NMR Rock Core Analyzer

roca 2015 small cropped

The Magritek 2MHz NMR Rock core analyzer is used to analyse core samples from hydrocarbon reservoirs.   A range of core sizes can be accommodated, from 1″ diameter to 4″ diameter.

Magritek’s Rock Core Analyzer has very short echo times down to 30 microseconds which enable high resolution analysis of of pore size distribution.   The system has a very high signal to noise ratio which significantly reduces the measurement time for a single sample, particularly on tight rock samples where small pores dominate.


Spinsolve Benchtop NMR Spectrometer for Petrochemical Analysis

The Spinsolve benchtop NMR spectrometer can be used to analyse crude oils, fuels and other petrochemical products. This can be used for chemometrics which is important for crude oil combinations and predicting product properties.
