Ingrain Enhances Oil Sands Capabilities with Specialized Wire Saw

Ingrain, the digital rock physics lab, has expanded its ability to analyze poorly consolidated rocks such as oil sands with the installation of a specialized diamond wire saw.  "Oil sands need to be cut to the proper size for imaging," explained Boaz Nur, Ingrain operations manager. "The Diamondwire Millenium Series Capstan Saw Model CS410 makes a series of programmable cuts using diamond-impregnated wire. The CS410 constantly monitors wire deflection and adjust the velocity of the saw, which minimizes the stress on the rock sample and keeps it closer to in situ conditions."
