FTC-series Flow through curing cell

Description

The FTC-series flow through curing cell is designed to cure resin-coated proppant packs with fracturing fluid at high temperatures and variable closure stress prior to a uniaxial compressive strength (UCS) test. The device consists of a chamber equipped with two upper and lower hardened steel platens. The proppant pack is subjected to axial compression loading to simulate the closure pressure. Pore fluid ports located in both platens allow pore pressure tests to be conducted. Fracturing fluid leak off can also be monitored as closure is applied. Fluids can also be flowed through the specimen at temperature when equipped with a back pressure regulator. A heating mantle is provided around the cell to heat and maintain a constant, homogeneous temperature in the proppant pack from ambient to 177°C. The cells come available in a wide range of diameters. A dedicated laboratory press is required to generate the axial load to the specimen.
