FLC-series Fluid loss curing cell

API RP 60

Description

The FLC-series fluid loss curing cell is designed to cure resin-coated proppant packs at high temperatures and variable closure stress prior to a uniaxial compressive strength (UCS) test. The cell consists of a floating piston accumulator, which can be N2 charged to generate the closure pressure. The proppant slurry is contained between the piston and the opposite removable cell cap equipped with a leak off port and sand screen. Fracturing fluid can leak off as closure is applied axially. A bank of 3 to 6 cells are commonly run with 1 plug each. The cells are placed in an oven to cure the samples. The plugs are then removed and the compressive strength is measured on a press. The cells come available in a wide range of diameters.
