Permanently installed Horizontal Flow Loops

This highly adaptable facility consists of several loops of pipe of various dimensions, ranging from 3.5" - 7" OD. High rate flow testing can be performed both inhouse and outdoor in flow loops up to 1400m long using clean water. Our various high capacity triplex pumps can readily be hooked up to the system. Typical projects that have used this facility include well tractor performance testing, valve flow characteristic tests, side pocket operations using tractors, blasting of glass plugs, differential pressure measurments, plug setting & releasing/demolition, surface testing of jars, testing of shifting tools, MPD projects, autochoke validation experiments, testing of coiled tubing and other coiled cable systems.
