After nearly 28 months of strict auditing process, , Vertechs High Pressure Invasion Tester (HPIT®) has received the invention authorization from Canadian Intellectual Property Office in Aug 2018.
Vertechs HPIT is designed to test invasion severity of drilling fluids. Comparing to traditional invasion/LCM instruments, HPIT do not require external power source such as gas or electricity to pressurize up to 900 psi testing pressure. HPIT is portable and can be easily operated by single personnel to perform invasion tests on WSM/LCM & drilling fluids at any location, anytime. Additionally, the transparent window allows a visible observation for the depth and rate of invasion test result.
This portable, gas-free, visualized, high pressure tester has filled the technology gap for onsite drilling fluids’ and LCM real-time invasion performance tests, which provides a reliable reference for field engineers to handle circulation lost much more effectively.
