing.

The integrated heat trace maintains a uniform temperature on all sample lines, further ensuring accurate test results.

The Grace Instrument M9200 HPHT Foam Rheometer is designed to simulate foam fracturing and acidizing processes under down hole conditions of temperature and pressure, while providing comprehensive data collection, including power law n' and k' values for future modeling. The M9200 computer-controlled automation package allows precise monitoring and variable flow-rate control.
