Capillary Tube Viscometer
The capillary viscometer module is designed to measure viscosity of the reservoir fluids. It includes a receiving accumulator, one capillary column and a pressure system
It operates on the principle that any fluid displaced in laminar flow through a capillary tube of known dimensions, exerts a pressure drop across the tube, which is related to the flow rate of the fluid passing through it. The relationship is a function of the fluid viscosity.
