Acoustic Separators / Two Phase Separators

An ultrasonic transducer mounted in the bottom of the sensing chamber accurately measures the distance to the meniscus between two fluids. The acoustic fluid separator eliminates level reading errors that can occur with visual methods for measuring the meniscus height when there is oil or other residue on the sight window.

What’s New With DCI

cfas-1DCI patented CFAS (Continuous Flow Acoustic Separator) Technology combines DCI’s two phase acoustic separator with two VPA syringe pumps to provide precise back pressure control and accurate measurement of each fluid phase at reservoir pressure and temperature conditions

  • Accurate determination of the volume of each phase produced in a core flood experiment
  • Real time measurement of each phase volume
  • Not limited to the finite volume of the acoustic separator
  1. Acoustic separator with analog output proportional to meniscus level
  2. VPA in external feedback mode maintains meniscus at a constant level and monitors precise volume of heavy fluid produced.
  3. VPA in pressure control mode keeps back pressure constant and monitors precise volume of lighter fluid produced.
