he Model 6500-M Mini-Loop™ is a benchtop instrument (patent pending) that allows for rapid test turn-around for the repeat testing of stimulation fluids. The Mini Flow Loop circulates fluid through a single test section and uses custom Chandler Engineering software to record and analyze the test data. This enables reliable testing in a simple to operate, compact system. The unit is ideal for Quality Control Testing of Slick Water Fracturing Fluids. The Mini Flow Loop system incorporates a low shear, progressive cavity pump for circulation of base fluids. A differential pressure transmitter measures the friction pressure across the test section. The friction-reducing agent is added directly into the five-gallon reservoir mixing tank.
The Chandler software is designed to be user-friendly and collects all required data during the test cycle for use in friction reduction calculations. Data may be stored in a test-specific .CSV file for analysis.
Optional add-on module to enable real-time display of flow rate and fluid density.
