The system is configured for two phase liquid displacements under unsteady state
or steady-state conditions and single phase gas steady-state experiments. It is
rated to 5,000 psig confining pressure, 3,500 psig pore pressure at room temperature.
The system features automated data acquisition, manual and semi-automated operation
via a Windows based graphical interface. On-screen graphics allow the operation
of PC controlled valves which control and direct the flowing fluid, operate the
pump delivery system for the start/stop of fluid flow and control of the flow rate.
Multiple systems can be networked to a master control PC allowing supervisory staff
to set safety and operating criteria whilst students maintain control of actual
