Oil & Gas
The equipment enables to perform corrosion tests on pipelines materials simulating a fluid circulation on a lining.
With two synchronised pumps for a continuous flow circulation fluid, a liquid is projected on coaxial electrode which permits to measure a potential difference.
An automatic system can realize fluid mixing before injection thanks to an integrated mixer where the liquid is saturated in gas (H2S).
The device also provided inhibitor additions in order to measure their electrode corrosion impact.
The apparatus is integrated in a climatic air bath allowing a temperature regulation in real dynamic fluid conditions (150°C).
It’s possible, with the synoptic or with the electric cabinet, to control the pumps (pressure regulation, constant flow rate, constant volume) , to control the temperature of climatic air bath, and record the values of the different parameters (pressure, temperature, equivalence calculation, tube shearing stress, electrode shearing stress,...).
