Gerosion together with University of Iceland (and the Science Institute of University of Iceland), Innovation Center Iceland and Reykjavik University, recently received a grant from the Infrastructure Fund of Rannís. The grant was for advanced AutoClave equipment with a specialized pressure vessel for simulated testing of materials in supercritical conditions. The equipment will enable us to simulate the condition of supercritical wells and pre-test all materials and to simulate supercritical condition of water, reaching temperatures above 500°C and 300 bar pressure in a 3L pressure vessel. The plan is that the customised AutoClave device will, in addition to being able to generate very high temperature and pressure, also have a specific gas injection system, where the chemical composition of the steam can be varied.
