Assesses phase behavior of reservoir fluids at microscopic level
The Grace Instrument M9720 Micromodel Phase Behavior System is designed to provide fundamental details on the dynamics of flow displacement and phase behavior at reservoir conditions. A high resolution camera provides microscopic view on these details.

The M9720 high pressure viewing cell comprises sapphire glass and porous construction etched on the metal/glass. Light transmits through the sapphire glass and camera captures or records the experiment.

The M9720 evaluates EOR process under different pressure and temperature conditions. Analysis of test results may render variable options for engineers predicting the phase behavior of polymer solutions within oil-field environment, leading to higher oil recovery factor.

The M9720 Micromodel Phase Behavior System can be used for different applications, such as microbial study, miscible displacement, phase behavior study, scaling factor study, etc.
