Understanding the physical properties of fluids used in various applications within the oil and gas industry is important. Viscosity, in particular, has a major effect on fluid behavior. It determines how oil is extracted from a reservoir, how it is transported, how it is efficiently processed, and how it behaves as a product.
RheoSense offers a unique solution for characterizing the flow of petroleum fluids. By combining the best features of microfluidic and MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Systems) technologies, RheoSense has created viscometers that provides superior viscosity analysis for critical oil and gas applications:
