Laboratory Analysis

ProLabNL features a full fluid property characterisation laboratory:

  • Density:  Fluid’s density is measured using a portable density meter which works based on a oscillating U-tube  principle equipped with a highly accurate platinum thermometer.
  • Oil in Water: Oil in water content is measured by solvent extraction method in combination to UV fluoresence technology measurement.
  • Water in Oil:  Water in oil is measured based on a volume fraction measurement method. Samples are centrifuged to allow for separation of the water from the oil.
  • Viscosity
  • Salinity
  • PH
  • Dissolved Oxygen


These features enable for on-site fluid characterisation and fast and reliable measurement of the performance of OiW and WiO values from processing equipment. ProlabNL can also arrange for spot checks on samples at third party labs if desired.
