Ion Analysis of Water Using ICP-IC: Our laboratory utilizes both ICP and IC technologies to perform comprehensive ion analysis of water samples. This service is crucial for detecting and quantifying inorganic salts and minerals that can impact the formation and stability of hydrates in various industrial processes.

Quantitative Analysis of Hydrate Inhibitors by HPLC: We offer precise quantitative analysis of hydrat inhibitors, such as methanol, glycols, and other chemical additives, using HPLC. This analysis is essential for ensuring the optimal concentration of inhibitors in systems susceptible to hydrat formation, thereby preventing blockages and maintaining flow assurance.

Hydrate Rocking Cell/Autoclave (AAHI): Our advanced analytical hydrat inhibitor (AAHI) studies are conducted using hydrat rocking cell and autoclave systems. These tests simulate the conditions under which hydrats form and dissociate, allowing us to evaluate the effectiveness of various inhibitors and strategies under controlled laboratory conditions.

Research Areas:

Hydrate Flow Loop Testing:A cornerstone of our research efforts is hydrat flow loop testing. This sophisticated testing regime allows us to simulate real-world pipeline conditions to study the formation, growth, transport, and inhibition of hydrates in dynamic flow systems. Our hydrat flow loop testing is invaluable for developing and validating technologies and methodologies to manage and mitigate hydrat-related challenges in the oil and gas industry.
