Fracture Conductivity Evaluation System (FCS)

Product Description



    Designed, through the cooperation of various Divisions of Core Laboratories, to produce data, which allows the engineer to evaluate and model the performance of proppants used in fracture enhancement projects. Using the system; proppants can be evaluated at various closure pressures and temperatures and the resultant conductivity determined at various flow rates and pressure differentials.
    The standard system uses a 100 short ton press to apply up to 20,000-psi closure pressure on one custom
    designed cell that can be heated up to 350° F (177° C).
    All of the wetted parts are constructed in 316 stainless steel, with optional materials available on request.
