Schematic of Core Flooding Experiment


During this weekend, I tried to draw the schematic of core flooding experiments for transport of SAP through fracture models. This plot shows the basic elements in the core flooding experiments. Swollen SAP particles and/or brine were injected into the fracture model by the hydraulic pressure from the pumps. The flow rate of effluent from fracture and matrix were recorded with the various pressure on the different sections of the model. The major difference between fracture core model, glass bead pack, and transparent open fracture model is that for glass bead pack and transparent open fracture model, there is no outlet for fluid through matrix. The procedure should be almost the same.

Note: If the volume of water the pump can deliver each time and the volume of the swollen SAP particles are sufficient for one experiment, one set of pump and accumulator is needed only.

    hi
    if it is possible please give me some explanation about core flooding for (enhanced oil recovery)
    thanks

    Hi. Have you made any experiments with core polymer flooding? I study in Kazakhstan, and I am working in this way. I want to to exchange by information with you.
