About Enhanced Oil Recovery Chips

Enhanced oil recovery (EOR) is a crucial process for maximizing the extraction of oil from reservoirs. At Micronit, we offer advanced lab-on-a-chip solutions designed to simulate various EOR methods in a controlled and efficient manner.

Available EOR Chip Types

Micronit’s EOR chips come in three primary types, each mimicking different rock structures to provide versatile experimental setups. Our EOR chips are manufactured using high-quality borosilicate glass, ensuring durability and precision. The production process involves:

  • Etching Techniques: Utilizing both wet and dry etching methods to create detailed and precise channel structures.
  • Bonding Processes: Ensuring strong adhesion between glass layers to withstand high pressures and temperatures.
  • Physical Rock Structure

    Mimicking the intricate designs of actual rock formations, these chips are created from digitized scans of physical sandstone rocks. They offer the most realistic simulation for physical EOR methods.

  • Random Structure

    Our random structure chips feature randomly placed porous structures, ideal for chemical (CEOR) and microbial (MEOR) experiments. They provide a realistic simulation of unpredictable rock formations.

  • Uniform Structure

    These chips are designed with a systematically organized structure, featuring equally sized pores and channels. This setup is perfect for experiments requiring consistent and repeatable conditions.
