The RCA 1000 instrument is based on a high pressure, high temperature recombination cell in which oil and gas solutions are injected at pre-defined volume, stirred together, heated at a desired temperature and pressurized at pressure above the saturation pressure for few hours to give a homogeneous mixture of the reservoir fluid. The instrument comes with a recombination cell jacketed in stainless steel mantel for temperature control, a magnetic driven stirrer, a rocking system for proper agitation and a temperature and pressure display panel. The top of the cell is equipped with a bull's eye window to visualize the saturation pressure.

  • Cell Volume : 2,000 cc
  • Pressure : 15,000 psi (1,000 bar)
  • Max working temperature : Ambient to 175°C (350 °F)


  • Very fast recombination operation due to the magnetic driven stirrer
  • Bull's eye window for dew point and bubble point detection
  • Rocking system to set the cell in upright and inverted position
  • Versatile as it can be used for oil and gas condensates
