Hydraulic Permeability Test Equipment

AGE standard hydraulic test equipment is available to suit NQ, HQ and PQ-sized cored holes, and can be employed in a single or straddle configuration to test large or more specific zones.

Single Hydraulic Test Equipment

Single Hydraulic Test Equipment is designed for testing cored holes whilst drilling progresses to greater depths.

When a zone of interest is identified in the retrieved core sample, the drill rods are moved back a suitable distance such that the deployed packer equipment can be inflated above the zone of interest. Once inflated (using water), testing of water injection flow rates at various injection pressures can commence. Injection pressure can be controlled via a bypass system on the injection flowmeter board, supplied as part of the standard equipment.

AGE Hydraulic Test Equipment is available for hire or sale and, if required, a suitably trained operator can assist with operations or the training of on-site staff.


Straddle Hydraulic Test Equipment

Straddle Hydraulic Test Equipment is designed for testing specific zones of cored holes, once drilling to total depth is complete.

When a zone of interest is identified in the retrieved core sample, the drill rods are moved back a suitable distance such that the deployed packer equipment can be inflated. In this configuration, two packers straddle the zone of interest. Once inflated (using water), testing of water injection flow rates at various injection pressures can commence. Injection pressure can be controlled via a bypass system on the injection flowmeter board, supplied as part of the standard equipment.
