In-line viscometer providing on-location measurement
The Model 3330 In-Line Viscometer from Chandler Engineering provides real-time, on-location measurement of fracturing fluid viscosity. The viscometer is designed to withstand the harsh field conditions that fracking crews encounter on a constant basis. In addition, the Model 3330 sits on the low pressure side of the blender, utilizing a slip stream flow through sample system off the hydration tank. The Model 3330 can be disassembled for cleaning after each run, and critical components can be replaced with minimal operator intervention. The Model 3330 comes with API R1-B1 geometry standard and operates at a fixed shear rate of 511 sec-1. The instrument sends a continuous measurement of viscosity and temperature to a treatment monitoring vehicle via 4-20mA signal loops. It also provides operators with a direct, real-time readout of current viscosity from the front panel display. The Model 3330 meets all of the American Petroleum Institute (API) requirements for viscosity testing.
