Fann Pressurized Consistometer is designed to perform thickening time tests in accordance with API specifications. Cement slurries are tested at temperatures up to 400°F and pressures up to 15,000 psig. The consistometer slurry cup assembly uses a rotating paddle and a stationary cylindrical slurry cup. The rotational force on the paddle is proportional to the consistency of the cement slurry and is measured through a servo drive computer. Consistency values, recorded in Bearden units of consistency (Bc), are indicated on a plot generated by the data acquisition system.
A solid heating/cooling jacket surrounds the slurry cup where a thermocouple is used to measure the cement slurry temperature. After completion of the test, cooling water is circulated through this cooling jacket to cool the pressure vessel. This consistometer is equipped with state-of-the-art temperature control and data acquisition systems that provide ease of use for the operator. Temperature control is programmed through the use of a touch screen monitor. A plot showing temperature, pressure and consistency may be plotted on any printer or shared through the computer.
