Model 3300 In-Line Viscometers provide real-time, on-location fracturing fluid viscosity measurement.
They use industry standard Couette bob and rotor geometry plus meet all API viscosity testing requirements, it's noted.
Ruggedized for harsh field conditions, Model 3300 is easy to operate. It sits on the low-pressure side of a blender and uses a slip stream flow through sample system off the hydration truck. It's quickly disassembled for cleaning after each run. Critical components are replaced with minimal operator intervention.
The viscosmeter comes with API R1-B1 geometry standard and operates at a fixed 511 sec-1 shear rate. It sends continuous viscosity and temperature measurement to a treatment monitoring vehicle via 4-20 mA signal loops for direct, real-time readout from the front panel display.
