Static Gel Strength

The Multiple Analysis Cement System (MACS II®) instrument performs static gel strength tests on cement slurry samples.

The MACS II instrument conducts these tests under simulated down-hole pressure and temperature conditions to determine the Zero Gel Time/Transition Time (SGS/Time) of oil well cement.

The MACS II instrument accepts a sample of cement slurry and applies a controlled set of temperature, agitation, and pressure parameters that simulate the down-hole conditions of a well. During testing, it monitors, controls, and records these parameters to form a data set. This data can then be analyzed to assist in predicting the performance of cement slurry in a well.

If a situation exists that a well presents particular problems or special conditions of temperature and/or pressure, the MACS II instrument can assist to minimize possible problems by providing a safe and controlled environment in which to test different cement slurries for the drilling process.

Maximum Temperature for the MACS II analyzer is 600˚F.

Maximum Pressure for the MACS II analyzer is 30,000 psig
