* Required Fields

This setup contains a chip holder, chips for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) and tubing. In addition you can select the EOR-chip of your choice: with a uniform, random or physical rock structure and an optional hydrophobic coating.

These microfluidic chips can be used in enhanced oil recovery research, reservoir engineering or environmental research. They are used to verify simulation models of rock-pore structures in the EOR field.

This setup is the best choice when you use a pressure up to 4-5 bar. In case more pressure is desired our high pressure setup is the best choice. 

Physical rock network

This chip is designed by randomly placing rock shaped structures on the chip to resemble the shape that is obtained by cutting rock as accurately as possible. This random structure results in throats and channels between the rock structures. This method of random placement does not give information on throat size distribution. For simulation purposes, the mask (2D) design is available on request. However, experience has taught us that the complexity of this structure makes it challenging to run computer simulations on.

                

Random network

Random network porous structure chip, often used for Chemical Enhanced Oil Recovery (CEOR) and Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery (MEOR) experiments.

                  

Uniform network

A systematically organized and well-defined rock-pore structure of equally sized pores and channels.

Customer Questions
What pressure and temperature can the EOR chip hold?

The EOR chip itself are manufactured from glass an can easily withstand up to 300C. However they are supplied in a black fluidic cartridge. This cartridge can width stand up to 80C.

There’s no sealant used, two layers of glass are fusion bonded together.  

The chip can withstand easily up to 100 bar. However the external interfacing is more critical.  Our Fluidic Connect holder offers the largest pressure, up to 80 bars (maybe less at elevated temperatures). Please note that the Fluidic Connect holder is a bit more complex in use. You need a bit of feeling to apply not too much force, which might brake the chip, but sufficient to obtain sufficient sealing. It might be necessary to tighten a bit more when pressure and temperature are increased. Please remove the pressure before additional tightening.

I have a Elveflow OB1 pressure based pump what connectors do I need?

Nuts and ferrules

Elveflow uses 1/4-28 screw in connections on there reservoirs and sensors. To interface you will need Flangeless nuts 1/4-28 for 1/16" tubing, including compatible ferrules. Those nuts and ferrules are included in Elveflows "Kit Fittings Starter Pack Push-in".
This item wil look like this:

In addition you will need our connection kit. Our Connection kit includes nuts or ferrules specificilly designed for our Fluidic Connect Pro, Fluidic Connect 4515 or side connect holders.

Tubing included in "Kit Fittings Starter Pack Push-in"

The 1/16"OD PTFE tubing included in the kit has a very large ID (1/32" ~0.79mm) and is from a relatively soft material, this is not so suitable for bot our Fluidic Connect Pro and Fluidic Connect 4515 holders as there's very limited wall thickness. We recommend alternative tubing, like ETFE with a maximum of 0.5mm ID. This tubing is included in our connection kits.

Use of 1/32" tubing
1/32" tubing can be in combination with our Fluidic Connect Pro holder also be used, but need alternative ferrules. The ElveFlow "Kit Fittings Starter Pack Push-in" doesn't include sleeves for use of 1/32" OD tubing. They are included in our "Syringe to tube connection kit"
Our Sideconnect our Fluidic Connect 4515 holders doens't support 1/32" tubing.

I have a Fluigent pressure based pump, what connectors do I need?

Lineup

We recommend the dafault Fluigent kits (FLOW EZ™ SUPPLY KIT, FLUIWELL KIT or P-CAP KIT)
The P-cab or FLUIWELL KIT already contains 0.5m 1/16" OD FEP tubing with a ID of 500µm, when you use only limited pressures, you can try this tubing first and only order:

For optimal performance we recommend our complete connection kit, the FEP tubing might be a bit soft limiting the pressure rating. 

MFCS

We recommend the dafault Fluigent kits (MFCS™-EZ HIGH/LOW PRESSURE KIT, FLUIWELL KIT or P-CAP KIT ) 

The P-cab or FLUIWELL KIT already contains 0.5m or 1m 1/16" OD FEP tubing with a ID of 500µm, when you use only limited pressures, you can try this tubing first and only order:

For optimal performance we recommend our complete connection kit, the FEP tubing might be a bit soft limiting the pressure rating.
