Identify and quantify thin, highly permeable beds, permeability barriers, and depositional/diagenetic features by measuring the permeability automatically in both Y and X-axis on up to 3 meters of core at one time. A built in Laser identifies the exact location of the measurement and aids in the selection of areas not to be measured.

The measurement locations can be adjusted to coincide with your specified sampling intervals (e.g. per centimeter, per bed) by changing the grid pattern. This feature has been automated so that from the software, a predefined series of sample sites may be selected along the x and y-axis automatically. The system automatically measures 18 feet at 1 time. A detailed permeability profile of the core can be created.

The ability of the PDPKTM-400 system to rapidly measure accurately a large number of data points improves the statistical validity of these data, thus providing a more reliable permeability characterization of your reservoir. The results can be presented in tabular or digital form as well as in log or contour map format.
