Dolomite Launches the New Porous Media Chip Providing Rapid Advances in Petrochemical Research
14 Nov 2012

Dolomite, a world leader in microfluidics design and manufacture, has introduced the new Porous Media Chip, which enables statistically representative modeling of complex porous sandstone rock structures. The chip will find application in academic research (earth science and engineering), the petrochemical industry, environmental testing and groundwater analysis.

The chip features an idealized 2-dimensional net like structure of intersecting 100 µm diameter capillaries, forming pore bodies joined by different types of throats. Pore bodies and throats are assigned standard geometries to simplify structural modeling and analysis. The chip can be used in single and multi-phase fluid (oil, water or gas) flow studies through porous media. The results can be used to estimate and predict the characteristics of soils and rocks.

Operating over a wide pressure range up to 30 bar, the Porous Media Chip is compatible with Dolomite’s Top Interface 4-way and Linear Connector 4-way, allowing quick and reliable fluidic connection to 1.6mm OD tubing. Capillary connections can be added to increase the operating pressure up to 350 bar. The Porous Media Chip is also available in quartz for improved optical transmission.
