Dynamic Scale Loop

Scaled Solutions’ state-of-the-art Dynamic Scale Loop allows for high quality testing of scale inhibitor performance at high temperature and high pressure. Differential pressure is measured independently across the scaling coil and inline filter, allowing for investigation of different scaling mechanisms. This versatile design can also be used as the basis for rigs for exotic or asphaltene scales, depending on client needs.

We now have 2 options available for our Dynamic Scale Rig.

DSR 5000

Our DSR 5000 encompasses a modular design allowing for customer-specific set up. The standard design operates at conditions of 5,000 psi and 200°C and our upgraded options allow testing up to 10,000 psi.

 

Rig Characteristics:

  • Rig specifications starting from 5,000 psi and 200°C. Upgraded rigs allow testing up to 10,000 psi
  • 3 HPLC pump set-up with automated pump control including cleaning
  • 1/16” scaling coils in both 1m and 3m lengths
  • All hot system pipework and fittings (corrosion resistant Alloy 600 tubing and Monel 400 fittings as standard)
  • Temperature controlled fan assisted oven
  • Differential pressure transmitter and readout
  • Trolley- mounted frame or bench mounting available
  • Integrated safety features to control rig temperature and pressure
  • Automatic switching valve for cleaning system
  • PC for data acquisition, logging, and control
  • Pre-programmed test sequences
  • Rig design compliant to EMC, LVD and FCC regulations
  • Full training and comprehensive documentation included
  • 1-Year Warranty Period

Additional Options:

  • Pump upgrade (option between SSI and Gilson style pumps)
  • Pressure up to 10,000 psi
  • Temperature up to 250°C
  • Additional outlet points within the system
  • Shelving or drawers added to the rig for tools or storage
  • Second differential across inline filter for milder scaling regimes or capturing scale for Gas manifold fitted to rig for brine sparging with CO2 and N2 combinations – Used for anaerobic conditions or brine pH buffering
  • Set up to allow testing under anaerobic conditions specifically for investigation of very mildly scaling systems and exotic lead and zinc scales
  • Further automation available to include multiple chemical addition to reduce staff interactions
  • Choice of more corrosion resistant materials for sulphide scale conditions

 

DSR Light

Scaled Solutions’ new DSR-Light option follows the design of the DSR 5000 with respective quality materials used for rig build. The DSR-Light standard design operates at conditions up to a maximum of 3,000 psi 150°C.

 

Rig Characteristics:

  • Rig specifications up to 3,000 psi and 150°C.
  • 3 HPLC pump set-up with automated pump control including cleaning
  • Monel/ Alloy 600 hot-flow-system corrosion resistant components
  • Trolley mounted frame or bench mounting available
  • Automatic switching valve for cleaning system
  • PC for data acquisition, logging and control
  • Pre-programmed test sequences
  • User friendly system
  • Full training and comprehensive documentation included
  • Full commissioning report supplied to prove system efficiency
  • 1-Year Warranty Period
