Permeability Plugging Apparatus (PPA)

Shale Tech Solutions SRL distribuidor exclusivo de FANN para la Argentina

5,000 psig Working Pressure

The Permeability Plugging Apparatus (PPA) is designed to provide accurate simulation and measurement of down-hole static filtration. This 5,000 psig rated PPA is ideal for predicting how a drilling fluid can form a permeable filter cake to seal off depleted/under pressure intervals. The PPA utilizes a conventional HTHP Heating Jacket to simulate reservoir temperature. The fluid cell is inverted, with pressure applied from the bottom of the cell and filtrate collected out the top. Pressure is transferred to the mud by a small hydraulic hand pump through a small floating piston within the cell. The PPA employs a ceramic filter disc, which is available in varying porosities. The disc offers a more authentic representation of the formation.

  • Pressure rating: 5,000 psig (34,473 kPa)
  • Temperature rating: 500°F (260°C)
